Questions for San Franciso riders about a trip
So this will be a year of traveling. I may not make it for the NACCCs, but I'd like to investigate the possibility of doing a San Fran to Silverado Road fixed/ss trip. I'm from Philadelphia and would be flying into SFO. I don't have a hardcase bike box for flying with, I was considering shipping it to someone I know there and picking it up when I arrive.
Looking at Google Earth, it looks to be about 60 miles from airport to Silverado Road. My question is can it be done ss/fixed? What terrain can I expect? Does anyone from the area have a route they like? Anyone know resources (websites, local bike clubs, publications) that I could use to plan the trip? I'd be doing it late spring or summer and camping if possible. This would be a budget trip, but I'll have enough for wine, some good grub etc. Just trying to eliminate the lodging expenses and enjoy the great outdoors.
If ss/fixed is no good, I have a geared road bike to use, but my fixed is set up just right for light touring. Any and all input will be appreciated. Here's to bikes, wine, good food and great roads (I just don't know where they are yet).
