Has anyone cycled the entire ACA Atlantic Coast Route and posted a journal anywhere? I'm curious to read one about this tour as I plan my upcoming summer.

I've only done part of it (specifically New Paltz, NY to about Kittery, ME.) but a google of the route shows a few hits:
(and from the above link):

Didn't find anything else... It's a nice route with a few bumps along the way, but what tour doesn't have them? :)

An Adventure Cycling board member and his wife did the Atlantic Coast Route last fall on their tandem. You can read their blog here:

hi brad,
I rode part of this from NC to Charleston, SC in Oct 06. Just wanted to let you know that you can detour to enter historic Charleston from the east on a new bike/pedestrian friendly bridge on US 17/701 crossing the harbor. There is a great view as it is very high, with the WWII aircraft carrier Yorktown and other ships nearby.  The 2-lane rush hour traffic on SR 41 for several miles before getting to the 4-lane US 17/701 was not suited for a novice cyclist however. The naval museum is before you cross the bridge. I spent all day touring there. That was after I saw the USS North Carolina in Wilmington a few days earlier !
