    Dean when i was planning my pacific coast ride i spoke with a lot of folks and they warned me of the lack of bike lanes going north and said the prevailing winds typically blow north to south. i even spoke with a gentlman who rode north and said the wind was so bad that he would never do it that direction again he claimed to have a headwind ever day of his tour...something to think about...

    A late reply, but there is a book by a LA Times reporter who did a VA to CA tour, motels every night. He was in mid 50s too. I forget the name and the book title.
