I'm planning on flying out to California in late October to see a Neil Young concert and visit some friends in LA and SF, etc. I've never been out there before, but a friend suggested maybe doing a bike tour while I'm out there, and ride to SF from LA instead of taking a bus.
I'm having some trouble finding some tour logs online, to see what traffic is like on some of these roads (pacific coast highway, etc.). I've seen some references to a specific signed bike route, but I can't find an official map of this or anything either. I'd seriously consider doing this if I knew I didn't have to stress out over traffic or getting lost, or finding places to stay.
If I was to do this ride, it would be a self-supported tour and I don't think I'd be spending money to sleep places along the way (Even if I wanted to, I wouldn't be able to afford it.. saving up for a European bike tour maybe). I have no clue if there are places on this route for "stealth-camping" or what some of the people are like, and if they'd be open to having me put up a tent in their yard, etc.
So yeah, it's nothing I have my heart set on, but it's something that if it's worth doing, I figure I should do it while I'm out there!
Anyways, I'd be curious to hear what you guys/girls have to say about this! Thanks!
