The Coast Ride

Move Your Boundaries on the West Coast

You only live once and if you enjoy cycling, you’ll love the chance to test yourself and experience one of the best rides in North America. While the Northeast is bundled up and hunkered down in winter weather choose to ride down the scenic coast of California in the more moderate temps of the West Coast.

The Coast Ride is still a grassroots event attended mostly by locals. For East Coasters, having the logistics tied up prior to the event is instrumental to enjoying all this ride has to offer. In 2019, Sherpa is going to take care of the logistics that will be most important to making this experience just about the training and riding. If you are looking for a mid off-season goal for next year, this is the perfect option.

This is a challenge. 390 miles of cycling over 3 days down the coast from San Francisco to Santa Barbara.  In 2018, we sent a small scouting party to experience the ride for ourselves. The take-aways include:

  • Have your logistics set early and right.
  • Riding along the coast is not flat. There is climbing involved.
  • Prepared early.
  • None of us can be prepared for the scenery. It is beautiful.
  • Riding and socializing with other riders (pros, national champs and the best bike teams on the west coast) is a blast.
  • The beer and food at the end of each day is SO GOOD!

*Want to join but not ready for the full distance? Half Day Lunch Option available: we’ll organize pick up options at the half way point each day.
