Hi, I guess I should have posted my proposed route. Below is what I copied from another's blo and he said was a good route.
East to West ride. I have concerns about mountains after Rosewell, NM. Someone in this thread suggested to go south from Rosewell to avid shoulderless roads and a steeper climb. I'm still leaning on doing the below. From Phoenix to San Diego I will use the ST maps from Adventure Cycling - not sure if below route shows same since my map hasn't arrived yet.
If anyone is familiar with these areas as far as camping, conditions, please chime in. I plan to start last week of March 2014. Will it be cold in the mountains?
Thanks again for all input - I appreciate it. Hey, I am also getting ready to order a new Surly LHT 56 cm with 26 inch wheels for Christmas but would love a deal on a slightly used one if anyone knows of one.
