cycling from LA to Flagstaff

What are some possible routes to take? I was hoping to take about 5 days. Things to keep in mind...interesting things to see along the way, safety while riding? Places to get food, restrooms? Thank you...

They charge for maps but this might be a good route for you (reversed)

I've ridden the section from Victorville almost to Needles (I turned north and went to Boulder City). If you like the desert there's a lot of interesting stuff to see. I'm planning a ride from Flagstaff westbound to wherever (Needles? Barstow?) in July. My blog from the Route 66 ride is at Crazyguyonabike.com, search for DenSamOz.
