The River's Inn, Big Sur for Lunch

We've done it once, we've done it twice, We've done it three times...And...we're going to doing it again!

Time to mix it up a bit!


Road kill

 Our plan is to have lunch in Big Sur at The River Inn, ON the river. We found a great sandwich shop right there for some good food!

Please dress in layers and please pack a blanket or beach tower.

We'll gas up at the Chevron Station off of Rio Rd and Hwy 1 and then continue South. If there is a desire...and time, we'll head to Nepenthe for the view.
We'll meet in front of Starbucks Coffee  at 9:00am with a FTG, (Full Tank of Gas), have our safety talk (ST) at 9:15am and KSU at 9:30AM.

Morning Route will be Old San Jose Rd to Summit to Old Soquel, South a Porter St South on Hwy 1 to Rio Rd for our 1st fill up.

Return Route: Hwy 1 to 152, Watsonville Rd, Uvas Dam.....We will end up at the Starbucks on Santa Cruz Rd in LG again.

    ... The unique brand meant that cattle owned by multiple ranches could then graze freely together on the open range. Cowboys could then separate the cattle at "roundup" time for driving to market. Cattle rustlers using "running irons" were ingenious in changing brands. ...

    The ride to Big Sur was amazing - and once at the River's Inn the food, company, weather, and setting were fantastic! Thanks for taking/posting all of the creative photos - clearly not the work of amateurs. Alan Y gets yet another notch in his 'great ride' belt. Apologies for my late arrival due to 'construction traffic stoppage' along Route 84. Alan, Ken, Natalie, Glenn, Paul and Michelle - you made this ride such a fun event!

    Do you guys have an approx ETA at the Chevron on Rio/Hwy 1? I plan on meeting up with you guys there, as I live in Carmel. I can always sit over at the Starbucks across the street and wait.....

      Sounds good. If we miss each other at the Chevron, I'll catch up with the group at the Inn.

    I think we should stick to our Wed. Alices tradition meet up & ride. Then those who choose to do the ride to Big Sur Inn after can do so for lunch
