Planning my first trip to California
« on: July 08, 2016, 05:36:22 pm »
Hi everyone, I'm planning next summer make my first trip along the pacific ocean route running the San Francisco, CA to Santa Barbara, CA. I've heard that this is one of the most outstanding routes to discover marine wildlife, big trees, big waves and beautiful beaches.

We had made some other trips but none like this one, so I'm asking for some advises if someone of have taken this route before. A friend told me to first took a shuttle to lax to get our bikes with us, and then get to Santa Barbara to start our adventure.

This is what we are planing to roll, we have almost a year to make it real, but first we want to collect all the information we can about safety and places to stay on our way, Also, if somebody know a easy and cheaper way to get we will appreciate your advice.

Thanks a lot, I hope coincide with any of you in any way  "

I would advise starting in San Francisco.  Wind tends to come from the northwest so traveling south tends to be more enjoyable.  Besides the road tends to have a better shoulder in the south bound direction.  Depending on whether you intend to camp or stay in hotels you will have plenty of options.  Once you get to Santa Barbara you can take the train to LA and thena bus to the airport.  You could continue to ride from Santa Barbara along the coast all the way to LAX.
