Routes / Southern Tier
« on: April 11, 2013, 10:57:38 am »
Hi all, first post here. I am riding the Southern Tier leaving Phoenix the first week in Sept. I live in Sun City Az. so realize the temps. That's why I'm riding from home and not San Diego. I am riding solo and self contained, either camping, Warm Showers or the occasional motel. My concerns are the long stretches w/o any services and "Stealth" camping. I've camped all over the US but never off just the side of the road. Last summer I road the Grand Canyon Connector and the Oregon Coast but stayed in mostly St Parks or WS. I'm 60 and in reasonably good shape and plan to ride 30-50 mi per day. Any advice would be most appreciated. I do have my ACA maps.

Routes / Southern Tier in March of 2013

HI to all, I am planning to leave home (Sun City, Az) and drive to San Diego to start my Southern Tier ride in early March. I know I could just leave from home and go East as I 'm on the ACA route. Also a Warm Shower Host. But I want to ride from "pond to pond". I would appreciate any advice regarding camping sites as I'll be using Warm Showers whenever possible and maybe a motel or two. Also what is the advice in regards to fenders? My ride is a Novaro Randonee with Ortlieb ft and rear.BTW,I just finished the Oregon Coast in August and would highly recommend it to anyone.

I'm preparing to ride the Southern Tier in March 2013. Does any one have any used (very good condition) maps they would like to sell?
