Has anyone had any luck making a DIY map case for the handlebar bag?  I have an Ortleib, but it has no map case.  Thank you

Pacific Northwest / Lewis and Clarke vs Transam: oregon to Missoula
« on: January 31, 2022, 08:41:42 pm »
I'm deciding between the Lewis and Clarke Trail and the TransAM from Oregon for a ride from ORegon to Silverthorn, CO.

I'm 65, prob riding solo, camping, motels, cooking and eating out, about 50 miles per day.  I don't want to purchase all the maps in order to make this decision.  I have never been to Oregon before.

 I want to consider/compare the the rigor and traffic and interest of each trail. 

Lewis and Clarke:  I like the idea of the Columbia River Gorge for the beauty.  This Trail is shorter by about 180 miles.  But some of it is unpaved and includes gravel.  Do the alternative routes give a paved option?

TransAm is certainly beautiful.  Not sure if it is less challenging than the Lewis and Clarke Trail apart from the mileage. 

Thank you.

Routes / Tetons route
« on: May 18, 2021, 06:17:04 pm »
I saw in an ACA email a recommendation to try the Teton trail instead of the high-traffic Yellowstone Park route.  Does that mean the dirt/gravel route?  I don't see a Tetons map in the ACA offerings.  Is there another recommendation?  I don't want to ride on gravel.
