    Ha! I'm at 700 ft. elevation so I'm not worried about sea level rise!

    Always enjoy your ride reports, and they always make me want to ride those roads. Some are familiar, some not. :beer

    Thank you. Yes, the Stewart's Point Store is an oasis of tasty calories along that stretch of coast!

    Great Report. I absolutely love riding on 128 between Napa and Winters. I have been wanting to take 128 towards the ocean, your ride report is the encouragement I needed. Cheers

    Thanks EMFL, I'd recommend riding 128 end to end, from Winters all the way up through Boonville to it's end at the Pacific Coast Hwy. (or the reverse direction). The 159 mile route transitions from dry inland valleys to deep dark coastal redwoods. Light traffic for the most part, stunning scenery and really fun twisty riding. From the coast head south and return via one of several routes like Philo-Greenwood Rd., Mountain View, Skaggs Springs, or just take 1 all the way back to the bay area. Here's one I did a while back-
