Name Cycle across America at a leisurely pace 2013

Hi, my name is Shaf and I plan to cycle across America this summer. The idea is to go at a leisurely pace and enjoy the sights, kind of a road trip but on a bike.

I would prefer to stay in Motels where budget allows but am also quite happy to camp.

A basic level of fitness is required but from all the accounts that I have read online - if your not a regular cyclist you will get used to the daily ride. First two weeks might be tough though.

About me: I work as a pushbike courier in London and am looking forward to an easy going ride with lots of beautiful scenery on quiet roads and am more than happy to ride with all levels of ability.

General Info: The TransAmerica Trail - was established for Adventure Cycling's celebration of the U.S. bicentennial in 1976. This is still the greatest and most used route crossing America. This classic ride offers everything you would expect from a transcontinental crossing. You'll encounter all kinds of scenery and terrain, including ocean coastline, lush forests, high desert, mountain passes, snow-capped peaks, sweeping vistas, expansive plains, fertile farmlands, rolling hills, and wide rivers. We'll pass through small, out-of-the-way towns in America that still serve up some of the best home-cooked meals and fresh-baked pies.

How long: factor in two months
