Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania
« on: August 08, 2016, 11:41:11 am »
This my 1st solo Bike Touring Trip

I also have plans of a 1st solo Bike Touring Trip of the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania on 5-4-2017 on Amtrak train from LA, CA to Syracuse, NY then ride to Scranton, PA to Start a loop of the Pocono Mountains and North Western New Jersey...

Anyone have any tips on miles on a bike? and I was looking at 20 to 50mila a day and I am doing Stealth Camping on my Trip and on my route I see no Warmshowers.org host and I will be doing Stealth Camping on my Route of the Pococo Mountains and North Western New Jesery. and Should I use Platform Pedals? and I am going to walk the hills to rest my legs. or I am going to use my Shimano M545 DH SPD Platform pedals with Shimano SH-56 cleats on Teva Pivot DH SPD shoes

I have done 20 miles a day in San Diego, CA doing Stealth Bike Camping and I have shakedown trip from Riverside, CA via Indio, CA to Niland, CA(Slab City) on 12-2016

Tell us more, please? Not knowing much about you, it's hard to respond. If you're an 80-year-old, who only now decided he'd like to go on a bike ride, 20 miles might be right. But that's only a couple or 3 hours worth of pedaling even at a leisurely pace.
