Nerd on a Bike

The Route

Five days, 1000+ miles.

And hey...I went to a lot of trouble to make the map all interactive and zoomy, so play with it a bit. Tracks laid down from my Garmin, so you can zoom in real close to see all my secret spots and pee breaks - more of the latter.

Day One - Pleasant Hill CA to Oroville CA

Hot. Damn hot. Ugly ride on the flats, sweat like a pig. No pics - I'd rather forget it. Arrived at Scot's new remote compound, and he whipped up a mean pork chop, so at least things ended on a bright note.

Day Two - Oroville CA to Trinidad, CA

Hit the road nice and early to avoid the heat. After a bit o' grub in Chico, we were off to Red Bluff to catch Highway 36 to Fortuna, CA. Awesome road...140+ miles of twisties.

On to Trinidad via Samoa Cookhouse loop, with a stop and hike around Trinidad Head.
