My name is Ray, I am boston transplant and i ride urban routes, on a Schwin Cutter fixed gear High gear ratio.
I am currently plotting a cross country trip from boston to the Bay Area with a stop in Black Rock City for late august.
I was hoping that i could get some advice from the cycling community for...
- a touring bike to purchase or refurbish (im rather talented with mech work)
- routes (this will be my first cross country ride/out-of-state ride; my furthest ride was a 200mi in MA)
- recruiting other riders for the trip
- do's and don'ts
Planning the same trip but for next spring, Thinking of doing the south tour route and ending up in San Fran.. I will be going it alone cause I want to take my time.
Friend me on Facebook if you would like to keep in touch with ideas.
