S. Tier option S. Diego?
« on: October 09, 2006, 10:24:20 am »
I'm doing long-range thinking about a TransAm for next year.  I'm curious about the Adventure Cycling route through San Diego county.  I've studied maps and found that there is another, more southernly route.  I forget the route numbers, but it rolls along close to the Mexico border.  What do you think of this as an alternate?  Why does the ACA follow the main highway?  Your thoughts and experiences appreciated.

Cheers,

Scott

Well, I just answered my own question.  I did a bit of reseach and found a journal I'd read on Crazyguyonabike.com that follows this route.  It turns out that the highway I was considering, Hwy 94, has a lot of traffic towards San Diego and little shoulder in the west-bound direction (the way I'll be traveling).  So it looks like the ACA route will be the way to go.

Cheers,
