Thanks, and hope you enjoyed the 4th! -R

hey randal, once we get there, it will be great if you could lead the july 15-17 san simeon/nascimiento ride. you being in sc, this is your backyard....

there will be about 9 of us and no one has been there before. better to have someone who's familiar with the area so we don't get lost and waste time looking for the good roads.

we will all be riding big adventure bikes and staying in san simeon (sands by the sea).

loner and biggiE, get off the fence....

  1. 7:30 AM coffee at The Daily Grind Coffee & Tea Station, 2001 De La Vina St., Santa Barbara, CA 93105. Exit the Ventura Freeway at Mission St. in Santa Barbara.
  2. 9:00 AM kickstands up at the trail head at the intersection of Gibraltar Road and East Camino Cielo, NF-5N12. There is a small area to park trucks and unload bikes at the trail head. This is what I'm going to do. It is a LONG, SLOW ride off the freeway up Gibraltar Road to the trail head, so give yourself a lot of time.
  3. This is a good ride for large adventure bikes.
  4. Bring a sack lunch, snacks and plenty of cold drinks. We'll eat on the trail.
  5. I'm not going to follow this page closely for the next three weeks, so PM me with questions.

sounds good vic. 99% IN.

Joel, I'm not sure I can get away from the house remodel that weekend, but I can definitely provide some route advice and gps tracks. No matter what, you won't want to miss South Coast Ridge/Los Burros (fun dirt fire road with awesome coast and inland views connecting from the top of Nacimiento-Fergusson to Hwy 1 just north of Gorda Springs).



It's not hectic, and should be good for the big bikes, but there are some steep and rolling sections.



Which direction is the route? Up the coast and over Nacimiento-Fergusson? Up the valley and back down the coast? Or are you just staying in San Simeon and riding out from there?

If you can give me a better idea of the general routes and the amount of riding time for each day, that would help me put together some recommendations for you guys.

randal, we are staying in san simeon both fri and sat nights. the plan is spend the whole saturday (8am - 8 pm) exploring san simeon and the surrounding area (including nascimiento-ferguson). then on sunday we will ride back to l.a. in a leisure manner, checking out many of the good sceneries along the coast.

we haven't made any plans yet, though i'm thinking of this RR by zen slug.

I thought it was. It wasn't getting any better. I am able to rotate my foot, but I can't put any weight on it. Xrays showed I was lucky with the break. The Fib broke high enough that the entire ankle didn't let loose. I have thought about a hack. Hack an xr4, that would be unique!

Cool, a loop ride from San Simeon it is!

(I will attempt to attach GPS tracks here, but will e-mail them to Joel if that doesn't work - the GPS files are not live logged, but created from a mapping program I had prior to getting a GPS. They should be accurate enough for route finding - I did this whole ride without a GPS)

I would start by recommending a favorite road in the Cambria area for heading up to San Simeon (or, even better, back down the coast). I prefer it in the south to north direction, so I would take it on the way home: Santa Rosa Creek Road (the best part is before Hwy 46) it becomes Old Creek Road south of Hwy 46 and comes out in Cayucos.




The most important loop, and where I assume you will want to spend a good part of Saturday riding is up Los Burros Road to South Coast Ridge Road (Access Los Burros at right turn on a non-descript road north of here - Gorda Springs):



It is also the last fuel before Big Sur, but it is usually pricier than Death Valley...

Up Los Burros, then left onto South Coast Ridge (you can explore to the right, but it is a dead end - same for Prewitt Ridge, later on, also a dead end). You will come out at Nacimiento-Fergusson and can head down to the coast. For exploring sake you might want to try the road to Cone Peak (Coast Ridge, across N-F road from S. Coast Ridge), but I think it is closed right now: http://www.fs.fed.us/r5/ (navigate to: Los Padres/Monterey District Road Closures - the direct link is way too long) The good news is that S. Coast Ridge appears to be open.



You will want to head north on Hwy 1 to Big Sur. Stop just past the entrance to Julia-Pfeiffer Burns State Park and park on the coast side of the road. If you are in the right spot you can see McWay falls cascading down onto the beach.



Head up to Big Sur. Stop at the River Inn (fuel and food). Don't forget to walk down to the river and have a seat in one of the many Adirondack chairs. You can even carry them down into the creek and soak your feet in the cool water while enjoying a beverage...



Leaving Big Sur to the north, just past/at the entrance to Andrew Molera State Park, turn right onto Coast Road. Nice twisty dirt road, 10 miles or so. Takes you away from the coast, through the trees and back out at the Bixby Creek Bridge. Good fun!





From there, I would head back down Hwy 1 to San Simeon. Taking any remaining spare time to stop and enjoy the coastal views.



You guys are going to have an awesome time. I look forward to the stories and photos!
