I've done Carmel Valley Road from the inland side, and it's a really nice climb. I'm not exactly sure how you would get there from Carmel. I know you want to be on River Road outside Salinas, then down to Arroyo Seco. I guess you would have to take Hwy 68 past Laguna Seca to get there. Along River Road, you'll ride through some great Pinot Noir vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands applelation. Gary's Vineyard, Rosella's vinyard, etc. It's world class stuff.

I believe you can also do some riding on Fort Ord land. You can go in the entrance for Laguna Seca, which is an incredibly steep climb. Where you go from there, I don't know.
