Cycling San Diego to Panama

From January 26, 2014 to April 9, 2014, we rode our tandem bicycle from San Diego, CA to Panama City, Panama. Along the way, we discovered many bicycle routes: some of them were superb and some “necessary evils.” On this page, I’ll attempt to group the superb routes so you can perhaps design your own (smaller) journey on just the highest quality routes. Also, I’ll catalog most of the good stories, regardless of whether or not they were on a good route, for your entertainment.
