If you nave not been to the Rock Store your missing out. It is a true destination nestled in some beautiful canyon roads. There are always 200-300 bikes parked in front and if you get there early on Friday, you are sure to see a celeb or two. Bring your camera on this on and plan to stop several time as the views keep changing from ocean views while riding down a mountain canyon road to scenic valleys. If your in this area, you cannot go wrong with this ride.
This is a very nice ride. Elevation gets over 8000 feet so it is best from Spring to early fall. We rode it this weekend (late March) and the weather was beautiful in the mid 50s. Plenty of snow still on the ground for some great vistas. Plan for about 2 hours to ride this route with another 1-2 hours for lunch. I highly recommend the Pulled Pork Grabbers at the Hot Spot. This place is not meant for the politically correct minded folks. It is a feel free to write on the walls type of place. If your in the mood for a tamer place... Check out Chads Place. Its nice too.
