Has anyone used one of these? http://www.click-stand.com/ I saw one used in a CGOAB journal and have been thinking of trying one.

It's the only one I use and have been using this click-stand going on 14 years and very highly recommend it.

Routes / Atlantic Coast
« on: August 11, 2021, 09:47:24 am »
 :)Hello everyone,
           I would like to do the Atlantic Coast Route from Bar Harbor ME. to Key West Florida next year. I will be 72 years young in 2022
This will be my first long distance tour and I am ready for it. Have a 2008 Fuji touring bike and Ortlieb Panniers front and back.
I would like help from anyone about this tour?
Should I go north to south or south to north which makes more sense ?
What time of year is a good time to start?
Also my biggest question is can I use my hammock I don't like sleeping on the ground and in a tent .
I am having a new and custom hammock made as we speak.
My last Thru-Hike of the A.T. I used a hammock all the way to Maine.
So as you can see any information is much needed and welcomed and I do appreciate your time and help.
Thanks

Hi,
Read through all the reply's but have you ever thought about a backpacking hammock.?
I have the Hennessy and love it versus a tent.
Used mine for my last thru-hike of the AT and much better then sleeping on the ground plus you don't have to look for a flat spot just some trees .
Just saying and some fruit for thought.

Just to let everyone know I had received my Tubus Tara and it installed perfectly on my 2008 Fuji Touring bike and really like the way it looks and handles.

General Discussion / Re: Bicycle Touring vs Backpacking
« on: December 07, 2012, 10:14:29 am »
Backpacking is pretty-much a 100% nature experience. Bicycle touring (on roads) is a mixture of nature and civilization. Backpacking allows you to get away from it all more completely. Bicycle touring allows you to travel greater distances and see more. Backpacking is good if you are nervous about sharing the road with traffic. Bicycle touring is good if you want to meet people and experience rural life.

Do both.
