Tour2009: Itinerary

This is my basic Itinerary for the tour. This will also serve as an index of sorts, as I’ll turn all these pages into links after the tour.  This basic route is from Kirkendall and Spring’s Bicycling The Pacific Coast, with my own route for the first couple of days and ending in San Francisco. From San Franciso I’m taking the Coast Starlight Amtrak home which I’m also looking forward to – I haven’t done a train trip of this length before.  Of course there is a bit of flexibility in this schedule, especially in Oregon where the next campsite is never that far down the coast and thus could easily stay at different places then those noted here. This is a popular tour route in the summer and its often better to not slavishly follow a published route if you don’t have to. The key is that about 55 miles needs to be ridden every day to make it to SF within my allotted time.  So watch the blog to see how the trip really progresses.
