Fixed Gear on the Southern Tier is the story of riding the Southern Tier ACA Route on a fixed-gear bicycle purchased from Walmart for $99.

The ACA, or Adventure Cycling Association, has an amazing set of waterproof maps that give a long-distance cyclist all the information they could possibly need for any of their routes.

Since the book-to-be has sat for so long on my laptop I decided to make all the original posts free to read, and to make a Free PDF Download available as well.
