Routes / Lewis and Clark Trail
« on: December 17, 2016, 09:54:52 am »
It's been a few years since my last long distance trip and I'm starting to feel the need to do another one, :). I think I'd like to do the Lewis and Clark trail in part because it looks reasonably challenging and in part because I live in IA so the start will be dead easy. I figure I'll just ride to the start from my home and fly back. I can carve out 10 weeks or so to do the ride.

I've been starting to do some homework on the ride. I figure I'll pick up the guide that Adventure Cyclist put out in 2003. I've started reading some of the journals online as well.

It looks, however, that not too many people do this ride. I used the search function and not a lot popped up on the ride on this website.

I'm curious why there is not that much info on it here. Is it just not a very popular ride or are parts of it hard enough that relatively few people do it? Some of the challenges I see are the mixed surfaces (but to me that's a plus) and some of the roads seem busier than I'd like (I may try to avoid those sections).

Do you have to go through a verification process with every post?  I'd like to participate but I have never seen a forum that requires verification once you sign up. 

If this is a permanent feature of this forum, this will dissuade me from participating.
