for 84 west trips, try this next time:
sandhill road out of menlo park/palo alto, continue over 280 turn right on old la honda road, continue this up to skyline, you can continue over skyline and this will take you a eventually back onto 84, or take a left and head south on skyline, then take a right where it meets pagemill road, this will be alpine road. continue west on alpine it forks and you stay right to continue on alpine. This is super twisty big redwood roads. this will dump you at the junction of apline and pescardero road, you will veer left to go on pescardero road. Following that into the town of pescardero and stage road. Stop and get a fresh bread sandwich at the store (Arcancheli's (sp) ) on stage road then take stage road north. This will take you back to 84 near the san gergorio genral store, get sasparilla and watch the silly bicycles go by. The take 84 back up to alices and stop again for a bowl of chilli (ride to eat, eat to ride). hop on skyline north and hang a right on kings mountain road (pause to look left at tunias creek (another fun road down to the coast). this will drop you off down in woodside. left back on 84 and however home.
more corners than should be allowed, normally little to no traffic (apart from 84) and lots of great views. Bring a layer as it gets chilly on the coast and in the shade of the trees.
