“The Central Coast is an area of California, roughly spanning the coastal region between Point Mugu and Monterey Bay. It lies northwest of Los Angeles County and south of San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, and includes the rugged, undeveloped stretch of coastline known as Big Sur. From south to north, there are six counties that make up the Central Coast: Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Monterey, San Benito, and Santa Cruz.” – Wikipedia.org

Paso Robles & Beyond Ride Experience Video

In this ride experience video, JOM of the Gravel Cyclist crew is joined by the Lady Gravel Cyclist (follow her on Instagram at https://instagram.com/LadyGravelCyclist), for a sweet 55+ mile ride that starts and leaves Paso Robles. Along the way, stunning scenery featuring wineries, olive trees, rolling hills, one extremely tough and challenging climb, and a lot more. Without doubt, my #1 California mixed-surface ride to date.

More to come from California soon, including our bike tech coverage of Sea Otter 2022! Watch this space.

Located on the Salinas River north of San Luis Obispo, California, the city is known for its hot springs, its abundance of wineries, its production of olive oil, almond orchards, and for playing host to the California Mid-State Fair.”
