I am interested in riding from Orange County, California to San Diego thru the Pacific Coast Highway. Could any of you people who do or have done this ride recently please let me know how you continue after you get to the end of the Coast Highway in San Clemente? Where do you end in San Clemente, and where do you ride thru to connect Oceanside and then onward to San Diego?
I have been told by someone at my LBS to catch the 5 Freeway in San Clemente and ride until you get to Oceanside, whence you continue on the PCH to San Diego.
I absolutely do not want to ride on the 5 Freeway, if I can help it.
My interest is in going on early Saturday or Sunday Morning rides to San Diego, spending the rest of the day there, then catching AMTRAK trains back to Orange County.
Does anybody have a riding route(s) that does not include any Freeway?
