You might want to consider the Great American rail trail. It extends 3,700 miles from Washington DC to Coastal state of washington. How about 2,000 miles are dedicated bike paths with no motor vehicle traffic whatsoever. Because it follows old railroad track right of ways it is comparatively level. If you were to start in Washington you could go about half way. that would be comparatively level. That would save you from these hellacious climbs. The Western end of the Great American rail trail is largely highways where the trail has not been built in yet.
