I am new to these forums and I've looking to get some advice on a ride from Los Angeles to San Francisco. I've never attempted something this intense on my bike before, but it sounds too fun to pass up. My plan is to go in the last week of January and get a car ride back to LA. I want opinions of routes, places to stay, length of ride, clothing, what to bring. Any advice would be most appreciated as I'm finding it difficult to get any information online. Thank you very much and I look forward to hear your guys stories.
