General Discussion / Cycling across the US (east to west)
« on: September 03, 2020, 02:31:12 pm »
Hi Everyone,

I'm planning to start cycling in mid September from Washington, DC, and head toward California. I will likely bike down the east coast and then westward from Florida to California, to get decent weather as we move through fall toward winter. My substantive goal is to video blog about migrant women's rights amid COVID-19.

I would love this Adventure Cycling crowd to be a supportive community as I go! Let me know if you have any suggestions for fundraising cycling trips, publicizing the content (social media, places to publish articles, media coverage) -- as well as cycling routes, gear, camping, etc. And tell me if you'd like to join in for part of it.

Warm wishes to all,

Thank you to everyone for all your tips! Hugely appreciated. The breaking news is that due to the economic crisis brought about by the pandemic, I LOST MY JOB! Enormous layoffs at my organization. So the downside is no salary and an intense need to do a job search. I should be sending out a million resumes and doing informational interviews, etc. But I also can take a vacation. So the upside is now I can cycle all day without needing to be at meetings. Wifi/cell reception would be good so I can stay in touch and work on my travel blog. Also, I now have an even higher preference for free or low cost camping over inns and hotels.

I have another question: is there such a thing as a kayak one can bring on a bicycle? How does that work? I know there are inflatable rafts that can go in backpacks...

Much gratitude to this awesome community!

Routes / Biking New England in July

Hi Everyone! I'd like to cycle in Vermont/New Hampshire/Maine in July.
I'd like a combination of coast, farmland, small towns, and woods
I have a hybrid bike with upright handlebars, and a rack for paniers.
I can bring a tent with me, to sleep outside.
Here are my biggest challenges:
- I work a full time job (remotely)! So 9-5 M-F I need a roof, electricity, and phone reception and to look presentable on Zoom!
- Weekdays I can ride 6-9am and 5-8pm. On weekends and July 4 I can ride all day. Not super in shape and I don't have a speedy bicycle, so 20 miles on weekdays and 40 on weekends?
- What are the best practices regarding coronavirus? For food, lodging, and riding.
- What's a good loop? I can see that there are three relevant routes: Atlantic Coast, Green Mountains, and Northern Tier. I'm trying to figure out where I can leave my car and get back to it. I'll be driving to the area from Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
Thanks everyone!
