Connecting ACA Routes / Looking for advice from Pittsburgh, west to TA.
« on: January 19, 2019, 01:49:58 pm »
I live in the DC area and wonder if it’s better to take the classic TA route from Yorktown west or ride the C&O canal and GAP trails to Pittsburgh and west to eventually link up with the TA in Missouri. Is there a bike friendly way to get there from Pittsburgh ? Thanks, bike gurus extraordinaire!

General Discussion / Best tire width for TransAmerica (middle) route
« on: January 18, 2019, 02:30:55 pm »
Hi folks!
I’m gearing up for a cross-country shot this spring, via the classic middle TransAmerica route. I’ve done a lot of long tours but never the whole shebang. I’ve heard Schwalbe Marathon Plus are a good standard, tough as nails tire. I’m going self-contained, fully pannier-packed. What tire width do you suggest, that takes into consideration changing conditions across the country? Thanks:)
