Actually the current "hard times" is what got me started touring. Although I invested a good deal of money in my bike and gear its way cheaper then a car. I'm currently unemployed and am going to spend the next year or so touring the country.

John......Did not make this trip yet but am leaving Cape May New Jersey Sept 20th. on Cape May/Lewes ferry  to Delaware then Biking to Chrisfield Maryland. Picking up the Tangier Island ferry to Reedville Virginia. Then on to the Roanoke area via the transam bike route.   Cape May lewes ferry-1-800-643-3779
                                   Tangier Island ferry-410-968-2338
Hope this helps, let me know if you need any more info.......Mark

Routes / Virginia routing help.........

Hello all...........Late September I am touring from southern new Jersey to Roanoke Va. I am going to take ferries across the Deleware and Chesapeake bays and land in Reedville Va. From there I want to head to Richmond area and hook up with the transam trail. My only concern is crossing the Rappahannock river. Is anyone familiar with route 360 and the Tappahannock bridge? Just wondering what conditions are and if crossing the bridge on bicycle will be a problem. Trip should be clear sailing once I cross this river. Thanks in advance.
