I live in Boulder, CO and I plan to drive home in a few months, stay in CT all Winter, and then leave my car there and BIKE back to Boulder. I'm so sick of my car and it's just unnecessary, so I'm kicking the habit, and I figure that biking cross-country is a good way to kick off my car-free life. Problem is that I want to leave in late Winter or Early Spring, a time when it's still pretty freekin cold out, at least in CT and CO. I'm thinking that maybe I'll just head south immediately and hug the coast and then head west when I'm south enough for comfortable riding. Id stay at that latitude for the whole trip until I make a northward trek at the end straight up into Boulder. I just wonder how far south I'll need to go. It would suck to have to use fat tires and bring lots of layers to keep warm. I'd rather be light and free, but I don't want to hang out in CT longer than I need to. Any advice?
