My father and I carried a pair of electric Rad Power bikes up the ½-mile bypass trail built by emergency crews. Our plan was to use these bikes as a utilitarian form of transportation. The next morning, we decided to test the bikes’ range and ended up making it all the way to McWay Falls and back. I was grinning so wide that my face almost split! An hour later, I drew up a business plan for Big Sur Adventures.
The chance to ride Highway 1 through Big Sur with no traffic was a unique opportunity. I heard so many people say that they wished Highway 1 could just shut down to cars. When it reopened, we needed to find another place where we could ride peacefully all day, another place that could give us that “perma-grin”. Point Lobos blew us away. The bike paths along the oceanfront in Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach also left us smiling all day.
At the end, we found a space in Pacific Grove, right where our favorite ride starts.
We hope that one day, it might become your favorite ride too!
