ok, come the first week of July, I'm gonna have 3-4 days to ride roads I've never seen... only constraint is I'm starting from Santa Cruz, and I have to end up on route 4 near Ebbets Pass. I'm going to be camping off my beemer.... Was sort of thinking of heading up the coast towards Fortuna, then taking 36 across to Red Bluff... How accessible is the Sinkyone area? is Usal Rd -> Kenny -> Kings Peak -> 211/Mattole Rd -> Capetown ridable on a road bike (beemer r1100rs if you care) ? I like bad roads and don't mind 20-30 miles of hard pack dirt road on occasion as long as its not soft/loose sand/gravel (I am on an RS with MeZ4's, after all)... Given a choice of 36 or 299 between the coast and I-5, which would you chose and why? So, now I'm near Red Bluff or Redding... should I take 36 to Susanville, or 299 up towards Adin then down 139?
