Portland Oregon to Reno Nevada
« on: January 06, 2013, 10:20:42 pm »
I am riding from Portland Oregon to Reno Nev. this July and am looking for route suggestions.  I have thought about the Sierra/Cascade route but also though that it might be more fun to go down the coast and then cut over.  Any thoughts about which of the two routes?  Also, if I go the coast route, where should I cut over from the coast to Reno?  Thanks

The Western Express passes within 30 miles of Reno. You could take Old US 395 from Carson City up to Reno--since it parallels I-580, I doubt it gets much traffic. The WE connects with the SC at Woodsford, CA. Or you could cut over from Truckee.
