The first Team KMan Bike Ride for 2021 will take place on Saturday, January 2, 2021. The route highlights the climb up Chimney Rock Road from Nacimiento Lake Road.
The ride will start at KMan Cycle and Run in Atascadero where riders will gather beginning at 9:00 for an 9:08 departure. From Atascadero the route goes north on River Road to San Miguel (where there will be a regrouping stop at the park). From there the route turns southwest, following San Marcos Road to Nacimiento Lake Road, where we turn right and head west to Chimney Rock Road. After the climb up Chimney Rock, the prescribed return route takes Adelaida Road to Paso Robles. There will be a stop for refueling at the Paso Market Walk at 1803 Spring Street. From Paso Robles it is back to Atascadero via Vine Street, Ramada Road and Templeton Road.
The complete route covers 68.2 miles, with 3,586 feet of elevation gain. Route details are contained in the attached Microsoft Word document. Additional information and maps can be obtained at https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28833884
For those with limited time, the ride can be shortened in various ways, for example: by doing a San Miguel out-and-back along River Road; by going directly to Paso Robles from San Marcos Road and bypassing Chimney Rock and Adelaida; or by returning to Atascadero by way of Vineyard Drive instead of Adelaida Road.
