PSSST. HIGHWAY 1 BEING CLOSED CREATES AN INCREDIBLE OPPORTUNITY FOR CYCLISTS.
Historic Highway 1 is iconic for the beautiful views around every bend, but it’s also highly regarded by cyclists from around the world for its rolling hills, challenging climbs and unique terrain. Cyclists—both novices and pros alike—flock to Highway 1 for training and active vacations. Fortunately, for cyclists in-the-know, now is the perfect time for one of these adventures.
HERE’S THE BIG SECRET: WITH THE HIGHWAY CLOSED FROM MONTEREY TO RAGGED POINT, THERE IS SIGNIFICANTLY LESS MOTOR VEHICLE TRAFFIC, WHICH MEANS CYCLISTS CAN RULE THE ROAD.
Though this highway closure is not optimal for many of the quaint tourist destinations along the Central Coast, it’s perfect for cyclists. So, what’s next? Book your trip, dust off your cleats, choose your route and clip in for a long, peaceful ride down Highway 1.
