Pacific Coast > Pescadero Loop (San Gregorio, CA)

Contact:

Meet at the San Gregorio General Store in San Gregorio, CA. We'll then drive/park a short distance away from the store to start the ride.

We'll head south on the Pacific Coast Highway, stopping to take a short break at the Pigeon Point Lighthouse before continuing down the coast to have lunch at the Highway 1 Brewing Company near the intersection with Gazos Creek Road. After lunch, we'll head back north via Gazos Creek > Cloverdale > Stage roads, taking a break in the village of Pescadero before finishing the ride up Stage Rd.

This is a fantastic route with a variety of scenery--expect cool ocean breezes, views of the surf, some riding in the shade of big trees, some grassy hills and chaparral and some mildly challenging climbs.

Distance: about 36 miles

Pace: 13-15 mph when/if rolling in flat terrain, higher/lower on descents/climbs. Regroups if/as needed.

Route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28260134
Note that linked route does not include the planned 3-mile diversion (6 miles total) to the gate at the end of Gazos Creek Rd. Also, if all riders agree, we'll make it about 40 miles with a short ride up into Butano State Park. It's otherworldly up there!
