Updated: Apr 27
If you find yourself on this page looking for some great cycling routes with less vehicle traffic in Paso Robles, you’re in the right spot! We have some amazing back roads to bike and experience the Central Coast. Rent an electric bike from us or ride your own, I will be publishing a series of my top 5 local rides. This is Ride # 2
My second ride recommendation is the East Loop.
East Paso Loop
This route is on the east side of Paso Robles with lots of amazing views and rolling hills planted with vineyards. This part of Paso reminds me of what it was like when I was growing up in the area.
Mileage: 24 mi
Description: Sun drenched rolling Vineyards
Road Type: Paved
Elevation Gain: Gradual gain of 482 ft
Bike Types: Road / Electric Bike
Tips for the Day:
Bring layers and gloves (depending on the season)
Book lunch at Cass Winery if you can otherwise, Think about bringing lunch on your ride by picking up sandwiches or salads from Red Scooter Deli (Local tip: order online ahead of time)
Google has offline maps that you can download so you can always know where you are
Try and make reservations for the first two spots you visit
Start off by heading downtown to get a cup of coffee from AMSTRDM. Head out of town on 13th st. After crossing the bridge take a quick right onto our short riverwalk bike path. Follow it as it turns into Navajo Ave and ride it across River Rd. till you connect with the Centennial Park Bike path. The bike path T’s into Creston rd. Follow that for a minute or two till you turn left on Niblick Rd. This will become Linne rd. Note: You could also just stick to 13th St. until it turns into Creston Rd. The route above is more scenic.
We recommend making a reservation at Dresser Winery . This hidden gem is just outside of town and has some amazing Reds and great scenery.
Hit the road for wine/lunch at Cass Winery or for something different check out the organic Wind Rose Farm. Both have a lot to offer and interesting aspects to behold.
After a great lunch jump back on your bike for a slight hill climb on Geneso Rd. till you meet Union rd. Union Rd. boasts a lot of wine options. We recommend Rails Nap, Pear Valley or Steinbeck. Steinbeck offers a one of a kind jeep tour we highly recommend.
Once you wrap up visiting along union rd you can basically rid it all the way back to 13th st. IF you are hungry on the way back for a milkshake maybe stop by Bronco Burger
