Two of my friends, Kharon & Holly, were celebrating their half-century birth days and invited some friends to join them in Little River (near Mendocino) at the Andiron Lodge for a weekend of fun and frivolity. I decided to ride since the weather was looking good and I wanted to do a little reserach for the Manchester ride... plus there were some roads I hadn't ridden in a long time and wanted to check out again. So I left early on Saturday and slabbed it over to Hwy. 1, Panoramic Hwy, and then Ridgecrest Drive along the top of Mt. Tamalpais... it was cool and quite breezy but the views were stellar... http://tinyurl.com/d4dm56g Oh yeah... :) Ridgecrest dives deep into the redwoods and meets up with Fairfax-Bolinas Rd... Lake Alpine Scooted along Sir Francis Drake Blvd. and a few Marin backroads... the entire weekend was blessedly either free of traffic or well-behaved drivers who used the turnouts they way they're supposed to use them! Platform Bridge Rd. Chileno Valley Rd. Popped back out onto Hwy. 1 and stopped for a break in Tomales, a popular stop for motorcyclists... As I chatted with a couple of gents, we watched a stream of Corvettes go by... they had been passing by for a good 20-30 minutes in groups of 10-20... saw them later farther north on 1 in a beach parking lot... looked to be at least 100 all different models, years, and colors... very pretty!
