    I have about $1000 cash, a decent mountain bike, and other essentials, and i'm seriously thinking about bouncing on all my responsibilties in NYC and ruffing it for awhile. I wanna ride my bike from the east coast to the west. I am kinda serious about it. ha anyone have any ideas or susggesstions.

    I was just gonna take a plane somewhere and ruff it for awhile regardless, but I think by riding I'd experience alot more.

    switching gears makes the effort you put into pedaling more effecient

    You should post this in the thread called "bicicletas." They'd be able to help you out the most.

    My man and his lady took 30 days and bike from san fran to vermont. they accepted one ride from a trucker for a 100 miles out of the rockies in a storm. Its definatley doable. But right now is the worst time to go. Its retarded to ride across the us during the hottest part of the year, wait till september.

    BEST ADVICE EVER!

    Great idea by the way. You gonna camp out or hit up cheap hotels?

    This will require an insane amount of planning. Imagine how hard it is to find a good place to sleep in your own town for your budget/needs. Now multiply that by the fact you won't know anything about the towns and will be spending more than one night out.


    At least bring a digital camera. This is a great idea.
