Classifieds / Wanted - Atlantic Coast Section 7 Map
« on: September 05, 2011, 11:52:18 pm »
Hello All,

I had previously purchased the Atlantic Coast section 7 map as part of a group of maps used for my cross country tour in 2009 (  I had some international cyclists stay with me earlier this year through and they had damaged their iPhone they were using as navigation so I loaned them my map.  They said they had sent it back several months ago but it hasn't arrived yet - I'm thinking they sent it to the wrong person.  I'm planning a tour with a friend from Fort Lauderdale to Key West and back in October and even though I did that trip last November and probably don't need a map for it, I would still like to have one.  I'm all for supporting Adventure Cycling but really can't afford a new map plus shipping charges right now (I just renewed my membership).  If anyone has one they no longer need I would greatly appreciate it.  We are leaving on October 9th 2011 so time is a bit short.  Please let me know asap.  Thank you in advance.

Gear Talk / Does anybody bring a cooler on the tour?
« on: April 15, 2009, 11:00:41 pm »
I'm curious if any bicycle tourists carry a small cooler on the bike for food and of course beer!  I'm debating about it myself - thoughts?

I'm doing a cross country ride starting April 25th and my proposed route is posted here (Mostly ACA Routes),-111.047058&spn=1.393762,2.304382&z=9

I'm visiting a sister in Lincoln NE and then heading to Pierre, SD.  Rather than backtrack to the ACA route, I was thinking of heading North from Lincoln on Hwy 79 until I get to the Cowboy Rail Trail, then following that trail until I can connect with the L&C route at Bonesteel, SD.  Has anyone ridden on the Cowboy trail?  It starts at Norfolk, NE.  Anyone have opninions for or against this proposed route between Lincoln, NE and Bonesteel, SD?

Thanks in advance!


Connecting ACA Routes / Pierre, SD to Yellowstone
« on: February 19, 2009, 10:52:00 pm »
I'm looking to connect L&C trail from Pierre, SD to Yellowstone and I need to go through Gillette, WY to visit my Sister.  I spoke with some good folks (the Shultz's) who took a similar route last year but they went into Montanna for a good portion of the ride.  I'm thinking of going from Belle Fourche, SD and basically take US 14 across the state of Wyoming.  Has anyone done this route that could offer some info or advice?

Thanks in advance for your help!


Connecting ACA Routes / Underground Railroad to Lewis and Clark

Does anyone know if their is a good route to connect Underground Railroad to Lewis and Clark?  Their isn't much distance between and perhaps ACA has a connector map but I haven't come across it yet.  I'll be riding Florida to Washington State this spring.  Thanks in advance!  Dennis

Classifieds / WANTED  Equipped tour bike to borrow, rent or buy

I am planning a cross country solo bike tour (Fort Lauderdale, FL to Seattle, WA) in May 2009.  I will be on a tight budget because I will be without an income for the 4 months it should take to complete the ride.  Im looking for a decent (not necessarily the best) tour bike that is equipped for a long distance tour (fenders, pannier bags, lights etc).  Ideally someone close to Fort Lauderdale who has recently done a tour might want to sell, rent or lend their bike for my training and ride.   If you own a bike of this type please contact me with your asking price and bike description via my e-mail address  Serious only please.
