Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)
This narrow road initially threads more or less flatly through mostly bare coastal hills and past a few farms. Along this part, you'll also encounter The Bike Hut. This is an unattended "supply shack" for cyclists at Potrero Nuevo Farm that is open 24/7. You can find snacks, drinks, as well as emergency supplies and spare parts there and you're expected to leave payment for what you take based on the honor system.
This is an excellent ride, my group normally Starts at Woodside, climb Kings mountain and then go down to the Red Hut at Tunitas. The Tunitas return climb is a pleasure, you can even join groups starting at the Red Hut or meet fellow climbers as you go along. First "rest" is a bridge surrounded by redwoods called "The Church" , this is the start of the hard climb that ends at "Grassy Knoll" (2nd rest) - After Grassy Knoll, it is just cruising all the way to skyline. Every other year, after Summer, the maintenance crew of Tunitas spreads gravel generously, some bikes cannot make the climb as the pebbles get stuck between frame and tire, be careful.
