Myself and a few friends are planning to tour from San Franciso down to Santa Cruz and onwards through national parks starting with Yosemite to Las vegas, we are new to this so am wondering if anyone has advice with the following questions?
1. How long is a reasonable time to get from Santa Cruz to Vegas through those area's non stop without sightseeing? We will sightsee of course I'm just wondering for planning purposes I'd estimate we won't be doing more than 10mph at best.
2. Is it fesable to attempt this in early May and does anyone know if they would allow people to cycle the roads at this time of year.
Thanks for the help in advance!
