The general plan is usually San Francisco South due to winds, traffic concerns etc. I have done it both ways. I admit I prefer riding down from San Francisco. The winds can make one cry (as it has me several times). If you are strong, stubborn and determined you can get through them. Just a suggestion - spend a weekend in SLO or Cambria and ride up HWY 1 - you'll get a taste for the winds. It's been so bad at times walking was easier... just consider riding South, you get those winds pushing you along... at times, I could go miles, fully loaded, without peddaling... just saying... my trips down from SF to OC were done easily in a week. The opposite, I took close to 2 but i did spend some time in Big Sur/Aptos/Santa Cruz.
