Alvin,
I liked this shot in your blog.

The Street sign seems to indicate that this road was made for roadsters!!!! ;-)

curves.jpg

The street sign going the other direction which i did not see that you caught on the way down says "NEXT20 MILES" under it.
That one is on route 9 south right after 236 north intersection. That is a great set of curves too.
Here is a copy of it from google maps.

Hey fellow bay area inhabitants,

I am proposing a little Roadster meet up and cruise starting at the final Canepa cars&coffee, Saturday October 14th. Route would hopefully include twistys and coastline and maybe just maybe some artichoke bread :D ....Any interest?

Aidan if you can get us front and center in front of the main entrance usually reserved for the "cool" cars, then I'll be there for you. As early as you want.

Or do what I did, show up after they leave!

Don't worry too much, Canepa will likely be very crowded. I'll be doing multiple runs on Skyline to go to the the chestnut farm up there this month. So there is still lots of Fun Running opportunity before the rains, I'll let you guys know.

Chestnut farm!!!!

Went for the first time last year.... so much fun gathering! Hmmmm, our "Fall Collection" (or whatever they call it) from Fogarty Winery will be ready for pick-up in a couple of weeks too. Will have to make a day of it!
