Eventually, Highway 1 climbs up to and joins Highway 135 going south. These two highways separate in a couple of miles and the ACA route (and judging by all the writing on the road several other organized rides) takes the 135 to Harris Grade Road into Lompoc. But, my host for the night had convinced me to take Highway 1 into Lompoc.
It is a bit odd climbing up the ramp to Highway 1 as there are several "wrong way" messages painted onto the road. This section of Highway 1 has a good shoulder but is four lanes, high speed, and right next to the Vandenberg Air Force Base.
I was getting tired and hungry so I pulled off the road to have a bite and rest a bit. The fence was plastered with warning signs prohibiting entry into the Air Force Base.
I rode along Highway 1, which is quite lumpy, all the way to the entrance of the Base, where it takes a sharp left turn. The road from the Base to Lompoc had a very bumpy shoulder. It looked like someone had driven some very heavy vehicles on it and I had to pay attention to what I was riding over.
