General Discussion / anyone biked across the US in 15 days or less?

hey,

 you're right about nutrition. This is one major concern of mine. I already have a problem with nutrition, because I am very active and don't seem to get enough food no matter how much I eat. I am 5'10 and about 180 lbs, most people think of me as fit or even skinny (well, the overweight ones call me skinny) but I eat with an apetite of a 400 lb guy!

 So I know what you mean because in the past while doing strenuous activities I seemed to lose energy very quickly if I didn't have enough calories on that day.

 Are there any high-calorie snacks I can carry with me or any meal replacements that might be able to fit in my speed-pac?

Thanks

hey,

thanks for your valuable feedback.

I've given it a lot of thought and the more I think about it the more I get the motivation and desire to do it. I am planning to travel very light. I found the kind of backpack that would be perfect for such a trip. It is called speed-pac (www.speed-pac.com). Very aerodynamic and doesn't make your back sweat. Hopefully it won't slow me down much.

And I am not planning on camping or cooking. I am gonna try to stay in motels/churches/homeless shelters. As far as food, I will have to eat on the road and plan my route accordingly and carry some energy supplements. The only other things I might carry are extra shorts,pair of socks,extra t-shirt,and mischellaneous items like my phone and and iPod etc.

Thanks for the link you gave me, some interesting information there.

Regards

Hey guys,

 I am planning to bike from San Diego to Norfolk this coming spring of 2006. Due to limited time and budget, I am planning to pretty much race across as fast as I can. This is my first time and I was wondering if anyone has biked across this fast because I have a few questions and could use a lot of tips. Hope to hear back from ya

Thanks
