Explore Refugio and El Capitan State Parks and the surrounding areas. This ride has a lot of variety with spectacular coastal views, winding rural canyon roads, beaches, campgrounds, class one bike paths with rolling hills.
As always we will have multiple routes. Please let us know if you are riding which route option you intend to ride: both options start at the Refugio exit.
Directions to Starting Point: Get off the 101 at the Refugio exit and park on the dirt as you start to go north on Refugio Rd. Option “A” up to 28 Miles and 2200+ ft of elevation, (moderate to difficult), and Option “B” 14 Mile (Easy).
Since this ride starts at Refugio Rd. some may need help getting to the start. If you can provide a ride or need one, you can use the Ride Sharing Forum to coordinate rides.
Option A: Starts 8:00 at Refugio exit. Ride up Refugio Canyon road, 3 miles with nearly 500 ft of elevation to the Circle Bar B Guest Ranch. Where there is a turn of century guest ranch that has been handed down through 4 generations. For the strong riders, they can continue for up to another 3.8 miles and nearly 1,800 ft of elevation gain (20% grade in some spots). Other’s may wish to stop for coffee. At 9:15 we start our descent back to meet up with the Option “B” group.
