These cyclists are getting more than exercise on their route along Big Sur.
They’re also enjoying fantastic views of the Central California coastline. It takes a lot of strength and conditioning to peddle up the steep sections of the Pacific Coast Highway, and these three don’t seem to be having any trouble. Coasting down from the top must really be a thrill!
The Big Sur region is about 90 miles long from Carmel to San Simeon. There are gorgeous vistas all along the way. If you go, remember that cars and bikes have to share the two lane winding highway and visibility is limited going around the curves. So be cautious, but definitely take time to see Big Sur when you visit California — whether you do your coasting on a bike or in a car.
