The event is a bike tour from San Francisco to Santa Monica.
We will be stopping to rest, sleep at around every 80 km or less and bike trough highway 1. We will be trying to start bike early to get in the next city at noon or a little after and that way we would have time to explore each region and the local attractions.
I did reservations in hotels and hostel. I tried to find the cheap and with decent quality.
It is below the list of cities and accommodations. It is welcome suggestions or couch-surfing for the cities below.
24 miles for the first day, It will be a easy bike day and we leave SF morning and we will be at next stop noon or before.
Sept 2 - HI-Point Montara Lighthouse Hostel
- visiting Point Montara Light Station
- it is a state park so arriving there at noon We will have lots of time to go walk and go to the beach.
Today we will be doing around 60 miles to Santa Cruz.
Sept 3 - Santa Cruz - HI - Santa Cruz, USA

I still try to find cheap accommodation

I did a reservations for me already but I am open to change accommodations or city to stop. Any ideas and suggestion are super welcome.
Also have the price for the accommodation that I will be paying. It is $ 564 for 10 nights. So it is not too bad and we do not have to carry any camping gear on the bike.
