The freeway and multi-lane sections are the drag - the "means to an end", but give me a route with a mix of two lane pavement, one lane pavement, and double track dirt, and I will likely have a great time.
So many great rides between SC and SF are entirely paved (although I was bummed when they paved over Lobitos Creek Road - one of the last pieces of through dirt in the area...) But, yes, the truly great adventures involve hours
of riding away
from the urbanized bay to get to the open and legal
