  My Tour: Southern Tier 200?

Originally I had planned to make this trip during the Spring of 2006.  However as with life things change.  I haven't changed the fact that I still want to do this route.  The only thing that has changed is that I am still doing too many other things right now in my life to get away for 2 months to do this trip.  I still hope to do this trip but it will be a few more years before it happens.

Meanwhile I will still continue to gather information, facts, tidbits, and more about the route and place it here in case others are looking for the same thing.

The Southern Tier Maps from Adventure Cycling Association: It's 3,159 miles and 7 maps, just you and the road. This is the place to go for the best maps to help you make it on your journey across the country. Many have used them and will agree donít leave home without these.

Southern Tier Journals: The first thing I did when I decided to try this route was go to the book store.  They had nothing.  So I went back out to the Internet and found a gold mine.  Take a look at what I found.

My own Southern Tier FAQ: The who, what, why, where, and when.
