    Route advice- New Jersey to Seattle

    Hi there,

    I am planning a tour from Point Pleasant, NJ to Seattle, WA via Badlands and Yellowstone. So far I have not been able to find a route online (on e.g. mapmyride.com, bikely.com). Has anyone done it and would be willing to share? Or even give me advice for parts of the route, e.g. what is the best (with least amount of traffic...and hills...) way to get across PA?
    Thank you!

    This question probably belongs in the Touring forum.

    I have some general routes that might help - I did a sort of similar trip in the other direction a few years ago:

    www.adventurecycling.org prepares maps for touring cyclists - Northern Tier and Lewis and Clark Routes are possibilities for you. My route started on the Lewis & Clark and then veered off in Bozeman.

    www.crazyguyonbike.com is where tourists post their journals

    http://www.dot.state.pa.us/BIKE/WEB/tour_routes.htm - is a source for PA bike maps - most states have something similar. I used the A and S routes

    http://www.dot.state.wy.us/wydot/saf...strian_bicycle -- WY has great resources linked on this page

    Cool, thank you. That helps. Did you really bike along the highway (I-94) as it is shown on the map?

    You're welcome.

    RE: 94 -- Nope, I took a ride from Waterloo - visited the Trek factory where my bike was made -- to Milwaukee. I went to Mil. for a family visit, and needed to cut some time there to make it to a party on time. I also took a long ride from around the middle of South Dakota to Albert Lea, MN (Hwy 90), to avoid a few hundred miles of mind-numbing wind-blown flat-as-a-pancake prairie riding and again to help get to Mil. on time.
