The Team KMan Bike Ride for Saturday, August 8, is the Chimney Rock/Cypress Mt/Klau Mine Loop, counterclockwise, from Vineyard Drive. 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.
There are many obvious ways for individual riders to shorten or lengthen the route to suit their particular preferences or needs.
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. (Please carry masks to wear at Tablas Creek if you plan to stop there.) 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. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29585136. Going out to the end of Chimney Rock and returning via Vineyard Drive and Templeton entails 66.9 miles and 4554 feet of climbing. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28856536
