Planning southern tier ride.  I have Verizon cell phone service.  How is cell phone service in remote areas of new Mexico & Arizona?

Are you looking for companions?
61 year old male would like to start southern tier this spring, staying at motels/hostels.

Riding thru New Mexico?

I am looking for some advice as to best route for least difficulty and services (food/drink/restaurants, hotels, etc.). We are planning to use Adventure Cycling maps (west to east) at least as far as Safford, AZ, and then either via:
1) Silver City, Las Cruzes, Alamogorda, Artesia, Lovington
2) Lordsburg, Deming, Las Cruces, then above
3) Silver City, Caballo, Truth or Consequences, Socorro, then east on US60 or US380

My ultimate destination is NYC.

Again, we are concerned about services for food, water & lodging.  What are your thoughts on beginning in Sept.

1.  Yes I plan to check PA bike routes.  My route is a generalization on actual route I plan to take.  I am not concerned too much about traffic, as I bike around NYC. 

2.  I will be riding north of Philadelphia, paralleling US1.  Just north of 1 is a local road that crosses the Delaware River into Trenton.

3. I have cycled Rt 27 before, and am aware of the traffic.  After 3000 miles I will just be glad on getting home.  But if you want to share your info on rte Lambrtville/Hoboken, please do.

4. I plan to hitch a ride over Outerbridge Crossing to Staten Island, thence ferry to Manhattan, ultimately riding north to New Rochelle, NY.  GW Bridge would be my second option.

Again, thanks for your input.

John- what would be the biggest challenge?  I have biked from Key West to Ny, but it was mostly flat.  Have done some hills in New England, but concerned with long steep inclines in the Rockies.

Would thevSouthern Tier be the least challenging cross country route across the Rocky Mtn?  Would Trans America or Nothern Tier be any easier?  When is best time of year to start in San Diego?

Last year biked from savannah to NYC.  Via cape hatteras ( via ferry), over chesapeake bridge (they will provide courtesy car to take you over bridge as long as you pay $22 toll.) Thence Lewes ferry to cape may, Atlantic highlands ferry to ny.  Great trip

Routes / Great allegheny passage/C&O canal

I plan to ride from Pittsburgh to Washington via the great allegheny trail/ C&O canal in early June.  60 to 75 miles/day, staying at motels.  Looking for riders to join me.

The bridge prohibits bicycles, but last year we rode over the bridge anyway.  No one stopped us, but be careful of the expansion joints and the traffic.  My friend ended up getting a flat tire riding over the expansion joints.
