Written Directions

Begin in Oceanside and simply cruise south along the coast down to Pacific Beach through La Jolla.

Scenery

This is the same route of the 'Beach Cities 101 Cruise' you can get the route map online. Begin anywhere along this route and you will enjoy a blast from the past. It is one of the most beautiful roads in the world. There is not a bad time of year to make this ride. You'll have Pacific Ocean views the whole way as you cruise through seven Classic California Beach Communities. These Beach cities will take you from funky to sophisticated and you'll see countless Historic buildings and bridges along the highway. Check out the Del Mar Race Track.

Drive Enjoyment

Tourism Opportunities

A rock solid 5 for roadside amenities as you'll be amazed at the number of sidewalk cafes, unique eateries and the classic 101 Cafe. Shopping of just about any product, including plenty of Bike Shops. Cruise to a Pier at either Oceanside or Pacific Beach if you want to enjoy the Beach.

I disagree. This is a great ride for a group that is in no hurry to get anywhere fast. It's a road the the pilot can safely look around at the view and enjoy the ride without all the adrenaline. A lot of ammenities and places to visit. The weather is usually nice year round too. If you're 20 years old and just wanna go fast on the twisties, then NO this isn't your ride.

This is a cool route if you are new to California and would like to ride along the ocean... but no means one of the better routes in the area. Lots of stuff to do if you want to spend a full day hanging out. Expect lots of cars and people... and lots of stop and go traffic.

The OG poster saying this is one of the greatest motorcycle roads is a bit of a stretch. It's a high traffic, straight road with lots of signals that runs along the Southern California Coast... and not even through the really good scenery parts. If you've never been in California before and you find yourself in the San Diego area with only 1 day to ride a motorcycle somewhere and it's been a life long dream to ride on PCH, then, maybe, do this road. Outside of that, there's about 1,000 better places to ride.
