Climate Ride California North Coast - Day 3

Today was a big day for many Climate Riders who tackled a century ride (100 miles) on this epic stretch of the Pacific coast. Riders were up before dawn and most were on the route by 7 am.

Pedaling 100 miles of coastline, stretching through Mendocino and Sonoma counties, was today’s agenda. The route followed scenic Highway 1 along bluffs and fields overlooking rocky bays and sandy beaches of some of California’s most remote coastline.
