Ironically, the best section of the
Shoreline Hwy isn’t along the shoreline at all. Sure, when you
think of riding Hwy 1, you think of essing precariously atop
steep cliffs, peering over the crashing surf below. And in fact,
once you stop dipping and climbing off the beaches and waterside
towns north of Cleone, you do get a bit of that on this DH. But
the superb part actually comes when the road moves off the coast
and a sign announces “Narrow Winding Road Next 22 Miles.” This
remote collection of endless S-curves beneath the tall redwoods
not only has good camber and decent sightlines, it’s been
recently repaved as well. And when you factor in that more than
one million Californians hold a Class M license, there’s an
odds-on chance that at least one of those colorful guys on the
screaming Gixxers is an off-duty speed tax collector. And isn’t
that the greatest irony of all.
