Pacific Northwest / Re: Anyone ridden the John Wayne Pioneer Trail in WA?

The Thorp tunnel is the one I thought was permanently closed.  I haven't seen anything in the local papers about it opening, and the last time I was out in that area the 'Detour' signs were still up.  If the weather cooperates, I might try checking it out.

There are a couple of tunnels on the JWT between Cle Elum and Ellensburg--at least one of which is permanently closed.  There are actually a couple of alternatives  besides I-90.  If you look at the Manastash Metric route, ( http://www.drier-ride.org/map.htm ) you'll see hwy 10 paralleling I-90 on the North and back roads such as Upper Peoh Point Road on the South side; Hwy 10 would be your best bet.

The best coverage I've found in the rural areas of MT, ND, SD, WY and UT has been US Cellular; also along the WA and OR coasts.

Hmmm.  Young, adventurous, no timetable; the worst that could happen is your bikes break down so you continue on hiking or bus riding.  Go for it!

Bicycle Route 66 / Re: Has anyone ridden any parts of route 66?
« on: October 24, 2011, 11:12:30 pm »
I just rode on Route 66 (http://retrocycler.blogspot.com/2011/10/sixty-six.html) from Seligman, Az to--nearly--Kingman and can tell you that section is fine for riding.  I also drove on old 66 between Kingman and Topock and would not do it on a bike or trike; it's narrow, no shoulder and many hairpin, blind curves.  You'd do better on I-40/new 66 for that section.

You need to call me when we get rid of some of this snow and take my 'bent or trike for a ride--your butt will thank you.   ;)

It doesn't appear it would be too comfortable for recumbent riders.

I had C-1/C-2 fused in Nov '07 and was riding 3 months later.  The riding position on my upright was rather uncomfortable for me so I bought a LWB recumbent; last year I rode it 3000+ miles with no problems.

Good luck.

Howdy.  I'm down in Cle Elum--you may have seen me riding around; I think I've got the only recumbent in town.  I'm not too keen about riding in the snow and slush so maybe we can meet up when the weather gets a bit better.
