Road Cycling Highlight
To connect your rides in and around SLO, you do need to spend a little time on Highway 101. That sounds daunting, but there are great bike lanes to zip you along until you can adventure off the beaten path.

In a few places along the coast, the scenic 2-lane Coastal Highway 1 has been merged with the 101 Freeway. While freeways are usually closed to bikes, there are a few places where there is simply no other road available. This is a clearly marked, easy access ramp for bikes to enter, and to leave the freeway at the next exit. The shoulder is wide, and though biking on a freeway might not sound too attractive, it can be safer than on the often shoulderless and narrower roads. In all cases, blinking tail lights and reflective clothing helps to be even more visible. Traffic here is usually light, and the views are still amazing.
