Description: Popular brevet route, was featured in RUSA’s American Randonneur in June 2014. See lots of salad fields, ranches and vineyards. A good mix of great cycling roads and area connectors. Starts in San Luis Obispo, makes a short loop north and through Cuesta College first, then heads south to Guadalupe, to Lompoc via bumpy Drum Canyon, then along picturesque, lightly traveled Santa Rosa Rd to Buellton. After passing through Solvang, head up Alamo Pintado and Foxen Canyon Rd to the outskirts of Santa Maria. Take the Santa Maria River cycling bridge on the way back to Nipomo, and then return to SLO.
In 2017, the Down to the River Populaire will be run together with the 300k; these rides share some of the route.
