Boston to Washington State 2010
« on: September 05, 2009, 09:16:08 pm »
I'm new to the forum and I'm researching a tour for next year as noted in the subject line.  I'm a 53 year old male who needs a break from the rat race and have decided to fulfill a lifelong dream.  I'm an avid road biker and ride a Cannondale R1000, but I'm not sure this would be the ideal bike for this trip.  I'm in good shape and would likely feel comfortable riding 60 to 100 miles per day.  I need help to understand what would be the optimal equipment for this kind of adventure as I will be riding self-guided.  Thanks in advance for your help.

Go to the Adventure Cycling website. All the information you want is in there. You can then ask specific questions here and get lots of opinions.

Wow,  just want to say, I live in Boston and would like to log some miles on a 10-15 day trip next spring/summer.  Please contact me if you want a ride buddy.  I am reliable and I've travelled all over Europe (no 3rd world) biking solo.  thanks and happy trails
