The Team KMan Bike Ride for Saturday, March 9, will take the route that rain prevented us from riding last week: The Union Loop, going the long way around to Paso Robles by way of Highways 58 and 229 and Geneseo and Union Roads. The prescribed return route to Atascadero is by way of Peachy Canyon Road. That complete route covers 66.0 miles and includes 3868 feet of climbing. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28961291
There are many obvious ways to do a shorter ride off of this route. Those desiring a longer ride also have a lot of options, including riding out Nacimiento Lake Drive after leaving Paso Robles and then taking either Adelaida Road or Chimney Rock Road before heading back to Atascadero.
The riders will gather at KMan Cycle and Run in Atascadero at 9:00 a.m., and depart at 9:08. There will be a coffee break stop in Paso Robles. For those who want to have lunch before returning to Atascadero, they can choose from a selection of food sources for that purpose in the Trader Joes mall in Templeton.
