California / Re: Sacramento to Reno

This is a roundabout way but scenic. Take hwy 16 out of Sac. connect to Hwy 49 then to 88 going through Jackson and up to Carson Pass. At the bottom of the pass you catch 89 to South Lake Tahoe and then can continue up the Northern side of the lake to Tahoe City.

Routes / Re: Just wondering about northwestern California

How were you planning on getting to 96?. Hwy 299 from Arcata to Willow Creek has two lengthy summits and can be pretty narrow but ride-able, especially early in the morning. Hwy 96 from Willow Creek to Hoopa is very narrow and windy, dangerous in fact. After Hoopa it remains narrow but not as windy. 96 is a beautiful road but not sure I would tour on it.

Very realistic, especially if you remember you have all day to ride. I have done an average like this before carrying a bit more gear but still found it possible. Be sure you are fit, or else your knees and achilles will start to complain. Good luck and have fun.

Any information/experience about the frequency, cost, etc of camping found along the Erie Canal and Lake Erie Connector would be most helpful. Also, any information about hotels, motels, etc will be helpful. Thanks very much.

Probably come into Michigan at Port Huron and ride up to Petoskey and on into the UP or maybe back down to Ludington and ferry across.

Thanks for the reply. We are going the Northern Tier with a detour through Ontario into Michigan.

I see you have mini-Vbrakes. I have never heard of these. Could you provide more information about them.
