First Multi-Day Ride Planning

I ride daily on my commute and take day trips on the weekends but have never done a multi-day ride. Thinking about keeping it simple for the first time around and have this route planned for a simple overnight down the coast and back with the GF on her bike too. Looking for some feedback if I am missing a huge opportunity, or if it would be better to do the ride in the reverse order. Plan for now is to head out and complete the circuit clockwise.

Might consider 25 to Bitterwater or Lonoak to King city. Better than droning down 101.

Allow time to visit the Talbott Musem in Carmel Valley. Well worth the side trip.

Perfectly acceptable weekend retreat. Have fun. The miles are a little lite but it's a great first time weekender.

Yeah not many miles but the plan is to stop a lot and look around, possibly hike some.

Some feedback from my experience

Plan your fuel stops. Last time I tried this I messed up a fuel stop and ruined the loop.

I also remember last time I attempted Hwy 1 to Hwy 5, I ended up finding a bunch of roads that turn into private roads that you can't go through. Don't exactly recall what road it was, I was riding Nacimiento Ferguson but may have tried to go a different way and had to go back the way I came.

Good luck!

Work in McKean/Uvas/G8 getting down to Gilroy to avoid some of US-101

Hwy 1 is full of slow tourists, be patient and stop frequently to take in the vistas ... unless the marine layer paints everything grey

Motels are cheaper near King City than along the Pacific Ocean. Not as romantic, but budget friendly.

Good plan. +1 to some Uvas.

Cienga road through Hollister OHV is a nice little diversion.

If you want to do some exploring or perhaps take a long lunch, 100 miles/day is about right. Easy to extend if you want more riding.

Depending on how you time it, I would probably error on the west side taking more time and more stop & go from a couple's perspective. There's not much to see when you're on 25 fwiw, you're just flogging it in either direction and it's very hot. I would do clockwise if the first day I wanted to just do some twisties and get to the cooler coastline by evening.

How comfortable are you and your gf in the twisties? I love NacFerg road but some people may find it complex.

It does for me. Are you using a phone or PC/mac?
