The last rest stop (Rincon Park) closes at 4:30pm so time your ride start accordingly.

Due to Construction by Caltrans in the La Conchita Area, car and bike lanes have been narrowed: routes have been changed to lower the number of riders passing this area in the morning. Please be patient. This project will add a two-way class 1 bike path on the Ocean side of the highway.
Ride responsibly. The Century riders not electing the Hilly option will be on the 101 highway for about 2 ½ miles Northbound and both Centuries and Double will be on the 101 highway for about
4 miles Southbound.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU RIDE AS FAR AS YOU CAN TO THE RIGHT AND THAT YOU DO NOT PASS OTHER RIDERS!!
