your welcome hope to see you out there.
I think I made up my mind to start on the 15th but could be persuaded to start on the 11th :)
Hope for a great ride and scenery and great company along the way.

As for football games in downtown Pittsburgh, University of Pittsburgh has home games on September 2, 9, and 23. They play in the same stadium as the Steelers which is currently called Acrisure Stadium formerly known as Heinz Field.

Thank you for that information

Hello everyone,
 I am wanting to do both trails from Pittsburg to Washington D.C. My questions are where is there a safe place to leave my car should I decide to drive down to Pittsburg then take the train to D.C. and ride back?
Second, was thinking of going around the end of July, maybe August or even September am open to riding these trails either of these months and as anyone would I would like some really nice weather.
Hope this isn't asking too much. :) :D
Any help would be very appreciated this will be my first bicycle tour but have been riding for many, many years and have been riding with the bags on the bike.

Has anyone used one of these? I saw one used in a CGOAB journal and have been thinking of trying one.

It's the only one I use and have been using this click-stand going on 14 years and very highly recommend it.

Routes / Atlantic Coast
« on: August 11, 2021, 09:47:24 am »
 :)Hello everyone,
           I would like to do the Atlantic Coast Route from Bar Harbor ME. to Key West Florida next year. I will be 72 years young in 2022
This will be my first long distance tour and I am ready for it. Have a 2008 Fuji touring bike and Ortlieb Panniers front and back.
I would like help from anyone about this tour?
Should I go north to south or south to north which makes more sense ?
What time of year is a good time to start?
Also my biggest question is can I use my hammock I don't like sleeping on the ground and in a tent .
I am having a new and custom hammock made as we speak.
My last Thru-Hike of the A.T. I used a hammock all the way to Maine.
So as you can see any information is much needed and welcomed and I do appreciate your time and help.
Appalachian Thru-Hike
Ga.-ME. 2001, 2002, 2003,
