I have been reading this Forum for a while and have a dream to Cycle down the East Coast of America. My intention is to travel light and aim for at least a 100 miles a day. I am looking to follow the coast as closely as posiible and aiming for May 2011. The reason for the post is to seek advice as which way to go [prevailing winds] and also to get any information possible from anyone one who has ridden this before.
My aim this year is to build up the miles lose some weight and to increase my average speed from 17 Mph on my last 100 so that i can max the milage each day andcomplete the ride in well under 3 weeks. I am also going to try and raise some money for a good cause!
I dont know why i want to cycle this route but it appeals more than riding across the USA.
Hi, I'm graduating college in NYC on May 18th. I'm planning on biking down to Miami, where I'm moving to. I'll probably leave NYC around May 22nd. It would be cool to do the trip with someone, or a group. Get in touch with me if you want to talk about it.
