Hey all I'm Jane, I'm in Chicago Illinois and I'm planning on doing some solo cycling/hitchhiking long term across the states for the first time. Any advice would be appreciated.

Welcome Aboard!!! You're in the right place! There's plenty of info and helpful people that can answer your questions.

However, I'm working on solo cycling myself in the future. There's the Discovery Trail that runs through Chicago that goes from the east coast to the west. There's information on it on this site for a start!

Good Luck and Welcome Aboard!

Thanks! I don't really have any plans so that seems like as good a start as any.

I just looked at the website and it looks like a thing that I can really get into.

Cool! I am debating to travel on it to the Rocky Mountains! It's that the cold and snowy months are coming very soon :( So that will delay me going if I want to travel on it by bicycle. Ice and snow is the enemy for bicycle riders!

I was worried about the cold months too but now I'm getting into the mindset of fuck it because if I don't leave as soon as I can then I'll just convince myself that it has to be the perfect conditions for me to go and I know that will never happen.
