This page covers my planning for a 1000 mile ride in July from Seattle to Portland. Then along the Columbia River to Walla Walla. Up to Coeur D’Alene, Idaho and back along Centennial and Iron Horse Trails to Seattle
Here’s a Streets and Trips file with the detailed route that you can download.
However, what these maps don’t show are bike paths. We are planning to ride the Coeur D’Alene, Centennial, and Iron Horse Trails plus the trail along the Columbia River.
My equipment list for the ride can be downloaded at Slipstream Equipment
Packing the Bike
This is always a challenge, to pack in a stable way and yet have things available when you need them. This year I have new panniers, Jandd Expedition Panniers. They are bigger than anything I have used before (a plus and a minus). The picture shows the panniers on the bike with the tent on the rear rack. Note: the 1 liter water bottles in holders with Velcro straps on the front of the panniers.
