Team K-Man Ride, Sat, December 21 @ 8:30am

The Team KMaBikRidfor Saturday, December 21, is the Chimney Rock/Cypress Mt/Klau Mine Loop, counterclockwise, from Vineyard Drive. As this will be the Team KMan Christmas ride, a Christmas song or two might be sung along the way. In view of this possibility, riders are encouraged to brush up on song lyrics and vocalizing in advance of the ride.

The full route goes out to the end of Chimney Rock Road and back, then loops around on Cypress Mountain and Klau Mine Roads, returning through Paso Robles via the climb and descent on Adelaida Road. Those who don’t want to go to Paso Robles can return through Templeton via Vineyard Drive, Booker and Las Tablas Roads.

The riders will gather at KMan Cycle and Run in Atascadero at 8:30 a.m., and depart at 8:38.

There will be a stop on the return at Tablas Creek Vineyards for water and self-supplied nourishment. Those who want lunch on the way back can choose from restaurants in Paso Robles or Templeton, depending on which return route they choose.

The complete route to the end of Chimney Rock, returning via Adelaida and Paso Robles, is 70 miles, with 4805 feet of elevation gain. Going out to the end of Chimney Rock and returning via Vineyard Drive and Templeton entails 66.9 miles and 4554 feet of climbing.

Team KMan has been encouraging and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle, while having fun, since 2003.  For Information on Team KMan and how to join please visit us at
