I'm planning a several months cycle trip. I live in B.C. Canada, my idea is to fly to Phoenix maybe in March, cycle around the warmer parts of Arizona for a month or so, then make my way up north of LA to cycle up the Pacific Coast back to Vancouver. I probably like to be back middle to end of May, so that I have time to fly to Halifax and cycle from there to Toronto, where I attend a Tai Chi workshop on August 8th. I'm still trying to figure out the best direction to cycle the Pacific Coast( I considered to start later in April-May and cycle down the coast to San Francisco, then fly to Halifax, that would mean as I've heard, I might have a better chance for having the wind in my back and also I would cycle on the right side of the road, considering, that the view is on the right)So if anyone has some thoughts about this, I'm open for suggestions. thanks!
I cycled twice in Australia, 3 and 5 month( Cairns to Cooktown and back through the outback, and Tasmania)and twice in NZ (5 and 8 months top to bottom), a lot of it by myself. On this trip though I would like to have someone join me either for the whole trip, or even if you have only a couple of weeks and would like to join me for some time, that would be great too.
I live on a hilly island and am riding several times a week to get to town, so I'm relatively fit, but any man can outride me I guess. Usually I cycle 60-80km depending on terrain sometimes more or less. So I'm looking to share the ride with someone, who appreciates the shared adventures even though he/she might have to wait occasionally on the top of a hill. Just having fun and enjoying the scenery, company and new impressions.
