Central Coast Solvang Weekend
This is a two-night, three day ride up California’s beautiful central coast to Solvang. We’ll be staying Friday night and Saturday night in Solvang. Lodging details are below.
Friday’s route takes us through backside of Santa Monica mountains, to Malibu, up the coast to Oxnard, through Santa Barbara to a stop at the historic Mission Santa Barbara. From here, we’ll get lunch at Cold Springs Tavern, then on to Solvang for shopping, check-in and dinner in town.
Saturday we’ll have an optional day ride or stay in town for shopping and wine tasting. After an early breakfast in town, our ride will go through the Garcia Wilderness and Machesna Mountain Wilderness, out to the central valley, then through the hills to the secluded Pozo Saloon for a later lunch. We’ll come back through San Luis Obispo to Solvang – we’ll meet up with the rest of the group early evening back in town for dinner and revelry.
After Saturday night’s fun, Sunday we’ll take a mid-morning start. The route back will be through Los Padres National Forest, lunch stop at Mike’s Pizza Co, Lockwood Valley road to gas in Frazier Park, then back down I-5 home.
Final route and stops subject to change based on local conditions and closures.
