Rode the entire route first year these maps became available. As an Oregon Native Familiar with the PCT (Pacific Crest Trail) I knew it would be a challenge. Some of the No California hwy choices were extremely dangerous., with little to no shoulder. Couple this with poor knowledge of the local populations bike awareness, and you have a recipe for disaster. I took a star off for this reason. All in all It was a stunning 6 week ride. slide show here if you care to see some of the highlights. Including the Bellingham Spur. Throw the bike on Amtrak to get there if you like, for only $5bucks over the cost of your ticket (+ the cost of their bike box).
