Make for the coast

A whole mileFirst down to Pescadero’s Coastways Farm, for music and food with old time musicians David Bradley and Randle Lundquist (Empty Bottle Boys, Bayou Swamis).

Then up to Arcata to see Repete Lewendal and Monika Rosika, Robin Hashem and her daugher Claire.  Pete  drove me out to one of the most beautiful back roads I’ve ever been on.
I want to get my pals out to ride this on bikes” he said over the odd noises coming from the engine of his Ford F-U 100.  It’s been over twenty years since I’ve jounced along a bench seat in a truck, evicting a brace of gracious canines to the chilly truck bed.
I could tell, since it was a 2.5 hour drive on the Kneeland Rd/Pacific Lumber Road, a lot of it dirt, that this would be at least a five hour very hilly ride. But no cars! Only fools in trucks showing off their land.

  1. Jacquie, We ride our bikes on all the backroads and have had some great adventures. I have posted some of these rides on my blog northcoastbikerides.blogspot.com One of the most epic is Shower’s Pass which has about 40 miles of gravel and 12000 feet of mainly car fee riding. The clothing company used Showers Pass for its name for its awesome rain jackets.

  2. Hi Jacquie, I just love the photograph of the coast it looks absolutely divine. I don’t get to see the sea nearly enough. My own fault, too busy dancing!
