Notes on Our New Routes:
With the change in venue comes a change in the traditional routes. You’ll start out with some new miles on Hwy 101, between Fortuna and Rio Dell. There’s a good shoulder on this section of the highway.¬† At the end of the day, you will cross the historic Fernbridge, a narrow two lane bridge — you can press the button at the entrance to the bridge which flashes to signal that cyclists are on the bridge. This is followed by a short stretch of Hwy 101 riding before exiting to Main Street in Fortuna — as the shoulder is narrow here, you may wish to ride on the sidewalk at the on ramps and off ramps to stay further away from traffic.
