Routes / Delmarva Peninsula
« on: June 26, 2019, 06:26:59 pm »
For some reason (I don't know why, exactly) I was under the impression that there was going to be a Delmarva Peninsula connector to the Atlantic Coast Route, and that Delmarva maps would be available in May. Was I mistaken in that?

Gear Talk / 48 tooth gear on a triple chainring?
« on: March 22, 2017, 09:12:23 pm »
Read a comment on another thread to the effect that a 48 tooth gear on an MTB triple isn't advisable (at least that's what I think he meant). What's the consensus?

I'm looking to do this in August as part of a ride from Wisconsin heading east, if I don't ride rte 66 in June (and maybe if I do!). I could use some experience and wisdom about the ride - facilities, camping, etc.

Routes / Rte 66, East to West, beginning June 1...

Good idea? Bad idea? How freaking hot will it BE?? A friend is planning that ride and I'm thinking about joining him, if I can get in enough training to start with 60 mile days... and if it's not going to cook my brain into a hockey puck-like cinder.

Comments welcome!

Routes / Jacksonville FL to New Orleans...

Thinking about doing this as a little side trip next spring - anyone with any experience doing this? The Southern Route seems to run along US 90, and I don't know much about that route. Any info would be appreciated! Thanks. :)

General Discussion / Toe clips? Clipless? None of the above?

This is probably swatting a hornets' nest, but what the heck, right?

What do y'all use, pedal-wise? I recently did a short 160 mile ride (sort of a 5 day "intro to touring" self-seminar - went pretty good!). When I got to where we went to visit a friend, and I was ready to start the ride back home, I realized I forgot my shoes (I was riding clipless at the time). So we went and bought a set of platform pedals and toe clips and I went from there. I kind of like having the toe clips - easy getting my foot out, which I have to do quickly sometimes with the loaded bike (yeah, I'm new to loaded-bike-wrangling).

What do you folks do, and why?

Routes / Atlantic Coast Route - Florida
« on: September 20, 2014, 10:57:26 am »
I'm thinking about riding that next year from Key West to Bar Harbor Maine (and then on to Oshkosh, WI, for Airventure). I'm looking at south Florida and as best I recall from living down there, there aren't a lot of options for camping and such. Anyone have any advice for camping from the Seven Mile Bridge northward? Thanks!

I've been looking - unsuccessfully - for a forum on the Atlantic Coast Route. Haven't found one yet (thus "unsuccessfully"). Are there forums for individual routes?
