TransAm ACA Tour East to West 2020, Where to Fly Into?
« on: August 26, 2019, 12:16:51 am »
I am signed up for the ACA Transam in 2020.  Trying to decide whether to fly into Newport News, and a short ride to Williamsburg, or fly into Norfolk, short trip to Virginia Beach, then a 75 mile ride to Williamsburg.  Either is fine with me, I'm good with the miles, but looking for advice from anyone who has done either of these pre-ride routes in the past.  I know from Norfolk, I would need to take the ferry to Jamestown on 31, but that is not an issue.  Thanks in advance!

I flew into Newport News. I shipped my bike ahead and got a ride into Yorktown. It was easy.

I also flew into Newport News, then took a short cab ride to Yorktown. Shipped my bike to the hotel and re-assembled it there.  That was in 2015, and I'm planning another E-W crossing on the Transam in 2020.  See www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/BuddyHall for details.  I'd suggest you read every day of my journal to see where I stayed, obstacles I encountered, suggestions, etc.
