This was a VERY enjoyable 3 day trip we took this weekend.
Day 1: Vancouver to Port Townsend. Nothing interesting here, Chuckanut was full of police and tourists, Whidbey island is a boring ride... We entered Port Rownsend during their Rhododendron festival so the streets were packed. All I had to report this day was a bee sting, a gash in my tire from beer bottle glass (luckily it didn't puncture the tire) and a sprained ankle.
Day 2: Savannah's dad joined us this day from Vancouver so we didn't set off until after 10:30. We rode from Port Townsend to Neah Bay and back. This was the route.
Port Townsend to Port Angeles was the most boring ride you could imagine, no corners, just a highway. Not knowing what was ahead, having dressed WAY too light (fog was rolling in) I was discouraged and a little annoyed at this point. But we pushed on... Then it REALLY got cold, but the riding improved immensely! Here are some pics of 112 to Clallum bay.
The road improved even more so and the tight technical corners were clean and devoid of cars. The only cops we saw were sitting in the straights and we went by them at 5-10 over posted as was the pace most of the time in those useless straight bits.
We ran into a couple sportbikes from Seattle. Nice guys they were, so we let them run off to Neah bay first. This was an even BETTER surprise! A little more traffic and some gravel but the road quality here was unbelievable.
Keep in mind there are WAY better corners, but we couldn't be bothered stopping there.
Neah bay was a little crap town, but the Cape Flattery ride was fun. Another GREAT little road, but this one had a really low speed limit, we passed a cop in the corners here at 15 mph over but he didn't bother with us, This is what that road looked like. This is a straight stretch since I didn't want to stop in the corners on a foggy road.
Phil and I also decided (which you can see by my map) to ride up the dirt road to the peak! This is just a taste of what this road looked like! It got narrower and grassier/muddier after this and we had to turn around.
Who needs a GS?
