Trinity-Mt. Veeder Rd.

November 12, 2018 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.5

The road condition is like Trinity rd. But it it does get a lot better about 3/4 of mile in. It's definitely worth doing especially if you came up Trinity rd. this far.

Great mix of terrain. Tight twisties with straights on Hwy One. Watch out for bark, branches, and fallen rock from the hill side.

lots of sight seeing, great for beginners to advanced. Small little cafe in the middle always some bikers to shoot the shit with. Fast passed sweeping bends (beware of debri in the road for the first 3+miles) gradually builds into tight switch backs. 3/4 are some straight to really open the bike but beware of the police presence in livermore.

Twisty galore. Pretty bumpy in sections. A little more throttle smooths out the bumps.
Road types: coast, mountains, canyons, summits.

Tahoe ride : Reno - Incline Village - South Lake Tahoe
CA - Sonoma/Napa/Yolo/Sac... > California > United States > America
April 9, 2016 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

This ride is best done not on days when everyone wants to go to the lake, or you will be spending more time at lights than is ideal.
Also, it is MUCH more enjoyable when there is no construction.

From Mammoth lakes through Yosemite the road gets more curvy and thrilling. Highway 108 is my all time favorite Californian road, closed in winter it is a mountain roller coaster for motorcycles.

Palo Alto to Pescadero

November 26, 2015 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

It is a very nice week-end ride, lots of turns, ups and downs, with some great scenery amongst the sequoias. You will be sharing the road with cyclists on Page Mill mostly. Alpine Rd will require your attention. I suggest leaving from Palo Alto or 280 toward the ocean; you'll enjoy a drink or a meal in Pescadero, then up or down the coast.

Pretty fun day trip, gone a few times and hardly seen any cops. Have to go early in the morning to beat the traffic.

Tunitas Creek, Skyline to Hwy 1
CA - Sonoma/Napa/Yolo/Sac... > California > United States > America
June 22, 2015 - 2 star route rating Motorcycle Road2.0

I rode this from Skyline west to Hwy 1, basically downhill...and it is a steep grade! I likely would have enjoyed it more going uphill. While the pavement is OK, there isn't much of it...no center line \"goat trail\". Lots of blind corners as this is cut out of the mountainside. Expect to stay in 1st gear unless your bike is geared super low. Also, this area is notorious for fog/mist...would NOT recommend riding unless it is warmer and sunny. I've only ridden this once and next time I will go the other direction....so my rating could go up. It does beat getting stuck in Hwy 84 traffic!

Empire Grade, top to bottom

June 21, 2015 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

This is a great alternative to Hwy 9 for a few reasons. 1) Very little traffic. 2) Hwy 9 is closed and detour is to Hwy 17. I rode this going north to south so basically down hill. It has some steep areas but is still very user friendly. There are some straight sections in the middle which allow you to pass any cars IF there are any. It is not super technical so a pretty good two up road, but quite enjoyable. Leads you right into UCSC. Nice ride!
