I am going on a cross country tour soon, and I would like to know what the best app is to show my route. I would prefer if I could use it Offline, so it doesnt use up a bunch of my phone's battery. I just want something basic that shows my route....It doesnt need to be fancy.

Much love.

I am going to be in some cold weather next month, and I was wondering what you guys wear under your pants to keep your legs warm?????

I will be cycling the western express the first week of April. So I will be riding through the Sierras, then across Nevada, then Utah and Colorado. What kind of gloves do you guys recommend???

I am going to be riding through Utah and Colorado in April. What type of cycling gloves do you guys recommend for this? I don't want to wear the lobster type though.....

Much Love!

I am planning on riding the Western Express in late March, and I'm sure there will still be a good amount of snow in the Sierras. Is it possible to ride on the shoulder? Or do you have to ride on the road because the shoulder is filled with snow???

What's up guys. I want to ride from Monterey, Ca east to Yosemite, and then over Lake Tahoe and onto highway 50 in Nevada. Do you guys think that the roads will be open in the middle of March? Or will there still be too much snow???

If you guys don't think that is possible, what about riding through SF and along the Western Express to US 50???

General Discussion / Michelin Maps or Google Maps for Europe?
« on: April 13, 2016, 05:52:44 pm »
Why do some people prefer the Michelin maps for Europe, when you can just use Google Maps? I purchased the Michelin maps and I don't see why they are better? Maybe I am missing something....I would love to hear your guys' opinion.

What did you have to do to your bike in order to fit it in the box?

Take off the pedals, turn the handlebars etc....????

Also, what airline did you use?????

How did you find camping? Was there a lot of campgrounds?

I am going to be biking from Norway to Switzerland this summer. Does anybody know of a route that will take me through the most scenic fjords in Norway? I have looked at Eurovelo but it doesn't say which route has the best fjords.

If you were riding SOLO, did you ever get lonely? Was there any point in the tour that was mentally difficult to handle because of isolation??

Routes / Wild camping along US Highway 50 in Nevada

Will there be chill spots to wild camp along this route? I don't like paying for camping, and it is more of an adventure when I am wild camping.

Gear Talk / Lookin for rain poncho
« on: November 27, 2015, 06:55:59 am »
I did a cross-country tour last year, and even though my jacket was "water proof", I still got soaked a bunch of times. Can anybody recommend a good poncho for riding in the rain????
