Suggested Route Maps for Babes Ride Out 7 x Central Coast

Event InfoAnya Violet

Are you ready to ride? Babes Ride Out is a true riding event which means camp is empty during the day as you are expected to head out and explore the area on two wheels! We’ve curated riding routes from 72-129 miles that will take you through some of the most impeccable riding routes and site that the Central Coast has to offer. There are no organized group rides so if you are looking to tag along with some like minded ladies, post in our facebook event page dedicated to this event as your riding experience, gas tank size, and idea of fun will determine who you may want to link up with. Of course, these are not the only routes you can explore, feel free to google the area and see what fits you and your needs for the day. Anywhere you decide to ride will be epic!

The Central Coast is filled with some of the best motorcycle roads you can find. It was really hard to choose but we have put together 6 of our favorite routes including points of interest like Morro Rock, Ragged Point, Pozo Saloon, Hearst Castle, and Firestone Walker Brewery. But let’s be honest, its the roads in between that are what it is all about. We will have printed route maps on site courtesy of Biltwell but you’ll need and want to download the routes before hand to ensure you are 100% good to go. On Saturday morning, grab a Biltwell route map from the Ecoslo booth, enjoy some breakfast and coffee, then hit the road! Take a scroll to see which routes you want to ride this year.

DISCLAIMER: You are riding at your own risk so please make sure you view the route & mark your gas stops based on tank size, check the local weather where you are going, check for last minute road closures, and have the skill set to ride comfortably. We highly suggest to have a plan if and for some reason your motorcycle breaks down. Babes Ride Out does not have towing or road side assistance to aid you, so please sign up for the Russ Brown Bam Membership card to ensure you have a back up plan (its free).

THE ROCK AND THE BEARS | 72 Miles Round Trip

Features:

  • Morro Rock

  • Montana De Oro State Park

Morro Rock is such a beautiful icon of the central coast. Few know that it is actually a dormant volcano, 1 of the 9 sisters that make up a string of peaks throughout SLO county. This route not only takes you on the fun curves that head to the coast and into the town of Morro Bay but also through the Valley of the Bears (Los Osos) and in to Montana De Oro State Park. Once you leave the rock and ride through the fishing village of Morro Bay you will ride next to the estuary and wildlife preserve. Ride through the tow of los Osos and you will find yourself with some amazing view of the bay and the rock before you enter the Eucalyptus forest. The road ends at Montana De Oro state beach and the best part is you get to ride the gorgeous Pecho Valley road again on your way back in to town. The smell of the Eucalyptus is so beautiful. Take a detour on your way home and hit Turri Rd! An awesomely remote road with rolling hills and fun turns that dumps you back out on to the most direct route back to camp.

Slightly off the beaten track as a possible stop off on this ride is Llyn y fan fact. Tapped by Redbull as one of the UKs best wild swimming spots Llyn y Fan Fach in the Brecon Beacons is supposedly it’s one of the most haunted bodies of water in Wales! Local legend says that at 2pm on the first Sunday in August, the ‘Lady of the Lake’ – rumoured to be a woman killed by her violent husband – emerges from the water. 

Find it: The lake is a bit of an uphill hike after parking up the bikes so be prepared . Brecon Beacons National Park, Llangadog, Carmarthenshire SA19

THE WATERFALL RIDE

Dipping right down into the valley you will reach this absolutely stunning reservoir location by a ride through the most amazing twisty narrow countryside pine covered forest roads we've ever ridden.  a perfect place to stop off for lunch, with a traditional village (complete with traditional country pub for a quick pint) & beautiful waterfalls less than 10 minutes away theres alot to see when you reach Talybont on ask, but the ride there more than equals your destination. This is my favourite ride & even better is its perfect for big or small bikes.
