I need a bit of help with a route. I want to ride from San Diego (Point Loma) up to LA (Santa Monica) for the weekend and back in a few weeks for a regatta. I figure leave early Friday and come back Monday morning. Mapquest has it at 133 miles each way so it shouldn't be too bad as it is mostly flat. Getting from Point Loma to Oceanside along the coast is pretty straight forward but after that is a bit of a mystery. How can I get through Pendleton, does anyone know the hours or can I ride the highway shoulder for that section? Once clear of and how do I get through San Ysidro, what is the best route that wont add too many miles on?
Thanks for the help.
