During our visit to the Northern coast of California, we did not get to ride our bicycles. There was no place to pedal on other than Highway 1 where the two-way, two-lane road was narrow, winding, and had very little or no shoulder. To avoid tourists, the locals would drive on the side roads which we didn't want to ride on either because it was just as dangerous. Even though there were quite a few bicyclists on Highway 1 (with touring bags), we decided it wasn't worth the risk of losing our lives to do the same.
After we came back from our trip, John and I took a short bike ride to this quiet area.
