Bike Trip this Summer? - Philly to Missouri
- A friend of mine is looking for a partner or more to bike from the Mid-Atlantic to the Midwest this summer. If this interests you or if you know someone equally crunchy who might appreciate the invitation, please be in touch with Rachel.
> I will be heading out from Philadelphia (or another nearby mid-Atlantic city) on June 27th (or thereabouts) with a plan to end up in Central Missouri by the end of July. The route would probably go through Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, southern Indiana, and southern Illinois before entering Missouri. That works out to a relatively "low-key" pace of 50/60 miles a day with at least one day a week for relaxation. I hope to also spend time doing sightseeing and hiking and visiting friends on the way. Sleeping would be camping or staying with people along the way, looking to spend a minimum of money and have a maximum of fun. All of the gear (tent, sleeping bag, camp stove, etc.) would be carried on the bike.
> Does this sound good to you? Because if it does...I want to travel with you! The only thing holding me back from this trip (and it's a big thing!) is finding someone to travel with. I'd love to travel with you for all or part of the trip. Let me know if you are interested so we can plan. If you can't do it, let me know if you have any friends that might be interested.
