Sorry I won't be able to meet you-I won't be coming down until most likely the day before Thanksgiving, after your visit to Alice's... If you are near Alice's make sure you hit up Hwy 84, Pescadero, Bonny Doon, Gazos Creek, Jameson Creek, Boulder Creek etc. Great day ride from SF to Alice's along Skyline/Hwy 35 to the coast via some of those backroads. But that's just my opinion...let me know if you want any specific suggestions. As far as between SF and LA-I have only one idea-make sure you stop in Clovis. Have fun, ride safe, enjoy CA.
