Lighthouse Century

September 28 2019
Morro Bay, California, USA
 

All three routes leave Morro Bay on scenic Highway 1, with vistas of Morro Rock and the Estero Bay shoreline. Those taking the Old Creek 85 Route travel up the winding, oak-tree-shaded and challenging Old Creek Road while those choosing the Century Route make the long climb up Highway 46. Both of these routes turn around at the Donati Family Vineyard rest stop and enjoy the long Highway 46 downhill with its breathtaking views of the coast.  Those choosing the Coastal 65 Route remain on Highway 1 throughout.

All riders enjoy a rest stop at Cambria's Shamel Park and then continue north along the San Simeon coast to the turnaround rest stop at the Cypress Tree Vista just below the Elephant Seal Observation area. Be sure to look for zebras on the Hearst Ranch property. The Shamel Park rest stop again serves all riders as they return to the start. Hopefully the return ride from Cypress Tree Vista will be tailwind-aided all the way to Morro Bay High School and a well-earned post-ride BBQ.
