New England in The Fall
After the regular successes of our forays to the West Coast, the East Coast in all its autumn glory. This journey takes you from the Canadian border to Philadelphia, all timed to enjoy the very best of the autumn colours.
Though everyone has heard of the incredible autumn colours of New England few have had the opportunity to spend real time experiencing this natural wonder. What better way take it all in than from the saddle of a bicycle?
Our trip starts close to the Canadian border in Bar Harbour, Maine and finishes on the outskirts of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania having covered some 730 miles and no fewer than 7 states. We will be mostly following the tried and tested ‘Atlantic Coast’ route published by the Adventure Cycling Association. However, this is far from being an exclusively coastal route and we will enjoy river valleys, mountains, parks and woodlands, as well as experiencing American life in towns of every shape and size.
This two week trip is suitable for all regular cyclists with an average of 56 miles per day and no extreme climbs. Each day you will be provided with maps and turn-by-turn instructions, though these will be in a different format to the famous Bike Adventures ‘yellow sheets’. For those with SatNav a .GPX file will be made available before departure.
Accommodation is in motels and hotels. Because accommodation in the US is generally sold ‘by the room’ we regret that our supplement for single occupancy is higher than for our European routes.
