The 101 south of crescent city
« on: July 02, 2015, 12:46:37 pm »
We met someone near avenue of the giants that suggested taking a bus over the hill just south of crescent city (we are heading north before cutting across Oregon and heading cross country). What do you think about that hill? What's the shoulder like for biking? Is it safe or is the bus a good option? While you're at it, what are the worst parts of the 101? We just did the 101 just south of orick and found it pretty harrowing!  Thanks.

Bus? Sacrilege! That's downhill for you. It'll be over before you know it. Like all roads, the 101 is better in some spots than others. But this doesn't stand out as a stretch requiring special treatment. The coast is almost always safer southbound, but it's a bit too late for that advice.

Thanks for the reply! we think busses aren't the way to go, but if people chimed in pro bus we were going to consider. We know we are going the "wrong" way, but we had some San Francisco visiting to do, and won't be going north more than another 100 miles or so.
