Routes / Re: Transamerica - West to East Start Date
« on: July 08, 2021, 03:40:01 pm »
Great info, thanks all!

I'm riding west to east just for the convenience of starting near my hometown, Portland, OR. A friend has offered to ride with me and another friend has offered to be a support car for crossing Oregon—which will also be nice to ease myself into it befor ebreaking off solo/going unsupported. Long story short, I'm not looking too much into winds.

That's a good point though for McKenzie Pass. I'll probably try to time it around then and be flexible to leave mid-June. Appreciate all the knowledge and tips

Routes / Transamerica - West to East Start Date

Hi all—I'm looking at doing the transam next year. It will be my first cross-country touring trip. I don't know if I'm missing it somewhere, but I can't for the life of me find a straight answer to the question: When is the best time to start when heading west to east? I'm budgeting 3 months to complete it, combo of campgrounds/free camping/motels.

Ideally, I'd love to start late June or early July. Is that too late? Could I go any later? Anyone have a range they'd recommend? Thanks!
