I am considering doing a big clockwise loop following the Adventure Cycling maps. It's LA to San Francisco, to Cedar City, through the Grand Canyon, to Tempe, to San Diego, and back to LA. It's almost 2,500 miles. If I could ride 75 miles a day, 5 days a week, it would take me almost 7 weeks or 45 days.
What kind of budget would I be looking at riding solo? And I'm not going camping or cooking my own food. How cheap are motels, especially outside of the "Big City"? Does a total budget of $100/day sound reasonable or is that too little?
