Routes / Re: UGRR help
« on: March 18, 2013, 09:49:55 pm »
Thanks I need to do more homework, I am planning to finishing my ride by back tracking to Pittsburgh and return home by the Great Allegheny Passage and C & O Canal Towpath, this is where I will encounter gravel and dirt paths. Anyone have any words of wisdom about the GAP,C&O part of the ride.  Thanks

Routes / UGRR help
« on: March 15, 2013, 12:00:24 am »
I'm planning on riding the UGRR this August and would like any input. I'm doing this on a bent with skinny tires and hope to average 50-60 miles a day. I understand it's going to be hot, I ride in the heat just have to keep hydrated.  I understand that parts of the ride are on gravel from past posts, any updates on this and will HP tires be a problem? Looking forward to hearing from other riders about their experience. Thanks

Mid-Atlantic / Anyone up for the Outer Banks

How about leaving Suffolk and follow the Atlantic Coast bike route , section 4 down the Outer Banks over to Cedar Island and back to Suffolk. I plan on 60 miles a day
should take 10 days, camping weather permitting. Looking to leave Oct.14

I agree looks like a little side trip may be in order. Thanks for the help I will have to add a little extra time. I'll post as I get closer to the ride.

I want to ride from Farmville Virginia to Norfolk Virginia & could use a little help. Has anyone ridden from Southside to the Tidewater area?  Looking at a map going from Suffolk to Norfolk could be a problem,  looks like road I can't ride on. Anybody got any help on this?

I did the ride this past week the first leg was to Laweranceville, great Town I spoke with the Mayor who allowed me to pitch my tent behind the Town Office, if you are in the area they are cycle friend, also they are part of the Rails -to-Trails. The second leg was to just past Franklin found a nice setting with a great pond as my second night out. Then on in to Norfolk nice ride just a little hot. Getting around Suffolk and into Norfolk was really easy just through Suffolk stay on 58 and turn into Military Highway. The return trip I did two centuries back to back. Two days home. Great Ride
