Thorn Nomad tour - Indiana to Washington DC mostly on trails
« on: December 14, 2016, 08:04:40 AM »
Hello Thornistas. A journal on my October tour to the USA is up now at crazyguy: http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/sydsride2016.

The tour was undertaken to complete a cross USA ride started by a friend before she was struck and killed by a drunk driver in Indiana a couple of years ago. Of the 1570km about 80% of the ride was on rail trails and canal paths. The cycling infrastructure in that part of the states was a very pleasant surprise. The GAP and C&O trails between Pittsburg and DC I already new about but there's a surprising network of off road cycleways all across Indiana and Ohio as well.
