TOTAL DISTANCE: 700 - 799 miles
AVERAGE DAILY DISTANCE: 60 - 69 miles
TERRAIN: Country Lanes
ACCOMMODATION: Camping | Warmshowers
STARTING POINT ADDRESS: Yorktown, VA
DESCRIPTION: Planning on cycling unsupported Trans Am East to West, but don’t have the 90 days to do it all! So I am hoping to complete it in stages over a 6 year period; each year doing about 700 miles, or two (2) of the Adventure Cycling Organization's trip maps!! For 2017, using Maps 12 & 13, I am looking at starting in Yorktown, VA and finishing in Berea, KY for about 743 miles.
I did a 4,200 mile bike trip in 1984 to get from VA to the '84 Olympics and more recently in 2016, cycled from Chicago to Seattle (mostly on Northern Tier) with my wife as SAG driver.
I am a 62-year old, male, retired aquatic biologist. Thinking about leaving 8th June and cycling between 60 to 70 miles/day. Camping & Hot Showers preferable, but flexible on most fronts.
Happy to have some company (any stripe of the human variety is fine with me) for my stage and/or to start off your cross-country TransAm adventure! Happy trails!
