In 2016 I toured TransAmerica from Yorktown to OR coast and turned south to San Francisco. BUT I had to bail out temporarily and then a few weeks later picked up the route in Chester, IN. So I am now planning on riding from Cherokee, NC on Blue Ridge Parkway to approx Charlottesville, VA and ride to Mississippi River...completing the portion I did not ride. Was thinking of being in Charlottesville around May 15. While my average is usually 60 miles per day and 350 per week, with a day off, there must be some flexibility to anything.
I'm 64 yr old male. Architect. This may be a retirement ride...though that was the case on two previous long tours also. Perhaps this time will stick.
