Sierra Cascades Section 2

Have not set out yet, but plotted the route on the State Bike Routes map to start planning drop off and pick up sites for shuttles etc. Nice to have the routes planned around "cities" and other small places so we can keep off the main drags. If the trip map for the cross country -- Seattle to Bangor -- are as complete, the ride should be a piece of cake -- one peddle at a time for only 93 days!
A Beautiful route

I followed this map only to Bend so it cannot speak for the last couple of sections but up until there it was great. Easy to follow, helpful information for the towns and a very scenic and pretty route.
Windigo Pass road is in poor shape
Mike on 7/13/16
This is more a review of the route then the map. The map itself was great and worked out well. However, coming from the south (Diamond Lake) and heading north on Windigo Pass was challenging. We were on loaded road-ish bikes (read: 28 mm, smooth tires). Getting up the gravel road was ok. However, coming down the pass, the road condition deteriorated into effectively sand for the descent. Luckily we made it down ok going about 5 mph and have a good story to tell now. That said, posting here to at least give people a heads up. If you're going to take this route, wider tires - ideally with a little tread - will make life a lot easier if you go the alternate route.
