Highway 1

As difficult as it was to tear ourselves away from the hospitality of our friends in Eureka we were happy to get back on the bikes and explore the Northern California coastline. We attempted an alternate route near the Lost Coast but the unrelenting 6 mile climb had me throwing in the towel. The regular route was not a bad runner up since it followed the Avenue of the Giants through California's iconic redwood trees. The Mendocino Coast is spectacular and rugged. Ft Bragg awarded us with brewery #16 in our tour. We were excited to have a couple campsites away from the state parks. We stayed in a beautiful spot in the Point Reyes National Seashore accessible only by foot/bikes and another just across from San Francisco in the Golden Gate Recreation Area. We are enjoying the city and staying with our friend Justin (PCT 08).
