We like to think of Oregon’s mid-valley as the ideal place for riding a bike. But as I hope the video shows, the central valley of California, away from the cities, is cycling country too.
This place is off Interstate 5 in the vicinity of the town of Coalinga. The rolling road and lack of heavy traffic make for a refreshing morning ride, even in mid-January.
The road is marked by a three memorials to people who, apparently, lost their lives there. There’s no information about the circumstances. I trust they had nothing to do with bikes. The few vehicles who passed me this morning gave me more than enough space. (hh)
