Seattle to Grand Ronde: The Plan

After finding suckers to ride with, I began planning. I wanted to ride down the coast rather than inland, but didn't think we had time to go all the way around the Olympic Peninsula. So I decided to take a ferry from Seattle to Bremerton, cut across to the coast, then head south. I planned on doing anywhere from 35 to 85 miles per day.

Here is the planned itinerary. All page numbers are from Kirkendall & Spring, _Bicycling the Pacific Coast_, 2nd Edition, The Mountaineers, 1990.
