Southern California 3 night bike tour, June 21-24
Below is an itinerary for a short 200 mile 3 night bike tour from San Luis Obispo to Los Angeles leaving on June 21.
There are 2 confirmed riders and i am putting this ride out to the public to see if anybody else is interested.
I have done this trip several times, its along the coast, and we will have nice weather.
I have a full bike touring rig, but it really isnt necessary for this trip.
just about any bike with a rack (or a big backpack) would work. This ride is doable with a single speed as well. I have met guys touring on
fixed gears with a backpack.
I have good mechanical skill, but a decent working bike with some tools and tubes is needed. Total cost will be less than 100 bucks.
If you want to try bike touring, this is an easy intro. There are food stores all along the way, you dont need a stove. tents are optional as
well, it will be warm
