This is a great beginner ride. swanton loop has one small climb on it, but it gets a great view from the top. traffic on highway one can be bad, but there is a good shoulder. it is pretty when you get to the furthest point out on highway 1. up until swanton, it is not that pretty. swanton valley can get cold- up to 10*F colder than the coast. so, be prepared when riding in the winter. also, you often get head winds on the coast. but it is still a great, easy ride that people can turn back at any point.
