San Clemente - Avenida Pico & Avenida Vista Hemosa
Just wondering how safe they are for riding.
Pico is crowded from the high school west
Hermosa is reletively open.
As the above poster mentioned, Pico is very crowded where it crosses the I-5. It has no bike lane and there are freeway style on/off ramps. Hermosa has high speed traffic, but there is a wide bike lane However, the eastbound lanes are closed at one point because they are being used as a construction staging area. Also, Hermosa is not a though street to Pico/PCH. The road is built, but it is fenced off.

Thanks for the info, everyone!
