Bicycle Oregon Coast to Arcata California

I will be bicycling the Oregon coast through the Redwood forest in early Sept. and I have searched VT for guides on this activity but the results seem to be focus on driving or visiting.

If anyone else will be touring the coast via bicycle, let me know.

I have found plenty of information via the web but would welcome feedback on the following:

1) General comments and recommendation for the tour (I will be camping).

2) Any "must dos" or "must stops"?

3) Best places to eat breakfast, lunch, dinner

4) Best camp sites

5) Best places for a beer

6) Any information on the airport in Arcata, CA, and getting there...flying with a bike at that airport...closest campground or hotels in the area...

7) What and where to avoid

8) Any issues on biking to the airport.

Thanks for the help.

one rockin' place and also one cheap decent place to spend the night...

Hello friends!
I'll consider suggestions about campgrounds as well as cheap motels.
I'll be in Arcata on the 12th of September and I would love to go check out the 'music scene' in your town.
Regarding the music: what are the best spots for non mainstream bands? any link to your local paper with the listings of gigs?
Regarding where to spend the night:I imagine we'll be going to sleep really late, so a humble place is just fine for us. ...but safe, and clean would be great!
Any tip of any nature for a 24-hrs-in-Arcata situation would be appreciated. even just where to go take a good walk and enjoy your community...or nature

...yes, we're 2 musician on a tight budget ;)

thank you so much!

Moving to Arcata or Eureka  (3 Answers)

I am planning a move to either Eureka or Arcata could someone give me an idea of jobs and housing rentals available and I also have a 12 yr old son. Are there lots of kids there? It looks beautiful and very inline with my philosophy of life.

Anyone can ask a
travel question.

Destination experts (like you!) provide amazing answers.
