    Rad! Great adventure. You’re gonna love the US. We are 1000 miles into a cross country trek and it’s fantastic. Generous people, surprisingly good food and plenty of excellent scenery. Enjoy Australia and NZ!

      Thanks Dakota. Good food and friendly people are the exact things we were hoping for. Have a great trip!

    Is 2 months long enough to cycle from San Diego to Orlando ?

    Would love to cycle across (drove it once) and didn’t think the standard 3 month visa would be long enough!

      We have about 2.5 months. From memory, I think it’s about 2,500 miles or so, perhaps a bit more. 1,000 miles a month is about normal for us so we should be fine. To get an idea of how much other cyclists average per month, take a look at the Database of Long Distance Cyclists: http://www.thenextchallenge.org/LDCJ

    just saw the back cover of Cycle-thanks for wearing a helmet, not the standard ctc kit. i bicycled in a group from san diego to jacksonville, fl., which is is on the ocean; orlando isn’t 2760 miles, 5 weeks. i don’t know how we wold have made it across the desert without support vehicles to keep us hydrated. surreal. we averaged 78 miles a day, and you could ride alll day, and if you wren’t a botanist, wou’d think you hadn’t moved.my first tour was solo in england in 1975. as i look back, i’m astounded that i survived. two ears later i was solo touring behind the iron curtain. here’s to you both.

      Thanks for that Harvey and the reminder that Orlando us not actually on the coast though we will, of course, pedal to the sea first. Sounds like you’ve had some adventures!

      And yes, we always wear helmets.
