I am from Finland and I haven`t bee earlier in Usa. I come to San Francisco begin of june and I am going to do 12 days cycling tour. I use road bike and normally I ride 70-100 miles in day( 4-7h) and after that I looking around and I want to see local lifestyle.
I would like to see beautiful scenerys, places and nature.
First idea is to ride San Francisco to Big Sur, Paso Robles, Yosemite national park and back to San Francisco.
second thought is to ride to lake Tahoe, ride little bit route 89 ( sierra cascades) to Greenvilleand after that to the coast ( north of San Francisco) , maybe Napa valley is good place to cycle.
I prefer sleep affordable motels, but maybe I will take smal tent with me
Do you know good routes or do you have some other advice?
