Boise to Chico CA to So Cal- Route Suggestions Please
I'm doing a Fly & Ride from Boise Idaho to San Diego via Chico (Nor Cal north of Sacramento) and am looking for route suggestions, particularly between Boise and Chico. This will be a solo trip on a new-to-me bike, so I'm leaning towards sticking to normally used roads. The trip will be next week (October 10th 2012), and the weather is looking to be nice. I have no special itinerary other than stopping in Chico to visit my son along the way.
I have been thinking of heading north to Nampa and west into Oregon, then south towards Susanville along the way, but am definitely open to suggestions. Must-stop restaurants along the way, and friendly motel/hotel ideas would be great.
I think I have traveled most every road between Chico and San Diego, but perhaps someone knows some hidden gem that I don't.
Thanks in advance for any recommendations.
