Sooooo many routing options! I'm leaving July 1 for the start of the WABDR and have 2 days to ride from San Diego to the CA/Oregon border (and then another easy day to get to Hood River OR). I've done this many times over the last 4 years and was salivating at visiting some of my favorite CA roads. However the explorer in me thinks I should try something new. Here's the data: 1200 GSAdv with R80 soft bags. Anakee Wild tires solo travel Comfortable riding 800 mile days on pavement or 500 mile days on mixed surface. (12 hour day) Pirate camp/ pay camp/cheap motel - all good options. I had a hankering to ride Angels Crest east to west, on to Ojai to Carizzo Plain on day 1. I know Carizzo flower season is quite behind us, but thought I'd do a ride through just to get the lay of the land. Then day 2 to Morrow Bay and up the coast to Ft. Bragg and beyond to Leggett. More fantastically epic road riding, and get a picture of my GS and me in front of the now sadly toppled Chandelier Tree to go with my pics of my other bikes there. But maybe I should ride Angels crest west to east and then saunter up through the Sierra's. I'll need to keep most of the miles on pavement for the sake of time. And I have a standing rule (with the wifey) to not ride (technical) off road alone. Do you have a favorite route up through CA? I have a week to think about it and decide. Welcome all your ideas on how you would spend 2 days getting through California to the northern border.
