Next November I will be taking a 7 days ride from Los Angeles to San Francisco, starting on the 6th and arriving in San Francisco on the 12th, where I am going to stay for 3 days then flying to Vancouver/CA. I will be following the Adventure Cycling association route map.
I read it would be better the other way, from San Francisco south to Los Angeles because of the wind, also the weather I think will not be pleasant, but the main reason for this trip is to visit family and friends in Vancouver, but I could just find flights using miles to Los Angeles at this time of the year. I was planning to take a plane from LA to Vancouver when I started thinking doing part of the trip by bicyccle and enjoy the Pacif Coast.
Bellow are my daily routes:
06/11/18 LOS ANGELES to VENTURA 113KM 70MI 7H
07/11/18 VENTURA to GAVIOTA 110KM 68MI 7H
08/11/18 GAVIOTA to PISMO BEACH 108KM 67MI 6H15M
09/11/18 PISMO BEACH to GORDA 131KM 81MI 8H30
10/11/18 GORDA TO MONTEREY 110KM 68MI 8H30
11/11/18 MONTEREY TO PESCADERO 137KM 85MI 8H30
12/11/18 PESCADERO TO SAN FRANCISCO 77KM 47MI 5H
It will be my first bicycle trip.
I am going to ride a road bike with the minimal clothing needed for 2 days.
I would like to take some suggestions, since some friends think I should do part of the trip by train and enjoy more days riding in to the cities and parks. It will be my first time at this part of USA.
Also would really appreciate to arrange with those who can host me.
