Routes / East Coast Trip Suggestion
« on: December 15, 2008, 02:05:36 pm »
Thanks Jay - I will check those out!  I'm still trying to convince my wife to let me go for an extra week so I can go up all the way to Maine, but I don't think it will happen.

I'll be camping on route - any campgrounds that you highly recommend or that I should avoid on route from MD to MA/CT?  Any campgrounds close by to towns that were worth visiting for the afternoon/evening?

On my trip from DC to Williamsburg, VA, I really enjoyed stopping off at Fredericksburg (the site of a civil war battle) and would recommend taking some extra time there...

Thanks razor!  Sounds like going north may be a good option!  If I end the trip somewhere in CT/MA do you recommend any spots where my wife and kids (1 & 4) could drive up and meet me to spend a few days?  Maybe Boston (never been there)?

Hi All - I'm a newbie to the forums, and I'm looking for some route suggestions.  Here are the criteria:
- I have around 10 days to spend either in February (brrr...) or maybe some time in April/May/early June
- I like to do around 55-60 miles/day
- I live close to the ACA route in Baltimore, Maryland and I would like to be able to start or end close to home or within a 3-4 hour driving distance away.  Doesn't have to be a loop.
- I'd prefer country roads and not suburban sprawl where possible - how is the Atlantic coast route from Maryland north?

I rode the Atlantic Coast route through Baltimore south to Williamsburg last year.  There was a lot of traffic on the ACA route in spots especially just north of DC during rush hour.  South of DC generally I remember it being a nicer ride.

Thanks for your help!
