Routes / Seattle to San Francisco Aug/Sept
« on: May 30, 2009, 09:02:34 pm »
I am planning my first long tour (over 200mi), beginning in Seattle and heading to San Francisco. I would appreciate some help in planning and understanding this route. I am coming from south Florida (flat flat flat) and don't know how to judge travel in this region. I need to be in SF on a particular date. I am ordering AC maps, but don't have them yet. So far, I don't have any traveling companions.

Is it unreasonable to expect to travel 50-60 mi/day heading north to south (for a flatlander)? I hope to take a day off every now and then, to enjoy the scenery.

Are there frequent bike-friendly places to stay on AC route? (churches, YMCAs, fire houses)

I have a road bike with pretty good low gears -- is this route going to feel rough for a road bike?

Are there lots of bears in campgrounds on this route?

Any input welcome.
