Central Coasting: Paso Robles Autumn 2014


El Pomar Vinyards

Paso Robles is one of the Central Coast’s best kept secret; it’s a hidden gem just waiting to be found. Lots of people are quickly discovering one of California’s fastest growing wine region. With the revitalization of the Historic Downtown area, you can shop and dine to your heart’s delight!

You’ll love riding along the quiet rolling country back roads in San Luis Obispo County with majestic oaks studded hills, vineyards, olive orchards, farms and ranches. The rural areas and small towns maintain the traditional Old West architecture alongside award wining wineries and vineyards. You’ll see plenty of horse farms, almond & walnut orchards and small ranching communities with cattle and sheep.

There’s an abundance of riding for cyclists of all abilities. These routes represent a diverse range of the geographic regions surrounding Paso Robles with rides ranging from 35-75 miles; head north up to Parkfield, go west out along Peachy Canyon and out to the coast into Cambria, and to the south into Templeton and Creston.

The gentle rolling hills around Paso Robles is a cyclist’s dream! Go and enjoy all that Paso Robles has to offer. Head out to the countryside and meander through the vineyards and beautiful estate wineries and enjoy the quiet autumn season with its mild weather and fog free mornings. Less tourists also equals less cars on the road!

For this self-organized fixed base cycling trip, we stayed at the Wine Country RV Resort on Airport Rd off CA-46 E.
