Beautiful road via the Jubilee Pass through Death Valley
Great Mountain Road. Snow in winter.
This route takes you from the south of Yosemite up to Glacier Point and then into Yosemite Park past El Capitan and the half Dome before climbing through the Sierra Nevada to Lake Vining and up to Bridport. A ride with spectacular views and many corners. A good days riding with quite a few challenges.
High number of sport bikes on week ends.
Rural Road with lots of driveways and blind corners. Watch for dirt in road. Fun road that I used mostly to avoid the freeway.
Lots of corners, through desert and pines on a mostly good surface. Watch out for rocks and critters! :-)
If you nave not been to the Rock Store your missing out. It is a true destination nestled in some beautiful canyon roads. There are always 200-300 bikes parked in front and if you get there early on Friday, you are sure to see a celeb or two. Bring your camera on this on and plan to stop several time as the views keep changing from ocean views while riding down a mountain canyon road to scenic valleys. If your in this area, you cannot go wrong with this ride.
Beautiful ride around Yosemite Valley - circular route from Big Oak Flat Road. The scenery is breathtaking, you wouldn't want to go fast for fear of missing a great sight or some wildlife. There's a great stop for food and drink at the visitor centre too. I recorded a video of this ride - it's at https://youtu.be/6YZ2rBvPVa0 If you get the chance to ride/drive this route, do it - you won't regret it.
