New for 2019, the Santa Lucia Route gives riders (Eroici) an opportunity to experience the beauty of fatigue along the California coastline and the thrill of the conquest in the mountains of the Santa Lucia Range. Riders will have an ideal warm up heading south from our new host city of Cambria to the seaside village of Cayucos. After a brief stop the first challenge awaits, the Strade Bianche of Santa Rita Creek Road. Following a technical descent, riders will pass through the heart of the Central Coast’s wine country to reach a well-deserved rest stop at Halter Ranch Vineyards. The final obstacle along the Medium Route is the steep ascent of Cypress Mountain road followed by a 2000’ white-knuckle descent back to Cambria. Be sure to bring your granny gears and your 28 mm tires. This 75-mile ride is very challenging and you will earn your post-ride meal.
Approximately 75 miles – 5700′ of climbing
