I'm wondering if any of you have tips on how to plan the route - resources, past experience yourself, maybe websites of people who have done it before? Particular maps that are the best for the states? Thanks!

Braking the Cycle

I rode from DC to NYC at the end of last summer. It was a three day fully supporteed charity ride. I can look around, but I am not sure that I have the route sheets. I will see if I can get them from the ride.
