if you are still planning,  the Hostel at the Montara Lighthouse just south of San Fran has good accommodations and a great location and view.
There is another hostel just south at another lighthouse also.

Gear Talk / The Newer Cro-Mo Steel Frames
« Last post by Les in Tucson on July 27, 2016, 03:35:26 pm »
Have you noticed that the entry level steel touring bike/frame makers come up with their own cool sounding name for their "Cro-Mo" tubing?  I believe that this is because they're sourcing tubing from parts of the world that has not been certified by any recognized agency that cerifies Cro-Mo tubing.  So if the tubing has not been certified to meet any sort of ANSI standard then is it really Cro-Mo tubing?  I say no, it isn't, else the manufacturer would advertise that fact.  I believe this is why the old steel bikes made with the real stuff, Tange, Tru-Temp, Reynolds etc. have skyrocketed in price.  Something to ponder.

The OpenStreetMap wiki page has links to download a .gpx file for each route, but I have not had any luck with actually getting a valid file to download.

Saw this too... Same luck :-(

There is also a number there to call if you have questions. 

Here is a news article that talks about the campgrounds in the area that are currently closed (July 26):

Hi Steve,

Since USBR routes are designated on a state-by-state basis, they are the keepers of any data associated with them. You would need to contact the states individually to find out what they have available. You will find links to each state's resources here:

https://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/us-bicycle-route-system/maps-and-route-resources/

I hope this helps.
