I’m thinking of biking across the country– NYC to LA! It should take less than 60 days and I plan to camp and/or sleep in motels along the way. I’m looking at the Transamerica route but its hard to tell if that is the best option to make the most of the trip. I am considering attempting to make my own route. Anyways, I would love to hear from anyone that has experience biking across the U.S. or knows of some good routes. Oh, and did I mention I’m planning to do the whole ride on a fixed gear bike! Leave your stories or ideas in the comments section below!
I also thought this quote from Ernest Hemingway was both fitting and rather inspiring for the trip.
“It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” Ernest Hemingway
