Arthritis Foundation Bicycle Ride Through Central Coast
The Arthritis Foundation’s California Coast Classic Bicycle Ride will move through Monterey, San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties beginning Tuesday, Sept. 12 through Friday, Sept. 15. The cyclists will use portions of Highways 1, 46 West, 101, 154, 166 and 246 during the daytime hours as they travel through the Central Coast to the Santa Barbara/Ventura County line.
In addition, the southbound #2 (right) lane of US Highway 101 just south of Buellton will be closed on Friday, Sept. 15 between the hours of 7 am and 10 am to allow the cyclists to safely proceed where the shoulder width is narrow.
Law enforcement and ride officials will be located along the route to ensure the safety of motorists, participants and pedestrians. Motorists are advised to be aware of the riders as they move through the area and to ‘share the road’.
