Default Coast to Coast, July 2 - Aug 9, plus RAGBRAI, want to Join Us?

Hello to anyone who may be interested in a limited support coast to
coast bicycle ride. I am inviting you to join me. I知 setting off on
a coast to coast bicycling journey this coming summer. I知 riding
with two friends from the San Francisco Bay area to Yorktown, Virginia
following Adventure Cycling Association (ACA) maps. The Western
Express route to Pueblo then the Transamerica map. We are between 45-
years of age and 54, two men, one woman. We also have one set of
retired parents driving a support van for us. We are not partiers but
do have an occasional alcoholic beverage. We feel we are fun loving
people. We池e planning our departure date to be July 2nd.

We will dip our rear wheels in the Pacific Ocean, probably Santa Cruz
or near San Gregorio, CA. We値l dip our front wheels in the
Atlantic. We plan to take a detour from the route in Kansas to go up
and ride RAGBRAI to the Mississippi River then ride back south to
rejoin our route somewhere below St. Louis. We would like to have at
least a dozen companions to help us defray the cost of our drivers,
support vehicle, and fuel. I知 thinking the cost will be around $800
apiece. We have recreational/race type bikes, we do not want to carry
anything on them.

We expect to take around 37 to 39 days in total so it means we値l be
on the move for an average 130 plus miles per days. We do expect
we値l take one day off per week for rest and laundry, or sightseeing,
probably every seven or eight days. I expect most of us will fly home
so we will pre-arrange our flights and plan the trip accordingly.

All food will be on your own; however there should be room in the van
for small coolers and a Coleman stove. Of course room for duffle bags
and camp chairs too. The ACA maps have details needed to find food
and services along the way.

The following links well get you to the maps we'll be using so you can
get a general idea of the route

That sounds like so much fun, but I don't get that much leave.

I'll look for all y'all during RAGBRAI tho.

I sure hope people aren't getting laid off from their jobs. But if
you do, what the hell, why not go on a bike ride. We'll carry your
gear, all you have to do is ride. This should be a good summer for
it.
