South Atlantic / Good route from Fulton, MS to Hilton Head, SC?
« on: October 25, 2011, 05:31:37 pm »
We did the first half of the TransAm from the OR coast to Pueblo, CO, this year and have 2 months to do the second half starting 9/1/12. We'll take the TransAm from Pueblo and want to adjust the route to end at Hilton Head, SC. My thought is to take the TransAm to the Underground RR south to Fulton, MS, then cut across AL & GA to Hilton Head. Would appreciate any suggestions on getting from the Underground RR to Hilton Head. We're slow, 40-50 miles daily unless tailwind.

General Discussion / W2E credit card TransAm on Trek FX+ electric bike
« on: October 10, 2011, 07:45:00 pm »
My husband & I just cycled the first half of the TransAm, from the Oregon coast to Pueblo, CO. Will do the second half next year. We're weak riders, averaging 40-50 miles daily, all motels (didn't carry camping gear). He's  60 with COPD, lung lymphoma, 2 new knees and a new hip and rode a 2011 Trek FX+ electric assist bike (I rode a 20 year old Raleigh mountain bike). Wanted to post this so anyone sitting on the fence knows they can do it too :)

Gear Talk / Recommendation for a great shop to buy touring bikes
« on: June 28, 2010, 01:05:21 am »
Can anyone recommend a shop (or even a specific salesperson?) for touring bikes for a TransAm next year? We're not gearheads, to the point we've gone cross country and to Alaska on our mountain bikes just because they're trusty and familiar to us. Would love to upgrade to real touring bikes - lighter, faster, comfier, all that.

We live in Arizona but will be driving to Jackson Hole - Bozeman - Missoula - Minneapolis-St. Paul - Columbus, OH - Forest City, IA and back this summer so anywhere near that route is fair game.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Did the Northern Tier and North Star with Bikecentenniel many moons ago. Now that I've got time for the Transamerica, it's gone   ??? When? Why?
