Routes / 3-4 month USA 2024
« on: August 06, 2023, 09:45:10 am »
Hello,

After 1 month trips to Spain this year and Scotland last year I (56 from Holland -Europe) want to go for a longer trip in 2024. Plan is to go to USA and bicycle for around 3-4 month. Back in 1995 I went already the Cascade track from Seattle to LA. Now I like to explore more East to West. Montana seems great (especially after the Montana Story movie). Maybe parts of or combination of the Lewis & Clark Bicycle; TransAmerica; Northern Tier and Parks, Peaks, and Prairies looks great also.

My question is on planning. I like to start early next year in order to avoid the heat in the summer. So then it seems logic to start in the East and travel to the West towards the mountains with lower temperatures. But I read that the wind is quit strong from West to East. What are your advices when to start and where? Start in April or is that to early? Is the wind a major concern or do not care too much?

Thanks!
