One of the most scenic and breath taking routes along the northern California coast. Especially, if you continue and take HWY 1 all the way up through Oregon and WA. Jaw dropping views of the coast and of the Humboldt Redwood Forest. As one of the reviewer stated, best times to ride are in early fall and spring to avoid traffic. The temps are in the 50-60 F, which is perfect for riding. Lots of places to eat and stay.

While in Point Arena, stop at the Zen House Motorcycle Shop to see restored vintage European, Japanese and American motorcycles. Then, walk up the street and stop at the Little Green Bean for a great cup of coffee.

As you ride up north, stop in Mendocino, which is just north of Big River Beach. Tour the shops, and don't forget to drop in to the Harvest Market at Mendosa's for a warm and tasty bowl of clam chowder. Go to the back of the market to the deli section. There you'll see the big silver pot.

The roads are excellent, with lots of variety in elevation and curves. It's a riders dream ride, and at no time will you ever get bored, I promise. California and nature at its best!
