We meet at our UDC Cycling Center in Los Altos at 9:00 AM. After a brief meeting and bike adjustments, we take you over Kings Mountain, one of the most popular climbs in the area, then down Tunitas Creek Road to the coast, and finally north to Half Moon Bay (about 40 miles). Your destination is the Beach House Half Moon Bay, at the water's edge. For our guided trips, dinner is next door at Sam's Chowder house, a famous seafood restaurant where you can dine on the patio as the Sun sets into the Pacific. I recommend the ahi poke appetizer, really yummy.
Our ride for the dayis a variation of the local "coastal classic" route -a loop the explores the coast and the quieter roads that lead inland. The 54-mile loop travels through the rolling hills and into the redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Dinner tonight will be at one of the fine Half Moon Bay restaurants.
Today our ride takes you farther down the coast to the inviting small town of Pescadero, then inland through some of the quietest and most picturesque roads in the area, back to the summit of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Then hold on for a thrilling descent on La Honda Road (watch your speed into the hairpin turns!), followed by a relaxing spin back to the UDC Cycling Center. Once back at the center, you can take advantage of our bathroom with showers to clean up and change.
Wonderful Tour with top-notch, excellent hotels and great dining too! The riding was challenging but doable with the Sea Ranch down the Pacific Coast on Hway 1 day perhaps MY FAVORITE RIDE EVER ON THE BIKE. Our guides (Rick & Scott) were superb, always there when needed, very helpful and great customer support ethics. We've been on many bike tours with a few different companies and this one ranks right up there with some of the best. Definitely considering another bike tour with UDC, perhaps as soon as this coming Spring!!!
