Mosquito Ridge Road - Foresthill, CA - "Deals Gap West"
If you live in or around Northern California, and have not yet ridden this road, you don't know what you are missing...
Be warned, though...this is not a road for the faint of heart...and the "buddy system" definitely applies here.
On the weekends, this place is pretty crowded with sportbikes (and CHP's), but during the week you'll have this road pretty much to yourself.
Anyways, with almost 600 curves in 35 miles up and down an elevation drop of over 4,000 feet with a sheer rock cliff face on one side of you and a couple-thousand-foot dropoff into the canyon on the other side of you (very few guardrails either) for the better part of the ride, your adrenaline will definitely be flowing after this! Beware of some very nasty blind, decreasing-radius curves between mile markers 27-30!
