All the years I lived in Ventura I never rode my bike up the 1 to San Francisco. For me this was definitely a highlight of the trip. WE rode up the 101 to SLO and then jumped over to 1 in Morro Bay. Unreal how clean the water looks compared to So. cal beaches. Water is still freaking freezing. Anyways if you ever get the chance just make a crazy trip hit the 1 up and get ready for some scenery and some serious switch backs.
