Highway 1 between San Francisco and LA
« on: April 08, 2011, 11:58:09 AM »
I am considering biking from SF to LA this coming fall. Apparently it is a popular route and I am sure it must be very scenic. But how is it by bicycle? It seems like it may not be as much fun when done on a bicycle considering that it is only a two-lane road with probably a lot of tourist traffic more interested in looking at the vistas than paying attention to bicycles on a windy road. Did any of you bike that road? Am I right? If so, I may consider smaller inland roads. No beaches there but it looks like there are plenty of nice national parks. Any thoughts?
