Hello, I am planning on leaving eugene in mid march and riding down to Arcata with my girlfriend to visit her family. We are planning to get to the coast via smith river road and meet 101 at Reedsport. Any suggestions? This is the first tour for both of us and I am trying to just cover the bases. Good places to stay? Park recommendations? Pacific coast bike route advice? I have heard and read that it is more difficult to follow going south. And yes, we will be prepared for rain.
Thanks for any help
