Hey, I'm thinking of doing a loaded tour down the coast this summer, then taking Amtrak back home.
So, if I make it all the way to Santa Monica along the coast, how easy/safe/wise is it to ride from there to the LA Amtrak station? The thought of riding my bike in L.A. scares me! Google maps will give me a route, but I have no idea what that route might be like.
I'm interested to hear what the locals have to say.
In return, I'll tell you all about riding in Portland, if you'd like!
