I don't have sufficient knowledge of your local area to make a valid
suggestion of route or itinerary for your bicycling trip. However, I suggest
that you contact your local council of the American Youth Hostels. The Los
Angeles Chapter has a special interest group that goes bicycle camping, and
I suspect that the same may well be true of the San Frnacisco Chapter. In
all probability, Sacramento also has a chapter.
I'll also put in an unsolicited plug for American Youth Hostels (AYH) here.
They are a private, non-profit entity that opens and maintains low-cost
lodgings, called "Hostels" for youths and other budget travelers. AYH has
about 270 hostels in the USA, and is a member of International Youth
Hostels, which opens up literally thousands of youth hostels around the
world to the budget traveler.
AYH has organizational annual memberships available at no charge to Boy
Scout and Girl Scout Troops. The cost for lodging is usually on the order of
$10-$12/person/night. This can be a terrific deal if one is touring Los
Angeles, San Diego, or any other high cost city with a Scout Troop.
I hope this is of some assistance to you.
Yours in Scouting,
