Pacific Coast Inquiry
Hi, I posted this on the Canadian forum recently and received some worthwhile feedback, but then I thunked that you folks are located closer to my point of interest, and are thus more likely to have firsthand experience. So I am posting to both the North West & South West forums:
I am planning a multi-week solo camping ride from Brampton Ontario Canada to visit friends in Vernon, BC this summer, then EITHER ride down through the Rockies in the western states, OR ride along the Pacific coast on Highway 1 from Seattle down to approx San Diego before heading across to Tennessee, the Dragon etc.
My question is re Highway 1. Is the whole coastal highway pretty interesting to ride, or is it primarily the approx 100 mile section called The Pacific Coast Highway down near Carmel. If it is just the latter then I would probably stick to the mountains.
Does anyone have any first hand experience to be able to confirm or advise?
Any help will be appreciated.
