If you're retired and have the time, try taking the Route 1 bus down to Dana Point Harbor or San Clemente. That'll let you see the route and give you an idea of what to expect. Get off in Dana Point, check out the harbor area, have some lunch, then ride the bus back to Seal Beach. I don't thing you'll find many issues you haven't faced before - PCH gets narrow though Laguna Beach and San Clemente (called El Camino Real down there), but its no different than navigating through Sunset Beach and the Mariner's Mile and CdM areas of Newport beach. Also note that PCH gets a lot busier in the summer months. I used to ride the Route 1 bus up to CSULB (decades ago!) but have not been on it since then. Also note that if you ride a bicycle back from south OC you'll be riding into the prevailing winds - they typically start mid-morning and get heavier (anywhere from 10 - 20 mph) in the late afternoon.
