The Team KMan Bike Ride for Saturday, August 29, will follow Louise’s storied “Ride, Ride, Ride” route, tracking Highway 58 for more than 16 miles before looping back around to Creston on La Panza Road.
From Creston the basic route back to Atascadero goes by way of Highway 229, Highway 58 and Santa Margarita. That direct route covers 54.9 miles and includes 3020 feet of climbing. A map and a turn-by-turn cue sheet can be found at https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29196279.
There are several ways to lengthen the route, but the mapped longer option leaves from Creston by way of O’Donovan, then goes up Huer Huero and down Park Hill Road, before returning to Atascadero. The mapped long route is 66.9 miles, with 3,737 feet of elevation gain. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29196380.
There will be a regrouping and refueling stop at the general store in Creston. As the general store in Creston has still not reopened, riders are advised to bring nourishment with them, especially if they plan to do a longer version of the ride.
Participating riders will gather at KMan Cycle and Run in Atascadero beginning at 8:00 a.m. and embark at 8:08.
