Hey all, this is my very first post. I am probably very inexperienced when it comes to actual bike touring. Last summer my friend and I covered the entire beach from Jacksonville, to Miami. We had no prolems at all and did the entire thing in 7days and taking one day almost completely off. But the problem is that we use beach cruisers as we are simply always on the beach because of where we live. So we dont think that beach cruisers would be a bright idea for htis long of a trip. So we need advice on what sort of bike we need being a moub=ntain bike or some sort of hybrid, and where is the best places to get them. But we are both trying to carefully plan a trip from north Florida to southern Maine. We plan to bike there and simply fly back. The MAIN thing we need though of course is a route. We got by by using the beach 90 percent of the time to Miami. But i think going that far of a distance there are so many breakers on the beach we would lose so much time. So anyone know where i can find an easy to follow direct route and how long it would take. We are both very athletic and figure we can cover about 60-70 miles a day, of course we are going to continue training. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
