Thanks! This might sound like a stupid question but have you actually biked Highway 395? I really want to do the Peak to Peak bike ride someday (Big Bear to Mammoth).
Naw, that's a reasonable question. I actually picked up the moniker when I opened up a spam email account and the name "Biker" was taken. Instead, they offered "Biker[zip code]", "Biker[the year]" ... all kinds of stuff. But the number 395 means more to me.
That said, I do ride on US 395 when I'm up in the hood. On the Eastern Sierra Double, and the High Sierra Fall Century. Plus I've also done bike trips from Independence to Bishop and the like. As busy as it is, it's still a great place to ride.
