Half Moon Bay to Pescadero Overnight Ride with Bike/Hike to Waterfall

Meet: 10:00 AM, ready to roll 10:30 AM

Mileage and Elevation Stats:

Distance: 75 mi round trip, 2750 ft. climb

2.5 mile RT hike to waterfall

Members from these groups will join us-


Please book your own Campsite, Tent Cabin, Hotel Room or Hostel Bed at one of these locations:

Bring: Lock and helmet, and whatever you need for your type of accommodation.

Carpools to be arranged, although two members are biking from SF to HMB and you may wish to join them.

We'll have lunch at Duarte's in Pescadero or go to Arcangeli-Norm's market to get supplies for lunch and an evening BBQ together at a campsite or you can pack your own dinner. Apparently the artichoke bread is amazing! We'll then ride another 10 miles to Costanoa, stopping by Pigeon Point Lighthouse Hostel to drop off any riders staying there.

Sunday we plan on going to Berry Creek Falls for bike-hike along the Skyline to the Sea trail. There are bike racks at the end of the bike-able trail where we can lock up and hike further into the forest for views of the falls.  The trail is fairly flat and mainly leafy.  Slightly wider tires on a road bike should do well here.

Later, we will return to HMB.  Roads include Stage, Pescadero Creek, Cloverdale, Bean Hollow and Highway One.

On the way back to HMB, we'll stop for lunch, possibly at the Hwy 1 Brewery or wherever the group decides to go.

Costanoa also has a small grocery market.

    Returning to Half Moon Bay after Pescadero since I can't do the overnight stay.

      Hi David, that's a great idea. You'll just miss the falls, but you must come to Costanoa to see the coast! There is another woman from another meetup who wants to go but can't find accommodations. I told her your idea. Her name is Reiko and she appears to be a strong rider. I hope she can join you and us if she can't find a cancellation~ Looking forward to meeting you.

      Yes actually I may stay with you all the way to Pigeon Pt and then return. Depends on how much time I have. I'm familiar with the Half Moon Bay - Lighthouse loop and I love it. Looks like I'll have a moderate headwind on the way back, sigh.

    Hi Cyclists, just want to touch base and make sure that everyone who is going has accommodations. Please update your RSVP to No if you can no longer make it. Remember to bring bike shoes you can walk in or carry regular shoes. Also, there will be some leafy terrain in the woods, but this is a road ride. See you in HMB Sat.!

    Hi everyone, I RSVP'd through another Meetup group, but I just want to let you know that I will be driving from Lake Merritt area and can offer a ride to whoever is interested! First come, first served. See you Saturday!
