    Since no replies, I'll recommend you look at crazyguyonabike. How about this diary?

    You should do it. Three years ago I was planning Phoenix to Nicaragua, and changed it to Phoenix to Maine to Phoenix and finally ended up doing NYC to LA instead. I have friends who own land in Nicaragua and they continually tell me that visiting the area is a must; there's no place like it. Living is cheap, food is amazing, people are friendly. I'm currently planning to find my way down there eventually, but north I must go first.

    I'm considering a trip from California to Guatemala. There's an organization in Guatemala called Mayapedal that is a frequent destination for touring cyclists. Check out CGOAB. One journal I particularly remember was called 'Bici and the Bee' These journals should have tons of info.

    Have fun in Nicaragua, I did some humanitarian stuff near Jinotepe and really loved the people and land.

    Any specific info you are looking for? We are now down in Ecuador after cycling all of Central America and Mexico. It is very, very doable and a great experience! Be sure to plan lots of time for Mexico - it's a great country to explore!
    WE DID IT! Our little family of four cycled 17,300 miles from Alaska to Argentina! The trip of a lifetime for sure. www.familyonbikes.org
