My buddy and I are flying up to do the STP in July. We're going to keep going down the coast to San Franscisco. We plan to do it in 8 days. If we don't get all the way to Frisco that's ok too. My question is which route is best to get from Portland over to the Pacific coast bike route? We would also appreciate any tips that y'all have learned that might help us out along the way. Our wives will be sightseeing along the way and getting the hotels or b&bs arranged ahead of us. Camping won't really be an option with them along. Thanks in advance.
