Visit and go to the cycling page. Disclosure: I am a member of the group and edited that page. I have ridden 2 routes to Santiago Compostela.

Just got back from the Oregon section of the Sierra-Cascade route, finishing in Medford. My no-cooking strategy worked fine. Always, always have plenty of water, though.

I have given up cooking on my tours. I pack enough snacks for a couple of days, restocking as I go. Jerky, dried fruit, energy bars, and the like are fine for me. First thing after breaking camp, I eat a bit, then set out with plenty of water until I get to a spot where I can get a meal of some kind. A big lunch or dinner will get me through the afternoon and evening. This has worked well on the Pacific Coast from Olympia to Monterrey, the Olympic Peninsula, SR 20 from Mt Vernon to Metaline Falls, WA to Michigan, etc. In Alaska, a lodge served me a warm peanut butter and jelly sandwich with coffee for breakfast -- perfect, as it turned out. In Europe, my wife and I never cook in camp: breakfast is usually the challenge unless one finds a bakery next door to a bar/coffee spot.  Again, we have a supply of easy to carry snacks and make do until lunch.

Friends in recreation planning tell me that the Katy Trail in Missouri is at its best in October.
