    The pepper spray I'm bringing for dogs will be the same pepper spray I use on people if I have to , but I don't expect to have to.

    Think about it this way--a lot of crime is because of an easy...

    I have a friend in Walla Walla I'd like to visit, and if I'm dealing with strong headwinds as mentioned above, a hot meal will be most welcome :D

    And I don't mind adding a week or more to the...

    One thing of note that people have mentioned--I just bought a Novara Randonee and you CAN'T get take-off credits for components you want. All their bikes are SKU'd so you have to buy the complete...

    This is all fantastic information. Definitely a point for posting in the Regional forums vs. the regular Touring forum!! Manhattan is certainly not "necessary" for me...I was going to visit a girl,...

    Hey all, I'm going to be biking cross country in April (ahh so close) and I'm just looking for some input about route options.

    I'll be starting in Bar Harbor, and heading straight towards...

    I like bar end shifters, actually. I got used to them on my Cross Check and like how they feel on the Randonee.

    Also, here's an update, done a little work to 'er (added fenders, swapped rack, new...

    Yeah, I figured if I'm going coast to coast I may as well start on the East East coast. I would really like to start in Bar Harbor because of Acadia national park, but is it even going to be...

    How was ti to load your gear and such onto the bus? Any hassle? Did you have a lot of stuff?

    Ok guys, I'm back to necro my old thread as the date is getting closer and I really need to get details down. Still working on the "getting out there" part.

    I am wearing cycling shorts, but you're all probably right about the fit issue. Seems like 90% of the time, it's a fit issue :) It was definitely more of the precisely-placed-mallet type of pain,...
  14. serious "man pain" near the end of a long ride (may be tmi)

    This Sunday I took a long-for-me (88mi) trip along the I&M canal in Illinois. I was exhausted by the end, but probably could have pressed on farther if it weren't for strong testicular pain I was...

    I just took a long ride this weekend and dealt with a lot of negative thoughts near the last half, especially since over 50 miles of it wasn't a trail so much as a glorified, overgrown gravel...

    I was planning on doing a fair amount of stealth camping and warmshowers! Do you know what the stealth camp situation looks like around there?

    I know I need to get to VA to meet up with a buddy, and was planning on doing most if not all of the Blue Ridge Parkway from there. that seems like the kind of ride I shouldn't miss on this trip!

    Do people who stuff their clothes into sacks have tips on how to keep it from turning into a lumpy rock? Mine compresses down to a solid mass of hard cloth by the time I fall asleep, and I keep...

    It also saves about 9 bucks, haha! Fedexxing my stuff seems like it'd add another fairly large cost on top of the rest of the trip, unless there's something I don't know.

    My heart's pretty set on it! Something about the West coast makes it seem more like a destination than a starting point. The East coast is nice, it just doesn't have all the years of history and...

    That's fantastic news, OldZephyr. Thanks so much for this information.



    With how simple this is, and considering that the itinerary I posted has me going to Boston anyway, it seems silly that...

    I'm going to check into this. What happens if I get to the bus and can't get the bike on, though?

    *edit*

    I did some editing to the first post of the thread as it was kind of all over the place.

    No, not at all--I think I misunderstood the route. My original intention was to go as far West in PA as Pittsburgh, but now I'm sticking to the Atlantic Coast ACA route through it. That's what I...
