Come one come all!

Specifics need to be hammered out, but any east coast US matazonians, I am looking for cyclists! My desire is to bike the TransAmerican trail in the summer of 2009. The plan is to get to Astoria, Oregon before I start school again and greyhound it back east. I don't know if I'll be starting in Yorktown, Virginia or otherwise.

Right now I just want to make a rough plan, if anybody is feeling up to biking 4500 miles over a couple of months, let me know biggrin.gif

Que exita!

That could be a crazy challenge! I have a god-awful job this summer, so I can't at all commit to biking for two months, but I'd love to meet up with you if you start in Yorktown (as in NY, right?) and at least bike down to where I live (bout ten miles). There is a coffee place that makes bread with cheese baked into it and you bite it and you want to die but also to live forever. This is what my town is good at.

I'm on the west coast and a bit far north. Still - sounds like a great thing.

Are there Matazonians that will feed and lodge you as you travel? Will you be lodging with friends and family? Is this yet to be determined?

Yorktown, Virginia. That's the starting point of the TransAmerican trail.

It may happen that I'll cross paths with some Matazonians, but the main plan is to camp along the way. I'll have a bivy sack, sleeping bag, backpacking stove, etc. My goal is to have 50 pounds or less of equipment, but at the same time have everything I need.

That is a shame!

Hell, I'd cycle anywhere for some of that action. If I had a bike. And was any good with two-wheeled implements. And didn't mind camping. And lived in America.

Do they deliver?

Best of luck with the proposed trip - it sounds like a helluva trek, but no doubt you'll get a lot of satisfaction from it.

So I have to take summer classes - but - if the trip is towards the end of the summer I would be more than willing to join up with you at some point. I would love to do something like this, always wanted to.

It will be at the beginning of Summer very soon after second semester lets out. I need to get to Oregon a decent amount of time before class starts up again.
