A Spring Time Ride through Flowers

Spring on the Central Coast is an incredible time to get outside and explore. The hills are green, flowers are popping, and the weather is just about perfect. Liz and I enjoy bicycle touring and a multi-day bicycle tour during my spring break is always a treat.

Route MapLast year we rode down the Big Sur Coast with 6 friends, and this year it was a tour of the interior of the Central Coast with a final destination of Ventura, CA. As the time to start riding approached, my level of excitement increased. With a dozen adventurous people and some lightly traveled back roads, the recipe for a good time was there.Course ProfileThe plan was to spread out 163 miles over four days so that any single day wasn’t too much.  According to the Google course profile, we’d lose about 1000 feet from beginning to end.  The road we’ll travel was to be a gradual incline with lots of flat road and rolling hills. There are a few steep spots, but overall, it should be just about perfect.
