Thank you Dave S and Jamawani

I have been talking to some friends about doing a trip along this route next August, hopefully it wont be unbearably hot or cold. Another concern is Covid 19 an camping locations being open, from my understanding none of the Yellowstone campgrounds are unavailable this year due to covid.

I understand I was just throwing it in that I have heard of it also incase I took a route with limited sleeping locations. Thank you for the input though, always appreciated.

Thank you all for your responses. I have done short trips but my dream is to do a long one. I would one day love to do coast to coast but i sadly don't have that type of time. Although my path or even destination might change my training is not =). It might sound crazy but after everything i have been through I kinda feel I have to do this for myself. I was slightly worried about finding places to stay, I have heard of stealth camping but after reading some of these responses I am less worried. I have a majority of the equipment but I haven't decided if I'm doing panniers or trailer. I'm super excited to do this trip an excited to see the blue grass(boise states football field). Again thank you all for your wonderful responses an information. I will look at all routes an try to find what best suits my goal.


Routes / Illinois to Idaho

First post here

I have always dreamed of doing long distance cycling an I was training a few years ago when I got hurt at work an needed spinal surgery. Three years later an a lot of physical therapy, I'm back.
I plan on taking a trip from Dana, Illinois(dinky little farm town) to Boise, Idaho in late summer/early fall 2021. I am currently training on a treadmill, exercise bike an road bike. The thing I am mostly struggling with is finding a good path. I have looked through several maps but I can't seem to find a direct bike friendly way without going far out of my way. I don't mind riding on rural roads as long as the traffic isn't terrible. I plan on riding around 60 miles per day. I want to ensure i can find a campground or hotel as well as places i can buy water or refill bottles. I understanding finding everything i want wont always be 60 miles or exactly like i want it. Any help would be amazing. I really would love to see Boise but if anyone can recommend other beautiful places around the same distance(1600-2000 miles) i'm open to hearing ideas as well =).
