Team KMan Bike Ride Notice
The Team KMan ride for Saturday, October 13, will be the Chimney Rock, Cypress Mountain/Klau Mine Road Loop, with a food stop in Paso Robles.
We will gather at KMan Cycle and Run in Atascadero at 8:30 and roll at 8:38, heading left on El Camino Real to right on Curbaril to left on Santa Ysabel to right on Highway 41 to left on Templeton Road. At the end of Templeton, we will turn left onto El Pomar and continue straight as the road becomes Vineyard Drive. We will stay the course on Vineyard through Templeton to Highway 46. After we cross 46, we’ll proceed straight on Vineyard to Willow Creek Road, where we will turn right and climb up to Peachy Canyon Road, where we will turn left. When Peachy Canyon ends back at Vineyard, we will turn right. From there it is up and down the rollers to Vineyard Drive’s T-intersection at Adelaida Road, where we will turn left. We will then follow Adelaida west until it ends at Chimney Rock. There we will turn left and follow Chimney Rock through its glorious open-view descent to Cypress Mountain Road.
A moment of truth will arrive when we reach the intersection of Chimney Rock and Cypress Mountain Roads. Riders will need to decide there whether to go the long way, to the end of Chimney Rock and then back to Cypress Mt., or to take the shorter route by heading directly left on Cypress Mt. instead.
At any rate, all will follow Cypress Mt. Road straight through as its name changes to Klau Mine Road, until it ends at Adelaida, where we will make a right turn. In the event that water and refreshments are needed at that point, there will be a stop at Tablas Creek Vineyards, before continuing on Adelaida up the climb and down the descent to Lake Nacimiento Road, where we will turn right and proceed to Vine Street. There we will take another right and head into Paso Robles. Those who are hungry can then stop at the Paso Pizza Kitchen at 625 12thStreet, or another place of their choice. From Paso Robles the route back to Atascadero will be determined by group consensus.
The ride will be 66 miles with 4900 feet of climbing for those who choose to go to the end of Chimney Rock and return to Atascadero from Paso Robles by way of River Road.
