Well, CalTrans, you’ve blown it again. It’s painfully obvious that whoever assigns your highway numbers is paying absolutely no attention to Destination Highways’ TIRES system. Case in point: your numbering of Hwys 29 and 175 makes no sense and needs to be reversed. Consider Hwy 29. The steep, 11.1 mi (17.9 km) of winding passing lanes north of Calistoga through the overhanging forest on Hwy 29 are great. Then, you’re faced with five boring miles through the flattening prairie-scape to Middletown. Fine, it happens. But at that point, there’s a fork in the highway. So there’s a decision to make. And what do you do? You number the straight, mind-numbing road to Lower Lake “29” and give the excellent, twisting climb up through the little towns in the Boggs Mountain State Forest a pathetically low number like “175”! True, the Engineering’s not quite as good on Hwy 175 as Hwy 29, but what about the other five TIRES components? The fact is, your nonsensical highway numbering gives no guidance to the best motorcycling routes. Undoubtedly, you’ll wish to remedy this situation now that it has been brought to your attention. A copy of Destination Highways Northern California is enclosed for your easy reference.
