Well said Terry, I completely agree. I've ridden in that area quite
often and have never had a problem.

The other leg they decided to abandon - out of Arcata - is difficult
but also quite doable on a bike. The roads are most certainly not
unsafe as Mr. Krieg claims. Been there, done that.

The claim that these aborted relay legs make the case for them is a
bunch of hooey!

Does your inability to find a rider for a relatively safe, popular route
make the case that even your ceaseless self-publicity has limits to its
effectiveness? It's summer, the weather is good, college students are on
vacation, and you can't find someone to ride 42 miles in wine country?
