Richardson Grove to Westport KOA, then Van Damme State Park, then Fort Bragg

Today we have to ride over the highest hill on the entire route: about 2000 feet.  We’ve had a fairly rubbish night as the hiker-biker site is very small, and there were quite a few of us in it, so it was noisy, and we were driven into our tents early because of the flaming […]

Burlington Campground to Richardson Grove

We’re leaving the Redwoods park today, but we’ll be camping in another grove tonight.  So we max out on the log attractions, including a drive-through tree.     And a house made out of a single log.  Sheesh.     We strike out into open country, still following the Eel River.     We leave […]

Fortuna to Burlington Campground

No particular rush today, so we get up and cycle into town for breakfast, which we have here. Not in the guns and ammo place, but in the Hot Brew.  Very nice too, especially the blueberry pancakes.  Then we split up: Diane buys food in Safeway, and I cycle up the road to buy a […]

Eureka to Fortuna

Up late as we’re not going far, and we watch the day’s Tour de France stage live on the box.  We leave at about 10:30: it’s kind of grizzly and overcast again.  During the early part of the ride we hit 1000 miles ridden on Diane’s bike computer.  According to the gps, we’ve done about […]

Eureka KOA to Eureka

Well, we had decided to have a rest day, but we didn’t want to spend it listening to US 101.  So, we get up late and drift on into Eureka itself, about 4 miles, and have brunch at The Chalet, a typical American diner-type place.  The breakfast was marvellous, and we were ready for it. […]

Elk Prairie Campground to Eureka KOA

We decide on another long day to get us to Eureka for a rest day, so we’re on the road by 8:30.  Diane is up at 6:00 to look for Elk, but again there aren’t any around.     On the way out, though, we do see one, peeking out from the tall grass.  Only […]

Jedediah Smith State Park to Elk Prairie Campground

Getting off the route has left us with a big day to get us to our next state park, Elk Prairie.  There are two massive hills in the way, and we also have to ride back to the route at Crescent City, so all in all it’s about 46 miles.  Here’s Crescent City, from about […]

Harris Beach State Park to Jedediah Smith State Park

We’re off to Jed Smith State Park today.  It’s off the route, but a couple staying at the camp recommended it.  Off in the rain with the tent wet again.  Over the California border, where we’re waved through the fruit and vegetable check without stopping.     The rain continues off and on, and there’s […]

Gold Beach to Harris Beach State Park

It’s raining when we get up, so we go out for breakfast and then procrastinate until we reach the hour of checking out, and have to leave the motel.     We have to go up a big hill, and once over the top, so to speak, the weather perks up and it becomes quite […]
