Routes / Re: Looking for route suggestions? Tips to help others help you.
« on: September 12, 2019, 03:02:50 pm »
This discussion area frequently sees requests from riders looking for route suggestions, on and off the Adventure Cycling Route Network. There are a number of experienced, knowledgeable touring cyclists on the forum who would like to help you. You can help them do so by providing some information up front in your request:

  • What is your timeframe for riding this route? Include at least beginning and ending months.
  • What kind of riding do you like? Dislike? Consider things like scenery, hills, urban settings.
  • Are you interested in taking in historic or cultural sites? Or are you on the fast track?
  • What are your overnight preferences? Camping in campgrounds, stealth camping, hotels, Warmshowers, a combination?
  • What is your plan for eating? Restaurants or cooking in camp?
  • How many miles a day do you intend to ride?
These are good questions to be asking yourself anyway as you plan a trip so share them up front when asking for advice.

If you have other suggestions to go on this list, let me know and I'll add them.
