General Discussion / Re: Touring TN.
« Last post by Pat Lamb on Today at 01:34:53 am »
Most of 64 has been widened, I think.  There might be a few stretches where the shoulders aren't all there, or clean, but that's always a risk you take.  Last time I was up there, the section around Fayetteville still had some 2-lane, but they may have finished it by now.

Going over the south end of the Cumberland Plateau will be a problem, since 64 merges with I-24 from Decherd up the mountain, and coming down from Monteagle.  Double-plus ungood.  Take 41 to Sewanee, instead.  East of Winchester it's 2-3 lanes up the mountain to Sewanee, then I think it's still two lanes to Monteagle. 

You could take 41 down to Jasper, then over the "new blue bridge" to Haletown.  I'd recommend, instead, taking the TN 156 back road from Sewanee down to South Pittsburgh.  You could get on the racetrack-without-shoulders from South Pittsburgh to Kimball, after you get to Jasper the traffic approaches sane across the river.  Instead, cross the Tennessee River on the bridge in South Pittsburgh and go up past Nickjack on 156 to Haletown. 

From there you can take 41/64 up to Wauhatchie, or (better) cut south and climb the hill up to Wildwood, GA, and then follow 11 and Wauhatchie Pike towards Browns Ferry Rd, where you'll follow 64/41/11 over the foot of Lookout Mountain into Chattanooga.

Fine overall.  Typical city traffic.  Some streets have a parallel bike path that is NOT paved but is rideable.  Chula Vista was a little hilly (70 miles day for us as we came from Jacumba Hot Springs) but not bad at all.  The RV park on Otay Lakes Rd. does have cabins/trailers by the night if you need to stop there.   John

That's very helpful, John.  Fortunately I will be traveling westbound.  So how is the section after Otay Lakes Rd?  (Between there and San Diego)

That is actually the way we rode into SD.  While the section before the Tecate turnoff is fine and scenic, the section between Tecate and Otay Lakes Rd has significant traffic and in some places no shoulder.  Luckily, we were west bound with a serious downhill so we basically spread out about 1/4 mile apart and took the lane in several places as needed.  I definitely would not take this latter section eastbound as you would be into a miserable situation uphill, no shoulders, and traffic.  Honestly, I can not recommend this section unless you are NOT afraid of traffic and such.  It was a week day mid-afternoon and the drivers were not overly patient.  The traffic counts did not match the traffic.

We did not cross into Tecate but it should be a easy crossing both ways.  You would need a passport. 

The reason we did it is that we wanted to enter SD from Imperial Beach and ride along the path through Coronado (one of the riders used to live there).

John......I followed up with your suggestion to consider CA-98 to Calexico.....it definitely looks better than staying on I-8.  That got me also looking at CA-94 which exits I-8 at Boulevard and continues on to the San Diego area.   The best place for me to stop (distance-wise) would be Tecate.  However, I would have to cross into Mexico to find a place to stay.  Have you ever crossed here by bike?  I don't want to wait in a line for 2 hours each way.

Here is a great idea to make a high-volume low-pressure inflator out of a trash bag and old plastic soda bottle (nearly free, negligible weight, can double as a pannier or pack liner).

This DIY device will be a LOT less work than trying to use your bicycle pump to fill an air mattress.

Yeah. It would take forever. I had a BA Air Core and cold get it nearly full with 20 breaths. Same for my current, thick Nemo pad. Never had any problems with moisture.
