Route notes

The quality of the roads we ride on this trip is very good. Most riding is on quiet side roads, albeit without a shoulder. There are no bike paths and generally light local traffic. The hiking terrain is mild with gradual hills. The trails tend to be wide though often rocky. The heat and sun exposure can make the walking feel more challenging. The kayaking on this trip is easygoing and accessible for most everyone.
