7/24 Middlegate--Fallon--Silver springs乾旱路段結束
7/25 Silver springs--Sorensens70英里(高速公路編號50,395,88)
7/26 Sorensens--Carson隘口--Placerville 69英里
(高速公路編號88,emigrant trail)

海拔約2613的Carson隘口,是下抵太平洋的最後難關。

我沒有western express trail(西部快線單車路線)精細地圖,我只有網站簡易的說明與示意圖。我採行這條單車路徑的主要原因包含它提供貫穿猶他州的景觀道路,還有到舊金山渡輪站的最短路徑。但是離開高速公路50進入交通網絡複雜的人口密集區,我不能再一條公路騎到底。

對我來說,最適合路徑的要件不外乎車流少,距離短,在都會區往往有單車道(off street bicycle trail)或單車車道(on street bicycle lane)可使用。而翻越內華達山脈,車流量大的高速公路50絕對不是好選擇。

高速公路50車流量大的原因除了距離優勢,還有它的隘口海拔最低。要麼車多(公路50),要嘛爬高(公路88),我選擇爬高,從海拔約1400的Minden(大約是爬坡起點)爬到2613的Carson隘口,看起來不難,是吧。

事實上,這段爬坡從Google地圖的Alpine village開始,分為三段。第一段沿者溪流爬到Sorensens的5英里(8公里)爬升400,坡度十分不平均,常有短陡坡為了爬上湍急的溪流。而隘口前的6英里(9.6公里)爬升約超過500公尺,坡度約6%,對負重的單車騎士實在辛苦。更何況這條路徑多無路肩,而內華達山區是內華達州與加州的遊樂場兼避暑勝地,車流量仍然不小,騎乘頗有壓力。

幸好我把這段路分成兩天,而翌日離開Carson隘口後不遠,我離開公路88而選擇車少冬季部分封閉的Emigrant trail,爾後下抵海拔僅約600的Placerville從這裡進入人口密集區,怪人也越來越多。白天要錢的與晚上飆車的全世界都有,這不是重點。但至少我在24日直到晚上約10點的斷斷續續雷陣雨之中,找到願意讓我在外面空地露營的加油站(原本計劃是再騎10公里到Lahontan州立休閒遊憩區(Lahontan state recreation area)露營,但是雨一直不停,且該鎮唯一汽車旅館客滿)。雖然他們再三確認我只待一天,且死守『不消費,沒廁所用』的政策,算了,我對好人的標準已經越來越低了。

24 Middlegate--Fallon--Silver springs west point of Nevada arid section
7/25 Silver springs--Sorensens70 miles(highway 50,395,88)
7/26 Sorensens--Carson隘口--Placerville 69 miles
(Highway88,emigrant trail)

Carson pass, 2613 meters above sea level, is the last barrier before Pacific ocean to me.

I don't have detailed map of western express trail, what I have is the brief description and map from the web. I cycled on this bicycle trail is because it provides scenic route in Utah and shortest route to San Francisco. But the bicycle trail doesn't follow single highway in the section west of arid Nevada, which also means it's impossible for me to wholly follow western express trail without a detailed map.

But I understand how the route is decided. Less traffic, shorter distance, scenic route, and also take advantage of existing bike path. Highway 50 is not the best choice of cycling cross Nevada Cascade, It's heavily traveled in California.

One of the reasons that highway 50 is heavily traveled is the pass is much lower in high altitude than other nearby highways. To climb higher with less traffic(highway 88), or climb less with more traffic(highway 50), I chose highway 88. And it seems not to difficult to climb 30 miles(50 kilometers) from Minden(where grade begins) to Carson pass with about 1300 meters altitude gaining, right?

In fact, there are only two strenuous sections of about 6 miles in each one section. The first section is from Alpine village(you could find the location on Google maps) to Sorensens with about 400 meters altitude gain. This section follows a creek and has a lot of “sprints grades” for going upstream of the rapid current. The second section is 6 miles before the pass with 6% grade in average. I think to climb Carson pass with a road bike to a trained cyclist is not difficult, but to me with heavy loads is a torment.

Luckily I divided the suffering section into two days. Beyond the pass, I shortcut on the light traffic Emigrant trail to Placerville. And it seems that unfriendly people is getting more as I am cycling into metropolitan area. But I still met someone to give me a favor. I was allowed to camp just outside the gas station in Silver springs because of the unceasing thunderstorms and no vacancy in the only motel in town.( I planned to camp in Lohontan state recreation area at first). Although the staff and the manager of the gas station confirmed that if I stayed there for just one day several times and insisted the policy of “no consumption, no access to the restroom.”. Whatever, I have lowered standards of “good people” , and the staff is one of them.

727 Placerville--Folsom--West Sacramento
728 West Sacramento--Dixon--Fairfield--南舊金山

沒有里程,因為我搞不清楚到底騎了多遠。

我原先前往舊金山的方式是騎到Vallejo,之後搭渡輪過去。Placerville到West Sacramento的路徑還不算太複雜,因為後半段有總長約23英里的America river單車道可騎,而前半段大概就是騎Green valley路之後接Blue Ravine路。但是翌日的路程,穿越數個衛星城市,過了Davis大學區後,我傻眼了。

雖然Google地圖有整人的壞習慣,但是仔細研究與實際騎乘,從Davis到Fairfield的路徑像金庫密碼是因為這裡是農田,道路不密集,錯過一個岔路再下一個距離遙遠,甚至有許多死路。在找不到更佳路徑下,我決定跟Google地圖騎!第一次死跟Google地圖,下場如何呢?

談下場前,跟定Google地圖對我有一個問題:沒人跟我說哪裡該轉。而避免手機沒電,我先照相地圖細節,然後每次記三個該轉彎的路口道路名稱,到了第三個路口再停下來看照片記接下來三個該轉彎的路口。

除了兩處因為施工道路封閉必須繞路,我這樣運作似乎沒有太大問題,除了頗耗時。到了Vacaville,距離出發點約60公里,我已經花費5小時在玩這個左左右右的怪遊戲,而且眼前的道路似乎更『有趣。』

因為旅館預定(我兩天前才下定,想也知道週末沒剩多少選擇,扣除價格太誇張或評分太低的,只剩南舊金山的旅館),我今天一定要到南舊金山。既然本來就打算使用大眾運輸(要不然要游泳過去嗎?),那提早使用大眾運輸吧。於是我從Fairfield上了城際巴士,之後搭捷運到南舊金山。而城際巴士有行李箱放單車,甚至有單車保護裝置,請見照片。而接下來的太平洋海岸公路有些單車客健行者露營地,我打算每天都在那裡過夜,並把這些地點列為未來的目的地

727 Placerville--Folsom--West Sacramento
728 West Sacramento--Dixon--Fairfield--South San Francisco

I don't know exactly how far I rode in the two days .

My original plan was cycle to Vallejo and then take ferry to San Francisco. Following Green valley road, Blue Ravine road, then America river path, The route from Placerville to West Sacramento is not complicate. But the route I took on 728 is about cycling through several satellite cities, which is extremely complicated beyond Davis. It looks like I have to make turns in every mile.

After hitting the road, I understood that the route is so complicated is because this section goes through farms and ranches, which means the road system is not densed, the cyclist may have to cycle much more distance if he misses this junction should make a turn. Even more, dead ends are not rare in this area. After several tries to plan the route myself instead of using Google maps, I realized that there is no better alternative route. So I decided to follow the Google maps route.

To avoid the cellphone run out of power, I took pictures of the planned route on Google maps. But there was a realistic problem of following the Google maps, no one tells me where to make turns. I can't memorize all the roads that I should turn. So I memorize 3 roads that I should make the turn, and then stopped for reading the pic of the map, memorized next 3 roads when I finished this section.

This method worked fine for me, other than 2 sections of closure due to road work. But I spent almost 5 hours to Vacaville, about 60 kilometers from start point, much time than expected. And the “memorize, before I turn” game was not going to over.

It was weekend, I can only reserve a hotel two days before with reasonable price and adequate score in south San Francisco. It seemed to me that I can't make to there. And since use public transportation(the ferry) was one of the plan, why not take advantage of it to cut the cycling distance I jumped on the bus from Fairfield, than took subway to my destination. The bus has something to protect the bicycle in the luggage bay. And the driver was helpful. Finally relieved.

Several bikerhiker campsites along highway 1, the Pacific ocean. I plan to overnight and make them as the destination for each of coming day. Hope everything is going to be fine.

7/29 南舊金山--半月灣州立海灘
7/30 半月灣--日落州立海灘

夏天的加州海灘清晨,就像冬天的淡水,薄霧加細雨。

平流霧,這裡的生成原因是海邊的冷濕空氣,被來自內陸,海拔較高的暖乾空氣壓制,哪裡也去不了(暖空氣在上,冷空氣在下,無法對流)。正午的日照促進空氣對流,會讓海邊露出些許陽光,或是道路蜿蜒至距離大海有些海拔之處,乍現蔚藍海岸。

到美墨邊界的海岸道路,舊金山到Monterey沒有太多路段行在海灘。農田與城鎮,幾乎構成所有路段。公路1號(海岸公路)在人口密集的城鎮會被單車禁行的高速公路取代,幸好這些時候多有自行車道可跟隨,如Marina到Monterey這段幾乎20英里的自行車道幾乎平行於高速公路,或是在單車車道上穿越繁忙的市區。

州立海灘(state beach)的單車客/健行者(biker/ hiker campsites)提供適當的過夜場所,這種營地在太平洋沿岸三州可以發現(Oregon, Washington, California)。一晚約5-10美金,在人潮擁擠的夏季露營地保證我不必預定就有地方過夜。這些營地也多有投幣式的淋浴間。

稍微討論一下食物,當然不是介紹美式食物。我進餐廳往往有填飽肚子之外的其他目的,如充電。在南舊金山,我經由當地人介紹到中式自助餐(吃到飽)晚餐。一人15.95美金,價格還算合理,它的菜色多樣,包含各式水果與蔬菜,更重要的是它不只只有『美式中國菜-不是炒就是炸。』這頓餐讓我想起內華達乾旱區,這段路的第一天我在艷陽下吞了一個貝果當午餐,太乾了只能配水囫圇吞下。翌日我幸運的找到一棵提供些許涼蔭的灌木吞貝果,再隔天,徹底了解我深陷火焰地獄之中,我決定吃一頓肥死人的平價美式傳統早餐-兩顆蛋,兩條培根,兩片塗抹奶油與果醬的吐司,別忘記還有薯餅,那天我居然ㄧ整路都不用進食,而那天正好是乾旱路最艱難之日,78英里4個隘口。那幾天我幾乎靠希望度日,『水喝到飽』的希望,不用巧克力或能量棒,甚至連午餐都可以省略。

事實上,午餐一直以來都是我行進中可有可無的時刻。身上有兩條跟了快兩個月的巧克力,我想它們已經從食物變成吉祥物。

7/29 South San Francisco--Half moon bay state beach
7/30 Half moon bay --sunset state beach

In summer, the cold moisture air in the seashore, is suppressed by the warm dry air from inland in higher altitude in the central California coastline. Here in the early morning is usually foggy and even drizzled. The sunshine might break the grey sky in the mid noon after the seashore cold air is warmed up and has proper convection. Or the highway wind up to the hill above the fog, where I can have a glance of the clear blue ocean.

Highway number 1 to the border, the first section of my journey on the road is San Francisco to Monterey, busy street and farms are the most common scenery instead of the Pacific. The highway is even bicycle prohibited in some sections in cities, and I have to detour. But bike paths or on-street bike lanes are often found in these section, nearly 20 miles of bike path from Marina to Monterey parallels with the highway for example.

Biker/hiker campsites could be found along the Pacific coast, not only California, but Oregon and Washington. These campsites guarantee me a place to overnight without a reservation in the busy summer. It's 5-10 dollars, usually attached with a coin-operated shower room.

Let me talk about the food. I go into a restaurant is usually for something other than food, charge the cellphone for example. I had a Chinese buffet in south San Francisco, where a local recommended it. They have choices of cuisine, and most important, several choices of fruit and vegetables could be found there. And they don't only have “American Chinese cuisine, fried or deep fried. And the buffet brought me the lunchtime in the arid Nevada, on a shadeless plain where I “swallowed” the bagel with water, simply because it was too dry.

I found some taller bushes provided some shades for swallowing the bagel on the next day. Then I understood that I am in the middle of kind of flame hell and to swallow the bagel shouldn't compose a pleasant lunchtime. So I had a full-of-energy traditional North American breakfast(2 bacons, toasts applied butter and jelly, and hashbrowns) on the 3rd day in my arid region journey, and I didn't have to eat in the tough day, 78 miles with 4 passes.

I merely rode on hope instead of energy sticks in the arid Nevada, the hope of “all I could drink water is ahead.” In fact, I don't eat much on my cycling daytime, two chocolate sticks even follow me almost 2 months, I think they are mascots instead of food.
