I might be repeating what has already been asked but i am travelling from the UK so want to be prepared! I am planning on riding down from Seattle or Portland down to Bakersfield and back up Sierra cascades. What weather will i likely to be expecting end of April beginning of May down the Pacific coast?

As they say, "April showers bring May flowers". If you're going to be in WA. in April expect wet weather and that goes double if you're on the West side of the Olympic Peninsula, they call that area a rain forrest for a reason.  ;)

I'm riding a loop around the peninsula myself this summer and even though there will be more tourists i'm planning on the last two weeks of August just to avoid the rain as much as possible, but, no-one can predict the weather.

Good luck

I rode from Santa Cruz to Redondo Beach during the first week of October. I brought a windbreaker in case I encountered some light rain. Got lucky, though, the weather was perfect every day. Some light fog from San Simeon to Morro Bay one morning...
