Bear issues in PCH campgrounds?


Should I be worried about bears in the various campgrounds along the PCH route? I've seen all the various links to *what* to do but I'm wondering if anyone has had any bear encouters at all while cycling down the CA coast - how real is the threat, should I make sure I pack some bear spray and hang my food every single night, or is it really rare that there are problems in those areas?

I think it is pretty much a remote possibility.  I've never heard of any bear issues along PCH.

Pretty much non-existent. CA parks provide food lockers so the bears and the raccoons won't rip into your tent - that's mostly what they're interested in. Bears are interested in your food, not you.
