Subject: Northern California Memorial Day ride Sat Jun 05, 2010 6:25 pm
Sorry to hear the Memorial Day wknd ride was canceled. I hope that didn't stop anybody from riding. Anyway I took a different ride just the opposite direction, north. Hwy 36 is one of the best stretch of road you can ride your 2 wheels on in California. From the sign ' Curves 140 miles' all the way to Fortuna you'll be in for a treat, there is something for everyone no matter what your riding style, mine just happens 2b..slow movin . I spent the night in Red Bluff so I can get a fresh start and by 730am the next day I was on my way to Beegum rd, Hwy 36. Let the fun begin! Every trip has its start and for Hwy 36 it has 2b the sign, 'Curves next 140 miles'. The sign gives you the feeling like, 'this is gonna be a long ride', and it is but once you ride it and you get into your 'zone' and your sucking in all those scenery, twisties, open space, endless road, time just seem to slip by and almost all of the sudden it's over. Wow! I'm hungry for more, you say 2yourself. Not 2 worry, there is Hwy 299 to complete your loop back to Redding/Red Bluff. Can you have so much fun riding in 1day? I shot some video using my keychain video camera ($6.99 eBay) it's the one with a date on the bottom right of the screen. I didn't notice my camera re-adjusted while I was riding so half the screen is the road. For a while you might think your watching a Caltrans road survey video but around 6min40sec later my Canon kicks in and saves the day. Enjoy
