Routes / Is April 15 to early to start the TA?
« on: January 29, 2008, 06:57:52 pm »
Im actually a backpacker with bad feet, so I thought I would take up cycling.  I plan on doing the TransAm trail starting April 15, 2008.  I have a new Trek 520 with all the required stuff for long distance cycling.  What I need to know is April 15 to early to start and anything else a beginning long distance cyclist should know.

General Discussion / Shipping the bike when trip is over!

I live in NJ and will be going coast to coast westbound  via the TA this spring.  How do I get my bike back to NJ w/o riding it back?  What is the preferred method of shipping a bike home after the trek is over?  Will I be able to find a bicycle shop that will ship it for me in Portland, OR?

General Discussion / Stealth Camping?

After reading a number of journals I notice that everybody either stays in a motel, campground or public park.  Doesnt anybody stealth camp?  While backpacking I am used to hiking until I drop and any flat spot will do!

Is there a reason why cyclists do not do the same?  Is trespassing the problem?  Surely there must be enough open spaces where that is not a problem.
