I am planning to bicycle with a friend from Tuscaloosa, AL to Key West, FL and then back to Tuscaloosa. This starts in January and we plan to get back to Tuscaloosa around the middle of March. We have always wanted to see the country down there and neither of us have never been past Orlando. Also, FL in the winter time ain't too cold.
Then, we plan to hang out for maybe a few days or a week and then bicycle to Bellingham, WA. Do you think we can feasibly make it there leaving in late March and getting there by late June? If so, should we take the southern route and hit the west coast and take the 101 up the coast or should we just do the diagonal?
