I understood. In that case camping information will be missing. Anyways, I think your suggestion is valuable. Will try that. I was playing with google maps. but sill, ACA maps are great :)

Thanks for your link. I was wondering is there any map on North Star? I have'nt got any. I have done Trans Ame during 2012 and been to ACA HQ and featured in last years Calendar :)

Any help?

Hi there,

We are riding a tandem from Seattle and now at Campaign, IL. Planning to reach DC by 16th August. Is there any preferred route? If not camping is available that will also work.

I have started and well could come upto Othello in 4 Days. Last day was hard and we have got lost. We took Iron Horse Trail and some other small roads and very few miles on I90. Its going alright.

Thanks for both.

Yes I was googling and found a direction on google map from Seattle to Missoula. and other ACA map would have been great to follow but that will increase total riding days.

Still I will try be on ACA route/map.

Thanks again

Thank you for your suggestion. these are the maps i have (below). I will study more about your route. Since Missoula to Richmond will cover the most of TransAm, after that we can follow your suggestion too. But we will have time in between to work on that.

I am slow like, i can ride average 60-70 Miles a day on a flat land. But When I was crossing Bhutan, it was more like 25-30 miles a day since i had to climb total (9 ups+ 8 downs) 45000 ft in 11 days. if the road is flat its not impossible to get an average of 60-70 miles and that's my max. 

 1. Astoria, OR, to Coburg, OR
 2. Coburg, OR, to Baker City, OR
 3. Baker City, OR, to Missoula, MT
 4. Missoula, MT, to West Yellowstone, MT
 5. West Yellowstone, MT, to Rawlins, WY
 6. Rawlins, WY, to Pueblo, CO
 7. Pueblo, CO, to Alexander, KS
 8. Alexander, KS, to Girard, KS
 9. Girard, KS, to Murphysboro, IL
 10. Murphysboro, IL, to Berea, KY
 11. Berea, KY, to Christiansburg, VA
 12. Christiansburg, VA, to Yorktown, VA

Yes I think thats fine. I am not looking or thinking of booking any camp ground in advance. In fact i will be on shoe string, so i will try out lowest every time. I have no priorities to camp any particular location. Still it will help me to have a budget in mind. I did cross New Zealand and camped. Cost was varied from 5-15$ and i am expecting the same here.

I have 80+ days to complete the course. As I said I not a very hard rider and up hills are always hard for me.

Thanks for your information. Please advise/ suggest if you think that might help me.

Thank you so much for your replies.

Yes actually it is Trans American Trail. As i have mentioned before, I have a set of ACA map starting from Astoria but as I will start from Seattle, i was looking up some tips to be on the ACA route from Seattle. I am sure if i could go to Astoria, trip would have been great since every one suggested me the same.

I have a time constrains as I have a travel visa. So I was thinking if i could join somewhere on ACA map from Seattle that would have cut my time and cost as well.

I have seen camping ground pointed on the ACA map. But may i know how much that might cost for 2 persons (we are two, having a Bike Friday Tandem) ? I will have camping and cooking arrangements. Is there anything that i need to do like booking in advance?

Hi There,

This is Muntasir, writing for the first time here. I was planning to have a cross country across USA since last few years and finally I am here in NY to pack my stuff then to reach Seattle within next 12 days. I am just a bike enthusiast by nature and very slow on wheels as i am not really strong and I am from a country which is nearly 100% flat. So this is will be an opportunity to get to know about the route, weather and many more from all of you.

I have tried to read as much as i could and got the map from ACA. My plan is to start it from Seattle to DC. So it will be great to know how/which point will be my meet up point of TA map (as TA starts from Astoria and takes a different route). I tried but could not figure out. If any one could tell me the number of the ACA map (like TA is a set of 11 maps) or name of the route/point.

Mobile network and best mobile operator with Data service:
My ride will get along with a small research based of debris. I have developed a system (nothing but an Android app) to count number of debris (plastic  based) within my eye sight. My mobile will be connected with an website named . So i would need to have data service on my phone. Any suggestion regarding the network and provider (GSM)?

I will place more quarries since I am new comer and never ride such long in one go.

Looking forward to hear from you
