I'm looking to ride out of Seattle and connect to the Northern Tier, eastbound. I would prefer to ride Northeast than straight North as I am on a bit of a time constraint (I'm Minneapolis-bound).
I came across this: http://www.adventurecycling.org/forums/index.php?topic=7048.msg34747#msg34747 which is helpful, but I'm looking for other opinions.
I'm an experienced cyclist and prefer direct routes over numerous turns at the expense of lighter traveled roads.
Thanks in advance for any input!
