ContentsLODGING From Monterey to Gorda the views are spectacular, but so are the hills. The area we liked the most was Big Sur. The north of San Diego also tempted us to stay for a while. Good weather, good beaches and a camping in a prime spot in Encinitas were enough reasons to convince us to stay longer. About the traffic… California is set up for the cyclist. There are lots of bike paths and the drivers normally give you enough room when they pass by. Downtown L.A. and Laguna Beach were the only spots where we found cycling risky. * Costs in american dollars (USD) cloud-downloadCLICK HERE to Download our FREE Quick Starter Guide to Bicycle Touring ON THE BIKE Total: 24 Days Days cycling: 19 Days Days resting: 5 Days Total pedalled: 1229Kms (763mi) Kms/day: 51.2Kms (31.8mi) Kms/days of cycling: 64.7Kms (40.2mi) Total Spent: 370.76 USD Average spent per day: 15.45 USD Average spent per person per day: 7.22 USD LODGING Total Spent: 132 USD Average spent per day: 5.50 USD Average spent per person per day: 2.25 USD FOOD Total Spent: 211.86 USD Average spent per day: 8.83 USD Average spent per person per day: 4.42 USD OTHERS Total Spent: 46 USD Average spent per day: 1.91 USD Average spent per person per day: 0.95 USD Our daily budget for the trip is 25 USD per day for both of us.
