I'm going to be biking from Jacksonville to NYC in just a few weeks. We were originally planning on following the ADV Cycling atlantic coast route, but are open to other suggestions. I also got a GPS for the trip which I've never used before. So I have a few questions:
1) Has anyone ever done this route, and if so, how is it in general? does it steer clear of heavy trafficked areas?
2) Should I purchase the ADV maps? will the GPS waypoint info be enough? Maybe the GPS combined with a regular AAA map will suffice?
