A friend and I are planning vacations together. We want to ride for 3 weeks in the US in October. He is from New York and I am from France. As I am not familiar with riding in the US, more in Europe, I am looking for help to brainstorm ideas of places to discover to turn this into a fantastic adventure!
We would like to visit Indian reservations/Ghostowns/ National Parks and 150+ miles or interstates bike tracks.
We would like a dry and warm weather. We just want to avoid elevated & arid places, because we will travel with 60+ lbs at the back of our bikes. We plan to cover 40 to 60 miles a day
We are considering
the Natchez Tracen from Tennessee to Mississippi
the Great Allegheny Passage +Chesapeake & Ohio Canal Towpath from Pittsburgh to Washington D.C
Katy Trail in Missouri , West of Saint-Louis
We dismissed New Mexico because it was too rocky.
California and Texas would be options as well!
I am looking from advice from people who biked accross the US. Having a little less than a month in front of you, what would be your dream ride accross the US?
Thanks in advance for sharing!
Tom & Ben
