I think there is a decent chance we can get a short ride done before the rain. The route gives us options to bail early if a storm is rolling in and we can extend through Creston, if the day is shaping up well. Morning rain will cancel the ride.
Head out east on 41 to a left on Atascadero Ave, right on the Mall, left on Ardilla, right on Traffic, left on ECR, left onto 101 north, exit Vineyard and head right to continue onto El Pomar. Then it’s a left on Neal Spring to Creston Rd (Stop 1 – 13.1 miles). We take Creston Rd to a right on S El Pomar, left on El Pomar and right on Cripple Creek to Hwy 41 (Stop 2 – 19.1 miles) From here we examine the weather outlook and either head back to Atascadero with a right on 41 and return to the zoo or we go left on 41 and right on 229, through Creston and the right on 58 though Santa Margarita and then head north on El Camino and make our way back to the zoo.
