Clipping in isn't that difficult, neither is accelerating. If it is an issue, get better pedals! Those are poor excuses to not stop. There may be a few states, but California isn't one of them.

I've found that drivers tend to get really upset when you don't go when they wave you... how odd a "nice" gesture turns ugly for them so quickly. I've had too many instances of problems to trust them...

I've got 32c tires on my Fuji Cross Comp, and fenders (SKS). Haven't had any issue so far with rocks. I've taken the bike over singletrack without problem.

Daylight Pass was FUN! It was a heck of a climb via Mud Canyon, steeper than the Beatty Cutoff. I didn't get to ride down it, went via Titus Canyon. Ended with a bit over 60 miles and 8400' of climb....

Weather Underground uses NWS forecast models, so pretty much the same thing. They use the NWS zone forecasts too.

Also check the weather forecast and try not to choose a very hot day. I've ridden to Julian before, it is best when it is a lot cooler considering the climbing involved.
