Cycling the Avenue of Giants

Its a 50km stretch of road just off the main Highway 101 in Northern California. It’s famed for its many groves of Redwoods, which I spent an extraordinary amount of time photographing and exploring. The road was narrow and predominantly flat for the most part with little or no shoulder on the road for the poor cyclist.

The other road users were very considerate as they too gazed in wonder at the scenic road. I will let the following photos paint the picture of my day on the Avenue of the Giants.

  1. The picture of you standing inside the stump is amazing. If these trees could tell stories of the things they have seen over the years…
