Between Ragged Point and San Simeon is described as the best cycling that you may experience. This is the Southern end of the Big Sur. There is a good walking trail noted. San Simeon was next and the big attraction is the Hearst Castle build about 100 years ago.
This point is about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Cambria is a small community along the coast.
This area became a settlement when Swiss immigrants began dairy operations in the late 1800s. Rivalry between farmers, lead to feuds and eventually to a truce. This arrangement led to the town's name.
Cayucos is a town of about 2400. This area was settled 11,000 years ago by the Chumash people and they also inhabited many of the areas that I recently traveled through. These indigenous people fished in the bay using a small canoe. Cayucos is the Spanish word for "small canoe."
Morro Bay is a bigger town (10,200). It is nice to roll into these places to stock up and take care of a variety of tasks. This harbor area gets a lot of use from a variety of sized boats. There is another nice beach area.
I love my riding days and look to find interesting and informative items to share.
