Seeking advice for routes SF to Medford area
Planning a little solo adventure starting from Ventura to the Medford area. I am planning on heading up thru big sur to the bay then once past SF, it is all foreign to me.
If anyone has any cool tracks or routes I would be super grateful! I'm heading up to catch a paragliding competition and someone (thankfully) will be hauling my gear up there.
Looking for dirt, twistys, and some not to be missed spots or camping spots if possible. I'm scouring the net and other people's tracks but haven't found much yet.
Any help would be awesome! If you want to join up as well, the more the merrier! (I may be able to get you a tandem paragliding flight as well ; )
Dates are 6/25-7/2

After you cross the Golden Gate Bridge, there are a couple cool things to see/taste in the Petaluma-Point Reyes area. Out in the estero, Drakes Bay Oyster Company has huge delicious oysters. They may be closed by the time you are in the area, however, due to a court case to return the land to wilderness. On the Petaluma side, Lagunitas Brewery has a bunch of good beers on tap. My favorite so far are the SF Fusion and the Fusion 14. Fusion 16 doesn't really fit the name, since it has nowhere near the hops implied by the name. There is a $60 motel a few doors down.
There are a few dirt roads along your route that lead from the coast to Hwy 101, but I would chose the coastal route every time through there.

I have mixed feelings about Hwy 1 north of
Generally when I go that way, I zig zag my way up the coast on back roads but it takes a lot of time to do this.
About 38 miles north of
Usal Road off of Hwy 1 is a, usually, easy dirt road which intersects
Shelter Cove is worth a visit.

I've got to be cool
Take a long long ride on my motor bike
Untill I'm ready
