Bubba's route appears to be considerably flatter than the same portion of the ACA route (maps 1 and 2).
Bubba's route covers lower ground than the ACA route. It might get very cold in the mountains in early March. Sure the mountains are pretty, but I am looking to minimize the amount of climbing I have to do early in the tour. Are there any reasons why I should not take "Bubba"s" route? Has anyone taken "Bubbas" route?
A lot of people tend to bicycle tour during the summer. During the summer, Bubba's desert route might be impossibly hot, and the ACA route in the mountains would be the way to go. But in March I think Bubba's route is the way to go. BTW, It got down to 20 F last night in Silver City, NM on the ACA route.
