Darren Alff's 2003 East Coast Bicycle Tour
For my third long distance bike tour, I set my sights on the east coast of the United States... an area that this southern California native was completely unfamiliar with. Riding from Raleigh, North Carolina to Portland, Maine took 45 days to complete. In that time I met a vast array of kindhearted people, saw a number of small and large cities, and had enough experiences to last a lifetime. This tour ended up being my favorite tour ever! To view the photos and description of this tour, check out my website at http://www.bicycletouringpro.com/articles/2003tour-nc2me.htm. If you want advice planning your tour, please contact me. I'd be more than happy to help! (Darren Alff, Jul, 2003)

No Way So Hey
Irma had hit the keys hard. Jose was coming. I decided that I'd ride to Key West anyway. When my son was a toddler he'd say No Way So Hey (instead of Jose), so that's what I named the tour. (Search my blog site for "No Way So Hey" and you'll find my tale.) I rode alone and unsupported. (John Pickett, Sep, 2017)

From Boston to Bar Harbor
The East Coast is not as easy to ride as it seems to be. The coastal road is pretty busy, the back roads are not very exciting. Most parts of the coast are private ground. There are some very steep climbs. So – getting the nuggets (there are plenty of them) is hard work ;-) (Gerhard Illig, Aug, 2014)
