Mattole Road on bikes

If you’re not out enjoying one of the bazillion things happening in Humboldt County on this near end-of-summer Saturday, watch SelfPropelledDevo and friend ride the Mattole Road as they tour the Lost Coast.  The bikers fared better than a camper trailer that overturned on the notoriously steep and windy road.

Day 2.

    Good morning Larry and friends. Have you seen James Faulk around recently?

    How far are these guy riding? The one guy looks geared up to make it to Canada . . .Do you really need two spare tires to make the Lost Coast from Eureka?

    I’ve done the loop over the Lost Coast several times on motorcycles and it’s always thrilling. I can’t imagine trying to ride it on a bicycle!

    One of my favorite drives in Humboldt County. I’m too old to do it the way these guys are, but thanks for the great views. Meet you on the road.

    Many cyclists on this road are incredibly rude. Year after year, they callously take up half the road and create hazardous situations for the locals who have to use the road in their daily lives. They act like they own the road when they’re on it. I cycle in town frequently, and I rarely see cyclists behaving so badly. Basically I have come to feel strongly that people should not bicycle on this road; it is very dangerous for everyone.
