For the first time since 1992, due to Grumbler's relocation, Mike's new daughter, and Steve's work, we had to bag the ride altogether. We'll resume the ride for 2004.



Friday, took 85-280-1-35-Great Hwy-101 to North parking lot of Golden Gate Bridge where Dr. Steve joined me. We then rode up 101 to Lucas Valley Road to Hwy 1 and joined George Grenley in Jenner. Next, up to Fort Bragg where Indy was waiting for us. We had grub N suds at North Coast Brewing Co in town. We then rode up to Leggett and did the 101 and Ave of Giants combo to Fortuna's Comfort Inn, and the hot tub. :) We dined at Eel River Brewing Co that nite.

Next morning, we grabbed 101 to Arcata, and cut east on 299 to Willow Creek then 96 north to Somes Bar where we followed Salmon River Rd to the campsite of Mike Plant and Steve Smead. We all rode east to the river, and spent next few hours just hanging out. Late that afternoon, after leaving Mike and Steve, we followed 96-299-101 down to Lost Coast Brewing Co in Eureka, and called it a nite in Fortuna.

Sunday, we followed 36 east to 99, and stopped at Sierra Nevada Brewing Co in Chico before riding home via 99-113-80-680 to the Bay Area.
