Ive been through Covelo a few times,the market has a deli that makes a decent sandwich. There's a dirt road that heads out the north side of town
and goes to either Garberville or veer right to hiway 36 coming out on Van Duzen road,good lunch in Mad River on 36.

From Mad River, Mountain road 1 heads to hiway 299 with dirt roads off of it,Mt Rd 1 itself is 55 miles of uphill/downhill sweepers and hairpins on rough pavemento.

Also there's a dirt road taking off to the right when leaving Covelo towards the coast,it comes out in Laytonville,2 miles to the south of Laytonville there's a sketchy dirt road that comes out by Fort Bragg.
I drug the DR650 out of the shed yesterday,put the knobby tired stock wheels back on it,then rode to Red Bluff and Hogsback road,then to Ponderosa way and Cohassett,nice 85 miles of sliding and bouncing through rocks and gravel. Ishi road looks interesting,lots of offshoot gravel roads heading off Hogsback.

DR is heavy but steady,just chugs it's way along and is a great sightseeing bike,lots of water at Mill Creek,hardly any people out that way in cars.
Some bikes around at times
