What are some of the best driving roads in the Bay Area?

What are some of the best driving roads in the Bay Area? I'm looking for some good mountain roads. I've found a few okay ones in the area but none that are really amazing.

Please post if you know any good ones

Here's a good site: http://www.unitonestudios.com/BayAre...ngRoads/?cat=7

Threads like this pop up every 6 months to a year. Then everyone yells and says STFU and stop talking about my roads. blah blah.

My advice... do a search.

I just went thru the San Mateo bridge, got on skyline, somehow ended up on hwy1 and rode that down to Santa Cruz.


I'm not familiar at all with that area I don't know where 9 is lol

You have to take 280 south to Saratoga, or better yet if you cross on san mateo bridge, take 92 west just past 280 and get on 35 south, take that all the way down.
