General Discussion / First tour, No Experience

We are definitely not using any of the donations to cover expenses.

The reason why we picked the Pacfic Coast is because neither of us had any experience with riding a bike especially such a far distance. I guess we really just didn't want to set our goals too high.

Any input on this would be much appreciated.

Hey guys,

My husband and I are planning a trip next summer to ride along the entire California coastline.

Now, I know I must sound like an idiot for wanting to do this since we have no experience on bikes except for cruisers once in a while at the beach.

Here's my questions...

We are planning this trip to raise money for the International Justice Mission ( and we don't have a lot of money to spend on the bikes+gear.
What would be a decent used bike to look for that would be as cheap as possible.

What should we consider to be the most important when picking a bike.

What kind of training schedule should we start once we have the bikes? This trip is going to be 1200 miles in less than 3 weeks so I know I need short-term goals in order to accomplish the long-term goal of completing the trip.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
