Shaun:
Thanks for doing this. Also, if you look at the previous post there's an attachment called "Detour around Chester Bridge.pdf." It shows the Great Rivers South map panels you need to get around Chester.

Since he would be carrying minimal gear, if he keep the days reasonable and doable, he should be able to complete each day, even with a headwind.
I don't think the OP is concerned her husband won't be capable of completing a planned day but is concerned about an accident or serious bike breakdown that strands him.  She wants to be able to find him somewhere along the route if something like that happens.

The related good news is that in this case the article says that it was the conclusion reached by the researchers, not that of the interviewees.
True but the intervieweees answered the questions posed to them and, I expect, said what they thought the interviewers wanted to hear.  Everybody is in favor of proper eating, routine exercise, and generally healthy living but how many actually do it?

The problem with these "studies" is that nearly everyone they interview will agree it's a good idea but most won't actually do it.  They will also agree that healthy eating is a good idea but it doesn't keep them out of McDonalds.

Not sure why you were banned, but a good start would be to read and follow the Rules and Etiquette post.

Routes / Your thoughts on a New York Bike Route 9 tour?
« Last post by Bill56 on June 16, 2019, 10:23:44 pm »
I'm planning a tour this summer, 6-7 days, from the Canadian-New York border to Manhattan, hugging eastern New York along State Bicycle Route 9.

I'd be very interested in your thoughts about specific areas of interest along the route, places to stay, where to linger and where to move through quickly.

As others had mentioned, a satellite based tracker would be a good idea.  To keep my honey happy when I do remote touring (forest roads with no one around), I use an InReach tracker.  A tad expensive but it is very accurate and lets you do custom messages (with a 10-15 minute delay sometimes).
However, if he is following the route, I would think he would not need it the tracker unless he is taking on big days, i.e. 100 miles.  Since he would be carrying minimal gear, if he keep the days reasonable and doable, he should be able to complete each day, even with a headwind.
Regardless, have a great trip!  Tailwinds, John

I created a RWGPS route that uses the Great Rivers South route to get around Chester. Any feedback?
