My name is Liz and I'm a senior at Saint Josephs University in Philadelphia. I was hoping to get some information from the biking experts. My story is this.... I've been mountain biking for a few years but after graduation (next May) I am planning on biking from Philadelphia to Texas with a few friends. I need some advice on a decent roadbike ...something a poor college student can handle, as well as roads to take and any other advice anyone may have. Thanks so much!
