Highway 120 to 49, 20 to Highway 101: Death Valley to Yosemite, Sonora, Napa over the Golden Gate Bridge to Big Sur
If you are planning on taking your bike out to California, here is a route I think you will like. The scenery is beautiful and there are many sights to see along the way. Death Valley - This ride is different and hot (watch out for the sand storms). Take Rt. 190 to 395. It is a beautiful ride on Rt. 120 to Yosemite National Park. From there, you can take Rt. 120 to Rt. 49 to Sonora. There are a lot of twisty roads and it is a beautiful ride. From Sonora to Ukiah, take Rt. 49 to Rt. 20. Then from Ukiah, take RT. 101 to Rt. 128 to Calistoga. In Calistoga, you can enjoy mud baths and natural hot steam water. Napa Valley is a very great ride around wine country. Take Rt. 29 to Rt. 121 out of Napa Valley to Rt. 101. Going over the Golden Gate Bridge is a must do! Take Rt. 37. Pick up Rt. 1 to go down the Big Sur. It's a ride you'll never forget!
