CycleAmerica coast to coast?
« on: January 07, 2004, 03:20:04 pm »
I am thinking about signing up with Cycle America for this summer's coast to coast trip. Comments from past riders (routes, food, support, daily distances/elevation gains, etc.) would be appreciated.

Just go for it youll be fine....let the road lead you, be flexable,and be team commited.
I didnt ride with a group; we seen them on the trail and everyone was happy...

its about the ride.. Its about the best Pie....

The best advise I could give anyone is to

"Ride Home"...

Don quixote -

It is a good way to go.  I staffed with CA in 2003 and had a good time.  The route is well planned to avoid major roads and see as much of America as possible.  The meals are great.  The camping and overnights are in good locations.

There are some challenging days - especially during the first week.  All manageable though as they have a good SAG system should you need a ride.  I encourage you to have a bike with a triple chain ring for some of the climbs (Stevens Pass, Teton Pass, and the east coast climbs).  They have mechanics on the tour who can keep your bike in good shape and order parts as necessary.

Fun way to see the country and very customer oriented (at least when I was on tour).

Good Luck and holler if you need more info.
