TOTAL DISTANCE: 4000+ miles
AVERAGE DAILY DISTANCE: 60 - 69 miles
TERRAIN: Main Roads
STARTING POINT ADDRESS: Springfield, MA, USA
MEETING POINT: Probably in Forest Park, but I'd be very happy to meet people anywhere along the route.
ENDING POINT: Anaheim, CA, USA
DESCRIPTION: My goal is to cycle to California in time for Vidcon (YouTube/online video convention). So far I think I'd follow Adventure Cycling's Atlantic Coast route, Trans America Trail, Western Express route, and Pacific Coast route (in that order).
Start date is probably sometime in April, late March at the earliest, but that's still quite flexible.
I plan on camping and cooking my own food as often as possible.
I've gone on two bike trips before, neither of which demanded much more than 60 miles a day. I expect I'll do more than that on this trip, but I won't plan on it from the get-go.
If I could have cycling companions even for smaller sections of the trip that would be great.
