Tour2007

Tour 2007 – References

I’d always planned for this tour to be pretty opened ended, without guaranteed destinations or pre booked places to go. There are a lot of options for camping, motelling, hostels etc on the route and I’d figured I’d stop when I felt I was done. That being said I did do a bunch of research beforehand to discover just how flexible I could be. Once I was out in the National Forest I heavily used Kirkendale and Springs Cycling the Pacific Coast as a guide. Though after having done so, I’d question a lot of their decisions (more on that in another post).  So since I did all this research, here is the information I gathered.
