Breakfast at Richardson grove state park was a deja vue moment - bread, salami and cheese. We planned to have a hot breakfast in Leggett which was only 16 miles away. At 7:30 we rolled off anticipating hot coffee and breakfast. The easy ride turned out to be mostly uphill and narrow under construction road with too many trucks. So happy to finally arrive in Leggett to find out the town didn't even have a gas station and only had a small grocery. The good news is that we celebrated cinco de Mayo with microwave burritos. From there started a 4 mile 7% grade on hiway 1 toward the coast. After a long descent and another 2 mile 7% grade we finally arrive at the coast. A beautiful coastline and 20 miles of rollers bring us to Fort Bragg. The rollers were one right after another and were like the 7 bitches on the Penticton ironman course. You zoom down one in the big ring expecting to get over the top of the next roller only to realize you need to use the middle ring and finally the little ring to struggle over the top. And the you do it over and over again for the next 20 miles.
Our warm showers hosts Roy and Mary have provided us with great company, dinner and a very nice guest house for the night.
Tomorrow includes a quick stop at the Mendicino botanical gardens and breakfast some where in town. Then we expect to enjoy 80 more miles of those wonderful rollers before camping for the night.
