Last Minute Escape from Hell (Half Moon Bay, CA)
It's going to be very hot inland this weekend. Can't think of anything I'd rather do than to go to the coast and spend the day riding in the cooler temps near the coast.
Meet on Seymour Street (plenty of street parking) across from the Coastside Baptist Church on the west side of Hwy 1 in Half Moon Bay. Ride back roads and Hwy 1 to Davenport. Eat lunch in Davenport before returning to Half Moon Bay (generally headwinds on the return)
Distance: 80 miles (84 if we stick to the linked route)
Climbing: Lots. Estimate 5,000'
Shorter (~60 miles) option 1: Meet us at the San Gregorio General Store, 7615 Stage Rd., San Gregorio, CA 94074. We will be rolling up there around 10:30AM. This selection eliminates the northbound climb between San Gregorio and the intersection of Stage Road/Hwy 1 and climbing total is about 3,000'. If you select this option, please post your intention so we know whether to look for anyone at the store.
Shorter (~50 miles) option 2: Meet us at the Arcangeli Grocery, 287 Stage Rd. Pescadero, CA 94060. We should be rolling up there around 11:15 AM. This choice eliminates two of the harder climbs, total climbing about 2400'. If you select this option, please post your intention so we know whether to look for anyone at the store.
