OK, so I'm planning a long trip this summer. I live in the bay area in California and will have about 3 months to ride toward the east coast. Along the way, I'd like to go through Sheridan, WY (in the north-central part of the state).
My initial plan was to ride up the coast to about the middle of Oregon before heading east, but(!) will the headwinds kill me before I get there? Anybody with experience riding north along the California/Oregon coast? Are there crazy headwinds on 101 up north of Mendocino?
Any inklings of route suggestions very much appreciated.
