I reposted this from the Southern California region section:
Hello, this is my first post on this forum, so I apologize if this is the wrong section.
Anyways, I am planning a ride from San Luis Obispo to Long Beach for this Wednesday, and could use some route advise. This will my first ride of this length (I have never done over about 65 miles before), so we will try and take it slow (3 or 4 days)... Well here is the route I have so far:
The sections I am concerned about right now is the stretch between Santa Maria and Santa Barbara: should I take the Lompoc route or follow the 101?
Also, the section between Carpenteria and Ventura: should I take Hwy 1 or the Lake Casitas route?
I am mainly looking for the quickest, but also safe route.
Any help is super appreciated!!
