General Discussion / Selkirk Loop
« on: September 28, 2021, 01:50:33 pm »
Can anyone provide feedback on the traffic on The Selkirk Loop? Perhaps more specifically US 95 (northbound). We are planning to do the Loop next August. Starting in Sandpoint ID and going counter-clockwise. Someone mentioned to me a concern over many log trucks and traffic on 95 (primary southbound). Would appreciate any feedback.

« on: June 23, 2020, 09:32:13 am »
Wondering if there might be a “preferred” direction of travel on the Great Allegheny Passage and C&O?? Currently planning from Pittsburgh to DC but curious if anyone has an opinion otherwise? We can obviously go either way.

General Discussion / The Katy Trail- What tires?
« on: May 25, 2020, 05:56:47 pm »
We are preparing to ride The Katy Trail in Missouri starting June 7th. We have “gravel” bikes that can accommodate 35’s and more- but we don’t want too big to avoid excess drag. What tires would be recommended?
30’s with Road tread?
35’s with knobby tread?

General Discussion / Lightweight Locking cable for touring

Any brand or type preferences for a lightweight cable and lock for long distance bike touring? Needs to be long enough to wrap around 2 bikes and something like a picnic table!?!?

We are planning a TransAmerica trip. Self supported. Does anyone have a recommendation for a good headlight? Probably only would consider battery operated to avoid charging concerns.

General Discussion / TransAmerica East to West or West to East?

My wife and I are planning to do The TransAmerica route starting in May of next year. Is there any data that supports traveling either West to East or East to West as being preferred?
Wind? Weather? Sun in your eyes?
We are thinking East to West currently.
