Hi. I'm planning my first cycle touring adventure for late March into April. Shipping my bike from Salem, MA, USA to a friend in Stuart, Florida and pedaling alone across the state to Gulfport, about 220 miles. I plan on 4 days/3 nights travelling.
I'm a 59 year old aging hippie who gave up my car a year ago and ride 100 to 150 miles a week in good weather (50+ miles a week this winter). I would like route advice - Google maps has me going 1A to Vero Beach then Route 60 across the state. Anyone experienced with the area? I plan on rustic camping so any advice on campsites along the way is appreciated.
Also, if you are willing, I'd like to review my gear list, preparations, and plans with a seasoned rider.
