From Ride Leader Paul Goodacre:

Fri June 8 through Sun June 10 we'll be doing a ride to Northern California that will cover a lot of fantastic roads and take in much spectacular scenery.

Day 1: Bay Area to Chester via the Delta, Cherokee Rd and the Feather River Canyon (with a lunch stop at everybody's favorite riverside watering hole in Belden City). Overnight in charming Chester.

Day 2: Chester to Eureka via Mt Lassen and possibly Burney Falls with a brief pause for a photo opp at Bumpass Hell or the falls. Lunch in Cottonwood. Then cross Hwy 5 and west via some little-known county roads to connect to Hwy 36 at Platina (one of the classic Northern California motorcycling roads) and out to the coast in Fortuna, the last leg about 12 miles north on Hwy 101 to spend the night in Eureka at the Eureka Inn, which, although it isn't actually where they filmed "The Shining", does a good job as a substitute. We'll dine lavishly at the Sea Grill.

Day 3: (the enthusiast's version) The Lost Coast!! A tortuous detour from Hwy 101 to the coast with a stop-off at the Honeydew Store for tire-kicking etc. South on 101 to Leggett where we'll pick up Hwy 1 west through the woods to the coast, staying on Hwy 1 south before heading inland on Hwy 128 through Philo and Boonville, connecting to Hwy 101 in Cloverdale. There are variations for those who want more or less riding on day 3.

I've done this ride several times and always enjoyed it immensely. Be there or be square!
