Having completed Part 1 (see our blog at www.2pedalers.wordpress.com
), we are getting ready to complete the route beginning late October (around the 25th) with an estimated completion date of Nov. 2nd. For this segment, we will have a SAG vehicle, so we will have a few more options re: accommodations (still can't convince my wife to camp). One of those options will be to drive the segment from Needles, CA to Barstow, CA since its 150 miles with virtually no accommodations (although I understand there is a place to stay in Ludlow).
I would love to hear from anyone who has cycled through the LA area, particularly from San Bernardino to Santa Monica, with suggestions on a good route to take through the metro LA area, or where we might find maps/routes that are bicycle friendly.
If you're considering Route 66 as a bicycle adventure, we can highly recommend it. Our trip from Flagstaff to Chicago was full of great places and fabulous people.
Thanks in advance,
Jeff & Ellen
