Hwy 1

It's a 70 km ride on Hwy 1 from Fort Bragg to the intersection with Hwy 101. There are rollers along the coast. Before you get to Rockport you need to climb a 250 m hill. Then you turn inland and need to climb the coastal ridge - that's another almost 600 m in elevation.

I rode the section from Branscomb Rd to Usal Rd (dirt) as part of a long-distance cyclocross tour in May 2007. Traffic was very light on highway.
