9:30-12:30PM – 25-mile Group Ride Our route is primarily along the beautiful coastline. We’ll have a rest and group photo stop at Natural Bridges State park, and another a few miles later at Longs Marine Lab. After 15 miles, we’ll be back near the start and continue south along the coast for another 5 miles toward Capitola before returning to the finish.

The route has some hills but overall it’s easy to moderate riding. There are ample public bathrooms along the way as well as many photo opportunities.
