The PCH, Route 1, Pacific Coast Highway – a slice of America like no other. From the remote, wet, pine forests of Washington and the Canadian borders to the year round sunshine of cosmopolitan San Diego and the Mexican border, we’ll see just about every type of coastline imaginable – urban, remote, sandy, densely wooded, cliffs.
We start our 1800 mile journey through 3 states in Seattle and make our way south along the strikingly beautiful coast. Ocean Shores, Newport and Gold Beach are directly at the ocean, where a Pacific Coast tour is supposed to be. We pass through the state of Oregon, enter California and ride the Avenue of the Giants, a scenic road lined with giant Redwood Trees, on our way to Shelter Cove. In Bodega Bay we’re looking for winged attackers at the old Potter School House; Alfred Hitchcock couldn’t have found a more suitable place for his 1963 movie ‘The Birds’.
A little further south, the city of San Francisco is waiting and we enter in style by riding our motorcycles across Golden Gate Bridge.
Our ride down Highway 1 continues along the breathtaking coastline of Big Sur which leads us to the central coast and into Southern California. Los Angeles is our last stop before we take ourselves on a quest for the wave: Southern California’s beach towns are waiting and it’s time to show off your surfing skills in Surf City USA, Huntington Beach. Not too far down the road, passing through further famous beach towns of ‘The O.C.’, we reach our final destination, San Diego.
