Transamerica trip
« on: July 05, 2022, 06:06:55 pm »
Hello everyone,
I’ll be starting out on the transamerica route this afternoon from Portland, OR. I already went over to the coast and back, I’m planning on making my way down to Eugene and picking up the established route there and seeing if I can’t make it to Virginia by September! If anyone else is headed the same way and wants to ride together for a while please let me know, I’d love some company. I’m a 27 year old dude, this is my first bike tour but I’m in decent shape and hoping to set a healthy pace. Hope to see you out there!

I would not be going on a trip like that with you, but I wish you the best of luck. At your age you should go across that trail like a breeze. They say the TA is America's premier bicycling route. I think the Pacific coast route is the premiere, and if it were not for all the traffic in summertime I suppose that might be true. There are many journals and videos online by people who did the TA. They all had a great time. Nothing is perfect and sometimes things don't go the way you want. It should be a great ride. I think you should post here occasionally and let people know how it is going.

Hey Andrew, are you planning on video taping your trip and downloading them onto YouTube? I have been binge watching a few people do it (Redeeming Eden, Al and his buddies and then Sarah Dickey and her group). I absolutely am hooked on watching their trip.
If not, I hope you have a great time and safe travels.

Hi Andrew

How was your trip West to East ??? I am a Cancer survivor and plan to do this -- I need any advice I can get -- planning camping and pulling a single-wheel cargo trailer -- your advise and guidance is appreciated
