We've been coming for years and will continue to as long as the legs let us. We participate in several annual events and this has always been our favorite. The various routes offer something for everyone, and the views near Monterey are simply astounding.
My friend and I completed the 53-miler. This area is breathtakingly beautiful and the roads are well maintained. The volunteers were so kind and made extra sure we were safe and protected from traffic. Loved the exotic flavors of maple syrup on the ice cream at the end.
