Thanks for the link. Do you happen to use a trailer? I'm trying to decide if the trailer would be the best option for my recumbent. Since the front wheel is only 16", I think panniers wouldn't work that well.
Well, I'm a junior in high school, and I don't think I could take off 4 months before college starts, and I wouldn't be prepared for this summer. I'm not sure how to choose a route. Do you ride down major highways? or use backroads? I'd rather find someone who has done it, and follow them as a basis. When you did it, did you ride alone?
Denise's advice about crazyguyonabike is spot on. There are almost as many journals on their by recumbent riders doing trans-Ams and similar rides. You might have to sift through some good (and not-so-good) stories, but for you it will be an unsurpassed resource on recumbents, trailers, camping gear and locations,riding styles, abilities, route planning, challenges, achievements, and everything in between.
I'm a junior in high school and I live in Georgia too. This summer I will be going to the to the Pacific Ocean.
I'll be going alone because my friends aren't as crazy as I am. But I just think they're missing out. I always try to use the backroads.
Well, this summer's definitely out of question, although riding half-way is a cool idea. My summers are always full, but next summer, my senior summer, I wanted to do something awesome, so I was wondering about it.
