I wish !

I believe you are referring to Moran State Park …? … I was at Moraine State Park … 15 miles or so and just 500 ft elevation gain …

https://www.traillink.com/trail/mora...rk-bike-trail/

but often will include some of the area roads when doing this ride - makes a nice loop

Doh! My bad. But the ride you shared looks beautiful.

Now I need to get back to work on reading comprehension.

back from 3 days of varied riding in San Luis Obispo County. We quartered in Morro Bay, and rode around - Montana de Oro, Profumo - See Cyn to Avilla Bch & Avilla, Pismo and up in the wIne country of Templeton/San Rita Rd areas. Casual, taking in the sights, country and farms for very fresh berries, fruits and salad making produce!
Magical !

Top of Profumo-See Cyn ride to Avila Bch with Karen. Morro Rock in the Bay view, center of pic.


Montana de Oro - a Bay in the State Park

a short break in the ever present 'Marine Cloud Layer' on one day, A beautiful area, only a few hour drive from home...
Wonderful !
Ride On

The pelicans taking over the dock. They have been having a rough time finding food but I heard locally there has been a huge school of anchovies that have moved in.

Yeah, it's about the time of year when fish rain from the sky.

Black Mesa from La Mesilla

I don't usually ride NM 399 in this direction - too many impatient drivers with dualie pickups live in La Mesilla. But on the Sundays of Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends, I make an exception when many are either out of town, or relaxing and taking it easy. It's a nice ride.

Did a 76 mile climbing ride with 4 friends. Been a while since I've been this tired. But it's a good tired.
