Sausalito to Los Angeles HWY 1
« on: June 11, 2010, 03:26:37 am »
June 24th I ride South out of Sausalito across the Golden Gate Bridge and down Highway 1 to Los Angeles, actually all the way home, to Ontario. I am going with a group of 4 other guys. We all are riding fixed gear, and camping along the way. Planing on average 80-90 miles a day. I have read a few ride reports, even of fixed gear rides of this route. If anyone has done this here on a fixed gear I would love to know your chainring, cog sizes. I thought of even running a dingle cog, or two. Also any updates as to particularly bad parts of road which should be avoided, using an alternate route, or any other info that might be helpful. Thanks alot and Happy Safe Riding to all!

I rode down the route in early May -- Sausalito to Huntington Beach, then inland.  I followed the Adventure Cycling Pacific Coast Route.  It is largely Hwy1, but does divert here and there when appropriate.  Road conditions were geneally good but there were a couple of major road repairs going on in Monterey County, just south of Lucia.  One-way traffic in effect.  I timed my lunch wrong and spent about 30 minutes waiting for them to allow southbound traffic to proceed. :)  Other than that, it was fairly smooth sailing.  Can't help with the fixed-gear stuff.
