Routes / Route Advise Needed: Across Idaho
« on: May 03, 2012, 12:09:32 pm »
For my cross county ride this summer, I need advise on crossing Idaho into Oregon.  Im looking at riding 20 thru Yellowstone.  Riding A2 into Dubois, 22 to Arco, 20 to Interstate 84, where I would work my way up to Boise (67 and 78) and catch 26 across Oregon. 
Is anyone familiar with these roads.  Are they reasonable, or would I be better off catching the ACA route up to Missoula and back down?  Thanks.

Routes / Route Advise Needed: Across Wyoming

For my cross county tour this summer: I'm thinking about coming north-west from the Cowboy Trail in Nebraska (via 385) to the Black Hills (southwest corner of South Dakota) and across northern Wyoming. 
This would be: 16 from Custer City, thru Gillette, Buffalo, & on to Ten Sleep.  Then 30, & 120 to Cody.  And 20/16 on into Yellowstone.
From here I will work my way across Idaho (another post).  Is anyone familiar with these roads?  Thoughts?  Thanks much.

Routes / TransAmerica from DC, but I need to go east first.

Mid May I fly into Washington DC to begin my ride to Portland, Oregon, but first, to make it official, I need to ride another 120 or so miles to the Atlantic.  I've heard about a shuttle to Rohoboth Beach, but cant find info on it.  Any other ideas?

And, as long as I have your attention, Im thinking about riding the C&O/Allegheny Trail, from DC towards Pittsburg.  Good idea?  Which route should I take if it's raining.

I should mention that, while I've done quite a bit of touring in the past, for the first time, I'm dealing with time constraints.

Thanks all.

Pacific Northwest / how to get car from Portland (or Bend) to Brookings
« on: August 24, 2011, 10:45:25 am »
Morning all, my wife and I are planning to cycle the Oregon coast (for her 50th birthday), beginning on Labor Day from Astoria to Bookings.  We live in Bend, and are trying to figure out how to get our car from Astoria or Portland to Brookings, or thereabouts.  We have about a month for the ride, and will be using a (Burley folding) trailer, which makes busing difficult. 
Any ideas?
