March 26 200k Wine Country (ACP) – Saturday
March 26 300k Wine Country (ACP) – Saturday
March 26 400k Wine & Waves– (ACP) – Saturday/Sunday
Added a 200k option on this wonderful course, the 300k & 400k rides share the first 280km while the 200k shares the first 150km. Head north from SLO over Cuesta Grade to San Miguel for early lunch. Then, hit the hills west of Paso Robles and ride the wine country. Climb over Hwy 46 to the coast and up to Ragged Point, and back to SLO for the 300k or if doing the 200k you will only go as far north as Cambria skipping the usual headwinds. If you are riding 400k, then its back out for a loop through Santa Maria.
April 9 300k Mostly SLO – Saturday
April 9 400k Mostly SLO – Saturday
April 9 600k Mostly SLO – Saturday/Sunday Added a 300k & 400k option for 2021. The 600k that starts and finishes in SLO. Heads up to the northern part of SLO county via Cuesta Grade, visiting many of the small towns to the east before winding through the wine country west of Paso Robles, then out to the visit the elephant seals on the coast returning through SLO to see the 5 cities area before overnighting in SLO. The second day has a visit to Montana de Oro state part, the dunes south of Pismo Beach and a trip to the tiny Huasna townsite. The 400k route is essentially the same as the first day on the 600k with just a little extra to get the distance correct. The 300k is pretty much the 400k route but skips the ride up north on Highway 1 resulting in less lovely ocean views but probably less headwinds as well.

June 26 102k San Simeon Coastal (RUSA) – Sunday
A repeat of first ride of the year. A nice journey up the coast and back followed by a refreshment on the Morro Bay Embarcadero.
