Day 1 = 63 miles on most of the 1/2 Vineman route (Fairly flat, except Chalk Hill Rd)
Day 2 = 101 mile Skaggs Spring Loop (Search Map My Ride for Geyserville) (Epic ride!!!)
Day 3 = 48 mile Geyser Peak Loop ( Just to cause Skaggs was not enough B-) )
Having lived in Salinas for 13 years (before cycling) I want to do the route of the Sea Otter Classic Century. I have driven Laureles Grade many times but have never riden it. The remainder of Carmel Valley looks to be challenging as well.
I did a short ride from Monterey through Pebble Beach and back. It was a beautiful 30 miles. If you wanted it longer you could continue down to Big Sur.
I second the ride around Lake Tahoe. That would be great fun.
Love Northern California rides, DR, Tam-Dam Loop, Old LaHonda Pescadero Tunitas, they are all fantastic. But you haven't lived until you have dragged your bike to France and done Alpe d'Huez, Galibier, Col de Fer - commit to doing it before you die or before you get too old!
