Routes / Oregon in late May vs Western Express
« on: April 04, 2018, 12:13:36 pm »
I assume the answer to this lies somewhere in earlier forums, but I can't find it.  I am trying to decide between starting in Astoria in late May and turning left in California to head east to Colorado vs just starting in Sacramento on the Western Express.  A couple of questions.  Is late May a good time to ride the Oregon coast?  Any suggested routes from Mendocino/ Ft Bragg area to head east and meet the Western Express route?  I want to avoid the more crowded parts of northern CA approaching San Fransisco.  Anyone with experience riding Nevada and Utah in June?  Wicked hot?  Thanks in advance for your advice.

Planning to ride the Pacific Trail from Vancouver to San Francisco.  Would a cyclocross bike make sense because it is lighter and higher performance than a touring bike?  I do a lot of road biking so position is comfortable.  Second Question: Is early October a good time for this ride? 3rd Q: Any good links for a packing list?  We are planning to camp along the way.  Final Q?: What types of locks do touring riders use?

Thanks for your help.

Planning a 3 week trip from Seattle to Big Sur in October, camping along the way.  I have a nice road bike.  Can I use this and pull a trailer or do I need a touring bike which would allow panniers?  I assume my road peddles and shoes will be fine for such an adventure.
