Routes / Salinas to SLO
« on: March 15, 2017, 12:44:38 pm »
I am cycling the Pacific Coast from San Francisco to San Diego in April and May. 
If HWY 1 remains closed on Big Sur I will have to detour through the Salinas valley.
Can anyone advise me about the best/different routes through the Salinas Valley?
I have seen various route options but very little description of the routes and possible accommodation.
I will be aiming to cover about 50 miles a day, depending on terrain.

GPS & Digital Data Discussion / Easytrails App - Loading tracks
« on: January 15, 2017, 04:50:21 pm »
Sorry if this has been dealt with elsewhere, I did search but could not find anything relevant.
I have purchased the Section 4 and 5 Pacific Coast digital maps and I can view them successfully using the free GPX Viewer app on my Android Phone.
My daughter bought me an IPAD 2 for Christmas and I would like to view the maps on the IPAD, but GPX Viewer does not seem to be offered for IOS devices, so I have downloaded the recommended Easytrails app onto the IPAD, (free version) however, I cannot see how to load the digital gpx files from the ACA. Can anyone tell me:
1. Does the free version of Easytrails let you load tracks?
2. If it does, can someone give me a clue as to how it works.
Many Thanks

I will be cycling from SF to San Diego in April and May 2017.
Does anyone have any experience of the HI hostels in SF? (Or other hostels etc in SF)
I am looking for budget accommodation with bike storage.
Also any advice on accommodation between SF and SD on the PC bike route would be appreciated.
Apologies if I have missed any relevant posts, I did search but could not find a great deal.

Routes / Camp Pendleton - access North to South for touring cyclists
« on: December 16, 2016, 07:57:36 am »
I am planning to cycle from SF to SD in April-May 2017.
I am a UK citizen and I cannot use the Camp Pendleton online access system for cyclists.
I have emailed the camp, and their advice is, basically, "turn up at the gate with your ID and they might let you through"
Does anyone have any first hand of trying this since they introduced the controls?
I do know a US ex serviceman, I suppose I could apply for general access? but I only want one-off through access.
Any thoughts on the best course of action?
