Top U.S. Long-Distance Bike Paths

Get your bucket lists ready my fellow cyclists. If you are looking to ride an epic journey through some of our country's most beautiful landscapes, I've got just the list for you. Here are some of the best long-distance bike paths in America. 1. The Denali Highway This road was once was used as a supply route for miners during the Alaskan Gold Rush, but now it's the perfect pathway for cyclists looking to explore Alaska! The route runs from Paxson and Cantwell, is mainly gravel, and stretches 133-miles. Plently of camping, hiking, kayaking, and hardly any (if any at all) vehicular traffic. 2. Erie Canal This route became popular for cyclists in the 1990s, but technically it 'opened' in 1925. The path is 400 miles and stretches from Buffalo to Albany following the canal. You'll be able to explore this flat terrain that is often called by cyclists the "historical eighth wonder of the world." 3. Great Divide Trail You'll need 3 months of vacation and lots of energy. This trail runs 2,493 miles and includes incredible single-track, mixed gravel, and converted railroad beds. Connecting Canada to Mexico, this trail gains more than 200,000 feet of elevation. 4. Great Ohio Lake to River Greenway Connecting Lake Erie to the Ohio River, this 110 mile paved path is relatively shorter then the rest of the paths on this list, but it's just as beautiful. 5. Coeur D'Alenes Trail This Northern Idaho bike path is relatively flat and ideal for families and novice cyclists. With just under 200 miles of trail, the paved trails meander through wetlands and meadows with opportunities to spot wildlife such as moose and local birds. 6. Utah Cliffs Loop Explore “Color Coun­try,” Utah as you pedal along 287 miles of trail start­ing and end­ing in St. George. Cyclists ride along­side sub­alpine forests, red sand­stone cliffs and famous land­marks such as Zion and Snow Canyon National Park. Ele­va­tion ranges between 2,500 to 10,000 feet above sea level. 7. Florida Connector This 530-mile trail con­nects St. Augus­tine to Key West, Florida. It is most ideal to cycle Decem­ber to March to beat the hot, humid and hur­ri­cane weather. The path includes a com­bi­na­tion of cycling road lanes, side­walks and bike-only paths. The ter­rain fea­tures a com­bi­na­tion of flat and rolling hills. The path rolls through the rural lands with the pos­si­bil­ity of spot­ting a road­side alligator.

House exchange is an excellent way to enjoy family holidays on a limited budget. The cost of Accommodations is usually the most significant chunk of any vacation spending. So, the cutting costs on this considerable expense can unlock doors of possibilities.  The potential savings allow you to spend more money on sightseeing, food, entertainment, and shopping at a vacation destination. But, before you finish your home exchange deal, it is imperative to know the optimum way to communicate with your exchange partner. Clear All Your Doubts & Queries Right Away Once you’ve received a query or someone has replied to your request, the next step is to talk to your potential home exchange partner. It’s best to clear all your questions and eliminate all doubt before you go ahead with the swapping deal. Inquire about the amenities in the house, such as the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, the configurations of beds, Internet connectivity, LED Screen, patio garden, or pool. If you’re traveling with kids, make sure you talk about the things to do and see in the proximity that is kid-friendly.  When asking queries have realistic expectations. Don’t expect their house to be as perfect as your home, and you may not have all the facilities. Don’t feel timid about asking any type of questions, like how are the neighbors, where are the most convenient dry cleaner, etc. What’s important is to be open and transparent with our swapper. Exchange Options In the end, if you don’t want to arrange a direct exchange meaning you live in someone else’s residency, while they live in yours. You can opt for an indirect exchange, whereby you use their property even if they don’t use your property. Agree on the Exchange Dates During the initial discussions with your home partner, it’s critical to agree on the travel dates. You don’t want to find yourself in a situation when you’ve arrived at their place after a 7-hour flight, only to find that someone else is still at the property. Also, be as flexible as possible with your dates. If you are getting a great exchange at a location you always wanted to visit, flexibility always helps. Converse on the Platform It is of paramount importance to ensure that all the discussion and decisions must be kept on the home exchange platform itself. This way, you can stay clear of all potential hiccups or confusion along the way and can be managed by the customer services team of the exchange site. A reliable exchange verifies the property of swapper and their details to ensure a smooth, hassle-free experience. Layout the Swapping Deal Details Be clear and concise with your home exchange partner with regards to exactly what is included in the exchange. This might include such mundane actions as to what to do with the dirty towels & linen once you leave their place after a vacation; this is to avoid last-minute swapping mishaps. Wrapping up Finally do sufficient research to zero in on a trustworthy home exchange company to achieve complete peace of mind that everything is taken care of.
