I believe I heard from one person whose wife had ridden clear across the country once. Has anyone ever thought of attempting that long of a bike trip? Would you camp out in a tent along the way if you did, or stay in a hotel/motel? I've seen cyclists who have storage units attached to little trailers on the backs of their bikes... so I think they are 'long haul' riders. I imagine that they carry changes of clothing, food, drinks, maps... stuff like that perhaps. Would you do it? Would you want to be out there in all types of weather for months on end, fixing your bike at the side of the road, visiting road-side rest stops or restaurants? Would you want to have to search for places to stay overnight? Would you travel in small, or large groups? It's a very tantalizing idea. I find the life of long haul truckers quite interesting, so naturally I'm also fascinated by the idea of cross-country cycling as well. I'm in no shape at this moment to consider it myself but many of you are physically fit enough. Would you do it?
