Very picturesque area, beautiful seasonal colors, good twists and turns as well to be enjoyed.
Great view, nice turns and nice places to stop.
In many ways this road is a perfect bike trip, the atmosphere, the scenary and the climate make for a great biking experience, plenty of corners with mostly a good surface. There is sometimes a lot of tourist traffic though and long sections of the road where overtaking is not permitted mean it can be a bit frustrating for bikers. However still a great road. Check at the Elephant seals at the beach by Big Sur and Hearst castle (the basis for Citizen Kane) Enjoy
A serious climb up to Dantes View. Quite straight at first, then really tightens up during the climb to about 5475 feet. A great view of Death Valley from the top.
Fantastic valley scenary and a wicked selection o switchbacks here, words really cannot do the scenary justice, you simply have to see it for yourself.
