Thanks Ray,for your help. I'll check out the link you provided and get my maps out and try to see I can do some day trips in that area.
The section I was planning to ride was from Pensacola Beach to Panama City Beach.
Thanks again,

Routes / Route 98 along the Gulf of Mexico
« on: September 25, 2021, 12:00:24 pm »
Many years ago, I drove along to route,however I can't remember if it has a wide shoulder for cycling.
I'm thinking of riding the area in Jan/Feb of 2022. Looking to do short rides 30-40 miles a day and stay in hotels.
Any information would be helpful.

You might try Craisgslist,under Ride Share. Someone might be driving a pickup on that route and you could pay for their fuel.

There is a difference between hotels/motels and hostels.
The last time I stayed in a hotel or motel I can't recall anyone checking my sleeping gear. :D

Tony I'm sure your palatial estates on both side of the Atlantic have top quality beds.
I bet you miss the Aussie meat pies.

Not to say that most motels/hotels aren't clean,however I prefer to sleep in ( or on ) my own sleeping bag. I'll even put my sleeping pad on the floor and sleep on that,rather than the bed.

Where could I buy a full map of the Natchez Trace ?
I realize there are plenty of places to download online, however I can't seen to find anyone selling one for cyclist.
Thanks for any help.

 I've read various post from different sites,however I wasn't able to find out if it's better to ride south or start in SD and go north. It appears most riders head south. This ride would start late September.

On this sad topic, I have been told that a cyclist was hit by a truck and killed last month on the southern tier. I believe it was on the panhandle in Fl. Does anyone have any details of what might have happened ?
On riding in Florida your dealing with lots of tourist who don't know the roads and are looking for road signs etc. In my opinion anywhere you ride you have to be a very defensive and not concerned who might have the right of way. It's your life.

Has anyone cycled Death valley in the winter ?
I realize the cold nights,but temps during the day seem to be good for cycling.
I would be self contained,however would also doing lodging.
