El Camino Adventure Ride
We are offering sweet loops of four distances – 25, 65, 105 and 205 miles. Rural roads are paved near towns (sadly) so the longer the ride, the more dirt/gravel encountered. The 25 mile loop is all on pavement. All rides are loops, so you have constantly changing scenery and challenges. Boredom and pain are the two great challenges to human happiness. We will not offer you boredom. Pain is up to you. A good saddle and quality cycling togs will help a ton!
All routes provide varied terrain. There are narrow primitive bridges, pot holes, animals, loose gravel and other hazards. There are short hills – some fairly steep – coming out of creeks and such. Riders must use caution and care when crossing creeks – speed is not always your friend in those situations, but discretion is.
El Camino has about 7,100 feet of climbing over the 205 mile route. There are frequent short climbs to make things interesting, but it is not impossible for a first time rider. The 105 route has about 4,600 feet of climbing - just enough to make it fun. The 65 even has some climbing too - what goes up...
