I'm starting the western express fron San Francisco on the 10th May.  Anyone got any advice?  I'm going early as there is a solar eclipse near Fallon NV on the 20th May and Iwant to get there in time (it's my birthday)

Be prepared for lots and lots of climbing.  There may also be snow.

I rode from SF to Carson City.  Here is my journal of that ride.

The day from Placerville to Kirkwood was one of the hardest days I've ever had on a bicycle.

Have a great time.
