Connecting ACA Routes / Crescent City, CA to Sierra Cascades Route
« on: March 08, 2021, 05:03:10 pm »
I'm trying to figure out a route going from Crescent City over to the Sierra Cascades route. I'm starting out in the Bay area and riding north on Pacific Coast route. I would like to head over to the Sierra Cascades route from Crescent City to loop back down the SC route to Western Express and back to San Fran.
The googles throw out three options to connect over to Mt Shasta. One going up through Grants Pass, Medford and meeting up with the SC route in Ashland. Another riding up to O'brien then heading down to 96 and riding that over to just north of Yreka. That route looks super pretty, but the shoulder on 96 does not seem to be consistent.  Which would not be a huge problem if traffic is reasonable. I found one post in this forum about 96, but that was back in 2014.  The third route was a route in between the first and second.

There is not a significant mileage difference, so just looking for the route that will be the nicest ride.  96 caught my interest since it follows the Klamath river which would be nice.  Anyone have suggestions or info on how to link Crescent City to the SC route?

Gear Talk / Ortlieb Spare Parts

What spare parts do you carry for your panniers?  I'm using Ortlieb Back Rollers and Bike Packer Plus bags.  The back rollers are my front panniers because we are touring on a tandem.  :)  Any other advice for those panniers would be most welcome as well.  I remember reading in different places about adding hooks and such, but it's been a while so not sure what might be recommended.
