Ride Description

With the newly constructed Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge on Highway 1 we will have our original loop course for 2018: Route Map Click Here.

The course starts and ends at the Salinas Valley Fairgrounds in King City. In the morning, riders will ride north toward Greenfield climbing Cahoon Summit to Carmel Valley through the famous golden hills of California and through some of the richest agricultural areas in America. From Carmel Valley, the course continues northwest toward the world-renowned Carmel-by-the-Sea, then heads south on the beautiful rugged stretch of California coastline, State Route 1. To the east, the Santa Lucia Mountains provide a breathtaking border, and to the west, there is nothing but steep cliffs, hidden beach coves, and ocean as far as the eye can see. Point of interests are Bixby Creek Bridge, Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge, and Grimes Point Scenic Overlook. Lunch will be served in Big Sur at Mile 103.

After lunch riders will continue heading south on State Route 1 toward Lucia, then will climb the famous Nacimiento-Fergusson Road, the only road across the Santa Lucia Range, connecting State Route 1 and the Big Sur coast to U.S. Route 101 and the Salinas Valley. The road heads east from the Pacific Ocean into the high country of Big Sur; after 7 mile scenic ascend it reaches the summit at an altitude of 2,780 feet. The road descends through the heavily forested eastern side of the ridge, passes through the U.S. Army's Fort Hunter Liggett, and ends at Mission Road in Jolon. Riders will then continue east onto Jolon Road toward a 20 mile out-and-back 'Lockwood-Hesperia-Lockwood' segment before heading north to finish in King City. Total mileage will be 201 miles with ~14,000 ft. of elevation gain.

The route is tentative pending final permit approval from the counties. Feel free to upload this route to your navigation device with the caveat that road or weather conditions may force us to change the route at the last minute. You will receive the official cue sheet in your rider packet.
