There may be no public parking immediately at the top of T***tas, but there is a public parking lot nearby at Skeggs Point and another one at Purisima OSP. Bring your mountain bike and ride the trails parallel to T***tas. You can also park in Half Moon Bay and ride your mountain bike up through Purisima OSP to T***tas.

Remember that there will be a lot of road closures because of the race itself, so trying to travel along the race route may be very hard. Those racers will be traveling at a pretty good speed from T***tas to Santa Cruz, so you may not be able to keep up via side roads, even in a car.

And a fun ride it is, too... if you don't mind having your teeth vibrate out of your head.
Pacifica roads are -um- interesting to ride on and they're one BIG reason why I sold my aluminum bikes and kept my CF and steel. I should post the video I shot a couple of weeks ago.

Another good place might just be where they hit the intersection of Pine Flat Road and Empire Grade as that road is also very tight but there are some houses that have big driveways that you could always sit in.
They call me "Mr. Mixte"
