Hey all. I'm going to be riding my bike up to San Francisco from Santa Cruz this coming Monday. I planned on just taking Hwy 1 all the way up, but was wondering if anyone knew of any roads that run parallel that are less congested with cars. My main concern is the hilly section around Pacifica where there is little to no shoulder.
If there are alternative routes with less wind and cars, but are longer, I'm all hears. What do you guys think?
Has anyone done this ride going either direction? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
