I am new to Warm Showers but word has it, this is an amazing community and I am excited to dive into it! A 10+ year bucket list item of riding across the US will finally happen this summer and late June/early July can't get here quick enough!! Two of us will be doing the ride, going extremely light (10 lbs or less), averaging 100 +/- miles per day, and staying to the north. I understand Route 2 goes across the entire country and seems relatively short @ 2500 miles.
1) Is Route 2 cycling "friendly" (wide shoulders/decent pavement/not too much traffic/etc)?
2) If this is not a good cycling route, can some other options be recommended? We would like to stay on paved roads for the entire trip.
3) How does one find available hosts on routes across the US?
Again, very new to this site and looking for some direction..
Thanks for listening and looking forward to hearing back from the community!
