As part of the Central Coast Classique Century and Metric Century Routes with Timed K(Q)OM
This year’s annual Central Coast Classique features a familiar climb, the Huasna Hill in Arroyo Grande. This segment has been attempted by almost 1500 cyclists and something of a climbing tradition for the annual event; most notably it’s part of the road that Olympic Gold Medalist Alexi Grewal used to train on. The climb is featured in the full century and 64 mile route for the final leg that runs through the oak tree lined valley of Huasna Valley.
To prepare or not to prepare? That is the question. Some riders like to ride the climb beforehand and use the event as the arc in their training. Others just like to know the numbers, they don’t need to ride the exact segment beforehand, they just need to find a climb equivalent. Whatever your preference is, we’ve got your back and the information to make the most of your experience.
