The ride for Saturday, May 25, is the Chimney Rock/Cypress Mt/Klau Mine Loop, counterclockwise, from Vineyard Drive. The complete route goes out to the end of Chimney Rock Road and back before looping around on Cypress Mountain and Klau Mine Roads and returning by way of Adelaida Road through Paso Robles. An alternative return route goes through Templeton via Vineyard Drive, Booker and Las Tablas Roads. As usual, there are many options for abbreviating the ride.
For both routes, there will be a stop on the way back at Tablas Creek Vineyards for water and self-supplied nourishment. Those who want lunch can choose from restaurants in Paso Robles or Templeton, depending on which return route they choose.
