This ride includes but is not limited to Stage Road, Highway 1, Gazos Creek Road, Pescadero Creek Road, and parts of Highway 84. It offers spectacular views of the majestic Pacific Ocean and verdant Redwood forests. Although the route never stops rolling, it rolls downhill for the last ten miles. It is a challenging ride for many B riders with 2800 feet of climbing, but we do not leave riders behind. Lunch will be in Pescadero at about the thirty mile mark (Bring or buy). Riders should meet Howard Shafer ([masked]) at the San Gregorio General Store at 9:45 am for a 10:00 am departure. To get to the start, take Highway 84, aka La Honda Road, from I-280. Go west over the mountain and almost to the coast. The store is at the intersection of Stage Road and Highway 84. Park far enough from the store that your car won’t encroach on customers’ parking area. There have been reports that the owners don’t like cyclists. Don’t make it worse. Bad weather cancels ride.
