Would a "supporter" of this route be willing to take the time to compile this into a continuous coast to coast map route / proposal so it can be better understood?


I'll compile the daily segments into a continuous coast to coast map route. Google Maps only allows 10 stops in their routing, are there other worthy mapping programs that will allow a full stitch?

Annoying how limited Google Maps has become isn't it? I'm trying to plan our ride in the UK and keep running up against the "limit" of dragging routes and stops.

The route changed slightly so I started a new thread...

This or the Trinidad Memorial Lighthouse CA to Wrightsville Beach NC are longer than 2016 and with one fewer day to do it. The Trinidad Memorial Lighthouse CA to Wrightsville Beach NC route is 3775 miles, which equates to an average daily ride of 377 miles. Adding an extra day brings the average daily ride down to 343 miles per day and even that is at the upper limit for old rider and old scooter vibration tolerance. I certainly am in favor of taking 11 days for this distance regardless of the route.

Logistics will also come into play for Caliente NV with only 3 motels in town so setting a date/route sooner rather than later would be nice.

I think the route is beautiful and challenging. I will probably sign on for the event then ride as many days and the route that is selected (with just a few missed turns I'm sure). What I see is awesome! I will just follow the person in front of me and be happy if I can keep up.
