I decided that the best mode of transport to Seattle (From the Bay Area) would clearly be a bicycle. So my process went 1. buy bicycle and 2. read about the routes. I already have the bike now and will be ending a 18 month journey in Seattle, so changing my route to the more preferable North to South is an impossibility. I'm wondering if anyone has good South-to-North route suggestions and what weather to expect in April/May.
1. Would you suggest a route other than the headwind-y coastal route? I know the coast will be beautiful and probably that's my destiny, but I wonder if maybe some inland forest route could be fun and full of good flora? Time isn't so much an issue as beautiful + safe-ish.
2. How will the weather be in late April/Early May?
I hope the headwind and lane size isn't as bad as googling makes it sound!
