California's Big Sur Coast Biking- Trip Overview
"The Power of the Pacific "
Truly experience the ever-changing meeting of the relentless Pacific Ocean and the rugged California central coast. In one action-packed week traverse through open oceanside fields, and along the battle line between the turbulent waters and towering peaks that is the Big Sur coastline.

Days 1-2: Monterey Bay
Enjoy dual views of the Pacific and the southern San Francisco Bay area roll down through the redwoods past Pigeon Point and Año Nuevo Island. The next day ride along the nature reserve of Elkhorn Slough as we cruise into Monterey.

Days 3: 17-mile Drive and Bixby's Bridge
Visit to the standard-setting Monterey Bay Aquarium or visits to some of the locale's obscure yet fine wineries. 17 mile drive leads us to the Big Sur coast with the only major hill being a 500 ft. rise from Bixby Bridge(the really famous one) up to Hurricane Point.

Days 4-5: California's Finest Coastal Road
Our pedal continues on the most dramatic section of the roller coaster roads of Hwy 1 past Kirk and Willow Creeks, Gorda (named after the offshore rock interpreted as looking like a woman who eats too much). Jade Cove offers a chance to catch our breath as well as a great opportunity to scan for Jade and Serpentine at before we continue up and down to the cliff side park at Ragged Point and on to our finish in Cambria.
