    My 18 year old bike enthusiast (who road cross country last summer) wants to take the family (14 year old brother and 50 something’s mom and dad) on a trip from San Jose to Los Angeles. I’ve read about the route and we bought the ac maps, but it seems that the route is highway 1 where there is fog, traffic and logging trucks? Ugh! Seems a little dangerous to me and difficult! Not wanting to ruin her great idea, but i wonder if this is a bad idea? I have not seen any bike tour companies advertise this route. Is that because it is just too dangerous or difficult or foggy? Thanks.

  1. Your step by step information is too good.i just bookmarked it….
