A few weekends ago I went with a buddy to take a ride through the Four Corners over at Woodside, a popular location for motorcyclist and sport car enthusiasts as the roads in the area are full of switchbacks and great scenery.
A quick simple introduction about the Four Corners: The two roads that creates the Four Corners are Skyline (HWY 35) and La Honda (SR 84), hence where the name is derived from. Also at the Four Corners is a restaurant called Alice’s, which is another name that some call this area. Some locals refer to the Four Corners as Skylonda, taking bits of the street names and combining them into one.
One can go all the way to the Pacific Ocean and hit the town of San Gregorio by heading west on SR 84 and or go east and hit Redwood City. On SR 35 one can go north and hit San Francisco or head south through the mountains and hit Santa Cruz when the route hits HWY 17.
This was my second time riding the Four Corners and definitely will not be my last. Below is a short video of our ride through the Four Corners. I’ll be honest, the footage isn’t groundbreaking or super exciting since there was a fair amount of traffic in the area which caused us to cruise a moderate pace. Even cruising at a slow speed, the experience was awesome and a great way for a new rider such as myself to develop as a rider and gain confidence. Next time I hit up the Four Corners, it will not be on a weekend but rather on a weekday with less cars on the road.
P.S. Still need to improve on my lines…
