San Luis Obispo, CA - Santa Cruz, CA
|Parked along Hwy 1 and starting the Partington Cove trail|
My second bike trip was from my home in San Luis Obispo, CA to another friends house in Santa Cruz, CA. It was a classic ride up Hwy 1 with one of my good friends. Not much else to say about it other than it was raining north of Big Sur and we didn't have any rain gear! It was my first time riding up Hwy 1.
Bike: Honda NT650GT
Time: 5 hours
Sights: Old San Luis Obispo Mission in San Luis Obispo, CA

Many vista points of the ocean along Hwy 1
Hike Partington Cove Trail to a small rocky beach (36.177072, -121.693749)
Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk (only during the summer)
Warning: Fill up in Cambria! The only gas along the Hwy 1 before Monterey is in Gorda and they charge at least $1 more then everyone else per gallon. Ive gone through there after this first ride and seen it as high as $8 per gallon.
