Is Coto De Caza Dr. bikeable?

I was looking into routes in the OC, and thought this might be fun. However, it seems that Coto De Caza Dr. is a gated road. Does anyone have experience with this road? Wikipedia says that Coto De Caza is a gated/guarded community, which sounds a lot like Rolling Hills in Palos Verdes (which I had tried to ride through only to be turned away by the guards at the kiosk).

Yeah, it's gated. Need to be a resident or guest.
(Or, if you don't speak English and show up with a ratty truck and a lawnmower, they'll probably let you in)

That road is bikeable. There are pedestrian gates both on Oso and on Antonio side and you can go through those on your bike. And no, you don't need a $10K bike to ride there. The road itself is nothing remarkable though.
