    Lewis & Clark - How Long?

    I'm intrigued by ACA's Lewis and Clark route. I'd like to ride it, but it looks like it would take a long time to complete. If I had 2 months to devote to the tour, how far do you think I could get? I'd like to ride east to west. If there isn't time for the whole thing, where would you recommend I start? (Which is the best part?) I think my daily mileage is about average for a fully-loaded tourer. If it helps, I averaged about 55 miles per day when I rode down the hilly west coast of the U.S.

    Thanks!

    Go here and read how long it takes others. http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/c...octype=journal

    This place is a great resource for touring. The link above is just for the Lewis and Clark ride. You can also contact the riders by email for more info.
    Hope this helps.

    I choose the way to go, but the road won't set me free
