Cascades route map #4 2011
« on: October 04, 2010, 05:26:31 am »
 Next summer my wife and I will be taking our first long tour (not counting the over nighters  :P ) by getting a ride up to Truckee and riding the fourth Map route from the cascades route :) I'm sure I need to get some serious hill time in on my bike HAHA but I have driven all over this area but never took the time to do it on a bike :) While we are sad to not be able to make the Hawaii trip for our 20th anniversory, this is something we are not to sad about as a compromise :) Heck the map section swings right near our home so all we need to get is a ride out to Truckee :p Lucky for me I know LOTS of people that travel the area :)  So our costs are going to be greatly reduced and that makes my wife very happy :)

Has anyone done this route durring the summer season? You know when all the schools are out?? I know Yosemite is going to be a pain (it always is) but how about the rest of it?? I don't have the map in hand yet (it's on it's way :) ) so I haven't seen what roads it takes, I'm sure I've been on them at least once in my life lol... Going to camp as much as posable but will probably stay at a few inns allong the way.

At the moment I'm thinking 2 weeks for this ride. I'll see what comments I get and what the true route is when I get the map and really get a sence of what I'm getting myself into :p
Slow is smooth, smooth is fast.

Take a look at Jim Hammond's journal: http://www.crazyguyonabike.com/doc/page/?o=RrzKj&page_id=160688&v=6
He recently completed the complete route. There are a few other journals recently completed on this route on "crazyguyonabike."
