Thanks to all for the great advise, i completed the ride 1500 miles, my first trip ever and did it solo, unseported Seattle to san diego, in 25 days, pulling a Bob, 60 pounds, but based on sound advise changed my bike to a trek fuel 90, full suspension, for the required granny gears, i took out the rear shock and used a modified seat post, to replace it.Was a unbelivable trip. your infor helped me a ton, an myabe the 30 miles training wasnt enough. thanks and i promise to help anyone with questions re a trqailer vs gears or bike. ps not one puncture but a few cramps

With regards to headwinds cycling east to west across the United States, or west to east, there seem to be some conflicting opinions. However, when it comes to the Pacific coast bicycling route,you will find anyone who has cycled it in the north to south camp. Not that you cannot cycle it south to north over many many hills against a wall of very stiff resistance over substantial and determining distances, because you can, but the question would be---why? Not me anyway. If I ever do the Pacific coast again, it will most definitely be north to south.
