Trans America - Oregon to Virginia
« on: January 28, 2023, 07:49:19 pm »
I am planning to do this in 2025

I am looking for any advice available --- my idea is pulling a single wheel cargo trailer -- mainly camp --- aiming 60 miles per day -- my dream is in its infancy --

There are tons of books and You tube videos on the subject. Google bicycle touring.  My favorite introduction is Raymond Bridge's, Bike Touring published by the Sierra Club books. Somewhat dated but still relevant and extremely informative. Probably more than you'll ever want to know.

You may want to read my friend's journal. It was East to West, but he pulled a BoB Ibex trailer. Good read with plenty of pictures. https://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/?o=3d2&doc_id=24120&v=Zk
