Connecting ACA Routes / Re: Salt Lake City to Kansas City
« on: June 28, 2016, 01:21:52 pm »
I am thinking to retrace part of your route - at least into Wyoming until I can pick up the TransAmerica. What route did you take out of SLC? Did you have to ride on I80 or I84?

I have to go from Salt Lake City to Kansas City. Thoughts on heading east to pick up the Trans America or South to pick up the Great Parks South and then head east. Anyone made this connection? Recommendations?

I like the look of the Comotion or maybe Cannondale.

Sorry! Browsing tandems! All the reasons you describe are why I would like to ride the Northern Tier.

Anyone touring on a tandem? Recommendations on models?

Basically because I really have never travelled in some of those states along the northern border. My wife and I are both avid cyclists - just looking for the tandem experience.

I'm browsing them now...any recommendations?

Anyone else taken a tandem on the Northern Tier? Looking to make a cross country tour next summer with my wife.

If you are touring in Europe no reason to mess with a liquid fuel stove. Fuel cartridges are ubiquitous throughout Western Europe and relatively inexpensive.

All of that is true but our cities could have basic bicycle infrastructure. I lived four years in Alexandria, VA and could not ride my bike 6 miles to the Pentagon where I worked due to the lack of lanes and safe options.

Just putting in basic things like bike lanes, bike racks, and other basic amenities for using bikes as a daily mode of transportation.

Newfy, I disagree about trailers. Lots of people pulling them here in Europe for daily hauling and touring. Last time I was in France I passed at least a dozen folks in a 14 day period pulling BOBs or some trailer.

Everyday I ride over this bridge that connects my town with the next one here in Germany near Stuttgart. I ask myself constantly why can't we have this in the US? Used to live in Alexandra, VA and it was too damn dangerous just to ride to the District from where my house was situated, a friend was hit twice on the street outside our neighborhood.

NC Bike Route 2 with a few slight variations will be a good route. If you get the NC Delorme you could easily pick your way on and off.

NC DOT provides free maps
