    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.
