This coming summer I will be biking from Boston to San Francisco with a small group of people. We are discussing the route we might take for sightseeing purposes.
So far we are planning to cross Massachusetts and upstate New York to see Niagara Falls and then most likely along the great lakes to Cedar Point in Ohio for what will likely be our second rest day. From there we aren't sure which direction to head. I think it'd be more fun to take a more northern route and see the arch in St Louis, and then Yosemite, Crater Lake, the Redwoods and ultimately down the PCH to San Fran, with other stops along the way. We are also looking at a route that would let us see the Grand Canyon and other sites along a southern path.
I'd like to hear some pros and cons to each route. We will be going in June and July and already know that crossing the desert in the summer is a con.
P.S. if you're ultimately on our route and want to let us camp in your yard in exchange for stories on the road and a hug then that's cool too. Haha.
