    Put on your widest tires for this GROAD (gravel/road) ride. Up OSM/PC to Camino Cielo. Across 154 to Kinevan to W. Camino, about 10 miles of beat up jeep road, past Broadcast Peak,  all the way to Refugio and down down down past the Reagan Ranch on that potholed crappy road - you'll be happy you're on a cross/gravel bike! Lunch at El Capitan Canyon and back down the highway. About 55 miles from OSM, about 6800 feet of climb, allow 5 hours not including lunch. Bring plenty to drink and eat.

    Ryan Luongo will be leading this one. (805)636-9573

    PLEASE RSVP/REGISTER!

    We'll do the classic Vieja Valley Ride (this used to be the Saturday Echelon Ride): Around Hope Ranch, up La Cumbre out Foothill/Cathedral Oaks with a sprint up Glen Annie. Then out Calle Real to the beautifully resurfaced 101 to El Capitan Campground for snacks and a break. Out Calle Real then up Refugio Cyn to Circle Bar B.  And back. Exit the highway at Hollister where we can continue back to Java Station for coffee or lunch. This is a great ride with good distance and not too much climbing. The parts on the newly  resurfaced 101 feature wide shoulders and excellent coastal views; it is quite safe these days. If you haven't done this route I strongly encourage it!

    Here is the Strava Route. You can look at it, print it, and/or load it into your Garmin: https://www.strava.com/routes/13624130
