Hi, I'm new to this place and I'm really glad that I found something like this. There seems to be many experienced travellers and thats why I want to ask you for your oppinion.
I would like to go on tour across US, coast to coast this summer (Jul-Aug). I'm not familliar with North America at all (I'm from Czech Rep.) so I decided to find a route that has been ridden by other people before. The best I could find was TransAmerica ACA route (OR->VA)
My question is: Would you suggest any alternatives, modifications, detours, etc. to the default route? My biggest interest is to see the most of the US, especially the nature (I'm not a "history/museum" type of guy, exceptions apply ).
I prefer roads and bike trails, planning to make it as low-cost as possible (camping, cooking, etc.)
I have done one smaller trip around Europe before (cca 3500km) and for navigation I used only my outdoor GPS with prepared routes (no paper maps, just some rather rough ones as a backup) so I guess I will do it the same way.
Also, other suggestions, tips and ideas are very welcome
