I live right on the Pacific Coast Bikeway, by Morro Bay, California. I went on a ride yesterday up Highway 1 to north of Cayucos. I saw at least 4 groups of loaded tourers heading south. It seems a bit late in the year for me, but then anytime is a good time to get out and tour, right?
If anyone ever has any questions about this part of the route, I'm local and a tourer.
Two guys were stopped on South Bay Boulevard, checking their map. I asked if they wanted any help. They said no. I was wondering if they were wondering about the Turri Road section, whether they were looking for something (breakfast, bike shop?) etc. I guess I'll never know.
