DAY 5 | CAYUCOS - SOLVANG
SUNDAY 8th OCT
The day starts of in the fabulous beach town of Cayucos and it's usually overcast and almost chilly.
We then head in land through some of the most fertile agricultural land in California. This flat and windy land lends it's self to well formed pace lines were the strong and larger riders often takes turns in the usual strong head winds that blow across this open landscape.
Lunch is in the working town of Santa Maria. Then we leave the flat lands behind as we very gently climb up into wine country. The ride through Foxon Canyon is one the most beautiful moments of the entire ride with beautiful wineries calling the riders into them like Sirens calling to lost sailors.
Those who make it past the thirty or so wineries often treat themselves to great dinners and bottles of wine in Solvang and Los Olivos.
