Almaden Cycling and Touring Club Annual Event:
This year’s Big Sur Overnighter is October 28-29, 2017. BSO may be an even more exciting tour this year! And now is a perfect time to sign up via Paypal payment. See the details below:
When: Pre-sunrise Saturday October 28 to late day October 29, 2017, per conditions, expect 88 miles per day with climbs.
Cost: Early Bird per person is 109.00 paid prior to October 1, 2017: PayPal to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Include memo: “BSO 2017”. Space is limited so please pay early! Plus be sure your ACTC.org membership is good!
Terms: This is a rain or shine event and all contributions convert to tour funds and are not refundable after October 15, 2017.
Legs? Your current climbing season is perfect preparation for enjoying BSO.
RideShare? Most likely you can carpool to start once our road conditions and group are set.
Slides? Due to road conditions and group safety, more vehicles are not used during this tour, except for our group SAG van, or if our group exceeds normal capacity (8-24 max.), or if unexpected situations like lost sheep.
Route: IMPORTANT: There will be a new 2017 route, may be quite different than what is currently listed with rides@ACTC.org, due to current impassable highway conditions south of Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, per conditions closest to the date. (Currently Mule Creek Trail is the trail connection, by foot only, shouldering your bike, to cross the breach at Pfeiffer Canyon and this may continue to our BSO date). So check your email after October 15th for the current link!
If CA-1 is closed south past Pfeiffer Big Sur SP, then pocket food will be provided in advance for you to carry, and the SAG will depart from our group to shuttle gear by separate route to our lodging. There are public wet restrooms and retail support at Posts and Lucia (the latter can be spendy) for your personal funds. This may mean a longer leg on Day 1 without SAG support for the rest of the day after our mid morning regroup.
What’s Included: Pre-paid shared (furnished) “Half-Star” lodging (e.g. dormitory style, common restrooms) for Saturday night, Saturday group patio dinner, food and drink pocket or SAG support both days.
History: Check prior BSO Ride Stats! This annual Halloween tour has been going on for a while! Jerry Schonewille’s brilliant tour!
Conditions: We have pedaled in weather from drenching rain to extreme heat, if not brilliant coastal cycling! We’ve always done it!
Be sure to check your email after October 15 for updates.
Repeat: Paid by Paypal is your Bona-Fide Sign Up Confirmation for BSO2017!
