Does anyone know where I can find an elevation chart for the ACA Atlantic Coast route?

Routes / Atlantic Coast route, best time for weather?
« on: October 14, 2009, 01:48:41 am »
I am planning an unsupported ride from Jacksonville, Fl to Boston leaving late April or early May 2010. About 1800 miles in, say, 6 or 7 weeks. What kind of weather can I expect? Would a late August or early September departure be better weather wise? Any other comments or tips about that route would also be appreciated. Anyone out there want to join me?

Gear Talk / Sandals

I have a wide foot and formerly used MTB shoes (with SPD cleats). After a few hours, my feet would ache. Not anymore. I have recently switched to the Shimano sandals (SH-SD65S, reg $79 on sale at colorado for $55), and I a very pleased with them. The cleats are sold separately. I wear an 8 1/2 shoe, so had to decide between a size 41/42 or a 43/44. The smaller size was too snug. The larger size works just fine. Go here for more discussions about sandals:

Routes / CycleAmerica coast to coast?

I am thinking about signing up with Cycle America for this summer's coast to coast trip. Comments from past riders (routes, food, support, daily distances/elevation gains, etc.) would be appreciated.
