Coast to Coast, July 2 - Aug 9, plus RAGBRAI, want to Join Us? Hello to anyone who may be interested in a limited supported 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 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 http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes/westernexpress.cfm http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes/transamerica.cfm If you壇 like more information please contact me at RBskiir@aol.com. -RB
