Lufthansa will take me and my bike to Boston on 5th of june. My return-flight will depart from Miami – mid of octobre (2018).
For the case that I reach the pacific-coast in a good physical and mental condition, with hunger for a lot more miles, and experiencing a mild autumn I want to keep the possibility to just turn around and go back east through the southern states. The final miles to Miami could be done with a Greyhound bus.
One good website for route-planning is offered by the “Adventure Cycling Association”. They offer detailed route-maps as well as an excellent overview about their already elaborated bicycle-trails across the U.S.
My plan is to combine the northern routes (“Chicago to New York City Route”, “Northern Tier”, “Lewis and Clark Trail”) westward. Once I reach the pacific-coast in Oregon I head south along the coast for San Diego. If possible I will take the “Southern Tier” from there which will bring me to Florida. Google says that the whole distance would be at least 7,500 miles or 12,000 kilometers – Yeeehaa!
