The first ten or twelve miles from Crescent City through the redwoods were the definition of harrowing. No shoulder, tight curves, heavy fog, traffic.
Equipment note! We got rid of our camping equipment in Bandon, Oregon. We just weren't using it. Every night we asked ourselves this question: Should we ride an extra 5 to 10 miles down this steep road to see if there's a campsite available so that we can stand around and make dinner in the freezing wind, or should we get a motel room in town?
It was amazing how much nicer it was to ride without it.
