-GREAT BREAKS-

-START TIMES- 

 Riders can start between 6:30am and 9:30am.

Please DO NOT start early. The rest stops and SAG vehicles will not be ready for you! The last rest stop (Rincon Park) closes at 4:30pm so time your ride start accordingly. Start location is off Highway 33 in Ventura at the Ventura Unified School District Education Service Center at 255 W. Stanley Avenue. Showers will be available.  Please bring your own towel and soap.  Click here for the "location map."

 

-THE ROUTES-
Due to Construction by Caltrans in the La Conchita Area, Bikes are behind k-rail on hillside side of freeway in BOTH North and Southbound directions. Please be patient. This project will add a two-way class 1 bike path on the Ocean side of the highway.
Ride responsibly. K-rail section along freeway is very narrow in places. Make sure you stop at La Conchita Entrance as car are exiting freeway at high speed.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO NOT PASS OTHER RIDERS !!

Southbound entrance is @ Bates Road Off-Ramp.

Here is a the map.Bates Road detour map

In order to provide a continuous and safe temporary bike route along the highway, ALL bike traffic (both northbound and southbound) will ride on the northbound shoulder of the highway, protected by k-rail. This temporary bike path will run from the Bates Rd northbound off-ramp to the Old Pacific Coast Highway, through our yard/staging area across from Mobile Pier.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT
that all cyclists ride in this designated bike path, since there will no longer be a bike lane on the southbound shoulder of the highway. Cyclists need to use extreme caution when crossing the entrance to La Conchita, since vehicles have the right of way.
