Cycling from Chicago to NYC, advice?
A friend and I are looking to ride from Chicago to NYC, we'll take any advice you have. Now I'm gonna take a second and explain our situation, our budget's pretty limited, we have around roughly 20 days to do it(bike there, take the train back) and we're fairly new to long distance cycling and such. We will be doing this in the summer and are looking for a budget bike we can carry all of our things on. We will be carrying quite a few things because we're going to avoid staying in motels and such and just camping out during the night.
