Brevets Schedule is a mix of RUSA Populaires and ACP Brevets
Jan 13 102k San Simeon Coastal (RUSA) – Saturday
Jan 13 200k Morro Bay More Coastal (ACP)- Saturday
Newish Route -Begin at Morro Bay Embarcadero and head north through Cambria to climb a bit of Santa Rosa before continuing on to Ragged Point with it’s priceless ocean views. You may see zebras in the fields below Hearst Castle. Then ride south with the wind to Morro Bay, with more coastal riding over to Baywood/Los Osos before looping almost to SLO and back to a Morro Bay finish at the Embarcadero. The 100k route shares the first 50km with the 200k route except it skips the Cambria diversion, the 100k route turns around just north of San Simeon to return directly back to Morro Bay via highway 1.
Jan 14 120k High Mountain (RUSA Planned )- Sunday
Begin at Morro Bay Embarcadero and inland through SLO out to one of the charming valleys east of SLO, up Hi Mountain Rd (no actual mountain) before heading back to Morro Bay to the finish at the Embarcadero.
Feb 3 200k Morro Bay Almost Tepusquet (ACP)- Saturday
Feb 3 300k Morro Bay Tepusquet (ACP)- Saturday
Newish Route – Similar to the traditional winter 300K and last years Southern Canyons but this year we instead of heading all the way down to Buellton we will be heading east from Santa Maria to do the nice Tepusquet Climb that some will be familiar with from a 200k a few years ago. On the way back we go through Santa Maria, climb up to Lopez Lake Campground before returning through SLO to Morro Bay. The 200k follows the 300k route for the first 93km and which points the rides recombine multiple times with the 200k skipping the Tepusquet and Lopez Lake sections (i.e. climbing)
March 23 400k SLO North County (ACP) – Saturday/Sunday
Newish Route – The 200k is new for 2024 and shares the first 30km with the 300k/400k and intersects at multiple points with the other routes. The 300k & 400k rides share the first 250km. Head north from SLO over Cuesta Grade Heads up to the northern part of SLO county via Cuesta Grade, visiting many of the small towns to the east (Pozo, Creston, Shandon) before winding through the wine country west of Paso Robles, then out to Cambria on the coast returning through SLO to see the 5 cities area and Avila Beach before finishing back in SLO. The 300k is pretty much the 400k route but goes directly back to Morro Bay via Old Creek and then skips the loop down to the 5 cities and Avila Beach. The 200k cuts off Pozo and part of the wine country.
May 11 300k Mostly SLO (ACP) – Saturday
May 11 400k Mostly SLO (ACP) – Saturday/Sunday
May 11 600k Mostly SLO (ACP) – Saturday/Sunday
May 12 200k Mostly SLO Day 2 (ACP) – Sunday
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.
I have added a 200k on the Sunday that is most of the 600k’s second day so for some reason if you have to bail on the 600k or just want to do a 300k/200k or 400k/200k weekend then you have that option.
