    There are only a couple of bike routes doable from San Diego CA to Yuma AZ and they are without a doubt demanding, especially consider the mountain pass. You go from Sea Amount to just above 4,000 feet in elevation. It is a wicked experience with lots of hills and heat. Usually there are serious crosswinds and you get relatively sandblasted on a bicycle. The route is a minor challenging for the 1st 22 miles, but may possibly I propose you start off out at the Lodge Del Coronado to help operate you into the route. The wind together the Pacific is brisk and always blowing.Now then starting up from the Lodge Del you vacation down Hwy 75 south about nine-miles and a stunning trip with the wind at your back. This will be the very last of the beauty for a even though, the heat-up will be nice contemplating the foreseeable future that lies in advance. When you san diego hills strike Palm Ave. you are ready for your trek Eastward across the base of the state. Get Palm Ave to Beyer Blvd North to Orange Avenue East, which turns into Olympic Parkway. Turn still left on to Hunter Parkway 1 mile to East Otay Lakes Rd and then seven miles to Hwy ninety four, which you will endure.You will then just take Hwy 94 to I-8 about fifty miles of hard using, dry, sizzling and lengthy and just just before you get there you will take Old Hwy 80 about 10 a lot more miles, which then connects to I-8 for a little bit for about 10 miles above the 4,000 foot move, that is a single heck of a climb in fact. Up coming you will get off on Hwy 98 and take that to Calexico about 38 miles, but it is most all down hill and refreshing, well considering the dusty desert and winds. But you are now on the flats and you can make a great clip throughout the desert.Soon after Calexico you experience yet another easy, but relatively boring 20 more miles to Evan Hewes Hwy, which is like a frontage road for awhile and then you will appear to the 186 Hwy and go North to Araz Junction and follow Araz Rd. to Yuma Crossing Point out Park, exactly where you will trip into Yuma, AZ on Business 8 or Fifth Street. You made it 177 miles, not poor for twelve-hour trip now might I suggest cruising by means of the town to Barnes and Noble, as it is a excellent decide-up point with an air-conditioned espresso shop, In the meantime I will prepare myself for my 2nd day of riding into Phoenix on my Ride Across The united states.
