So me and my buddy are in the early stages of planning a bike ride from New York City to New Orleans this summer. We have given ourselves around 23 days (give or take) to do this ride and I looked into amtrak tickets to get back which were pretty reasonable (130 bucks!(but it will take 30 hours)). Is this feasible or are we just nuts? We have decided we don't want to go with a group or any organization because it would take away from the freedom of just 2 guys and the road. We are planning on putting cargo racks on our road bikes and taking a 2 person tent. Hopefully we can sleep at as many camp sites as possible. How far do you think we can get in an average day? Is this realistic? What do you you think we need to do to prepare? Routs? Anyone have experience/stories to tell? Anything that might help would be great.
