To The Coast. 109 Miles. Time To Pedal.
Biking 109 miles from JH Ranch to the Pacific Coast is one of the most memorable things you will ever do. Your two-day journey begins with a 27 mile downhill bomb, followed by 50 more miles of beautiful back-country California roads. Day 2 starts with the infamous 9-mile uphill ride, followed by three smaller hills in an area we call “little Ireland” for how beautiful it is (if you are lucky, you might see a wild Elk herd wander nearby). Then you’ll feel the temperature clearly drop as you blast through the Redwood Forest, whose trees are larger than your car, and arrive at the Pacific Coast for a dip in the ocean and a well-earned pizza party. You’ll camp out in the Redwoods, near where the famous Endor racing scenes of Star Wars Episode 5 were filmed, and then head back to JH for the banquet night celebration.
