Plan to Spend Some Time on Two Wheels at the Bicycle Leadership Conference.

The Monterey Bay Coastal Bike Path is an oceanfront trail covering 18 miles, from Castroville in the north to Pacific Grove in the south. Following the same route once used by the Southern Pacific Railway, the trail goes right by Cannery Row, Lover’s Point, the Maritime Museum, Fisherman’s Wharf, and much more.

Not only is there fantastic cycling right from the doorstep of the Monterey Plaza Hotel, there is also the Sea Otter Classic starting on Thursday at nearby Laguna Seca Raceway. This four-day extravaganza of cycling features road and mountain bike competition and recreational rides. And the expo is the kickoff bash to the American cycling season.

GROUP RIDES DURING BLC

Unlike most business conferences, the Bicycle Leadership Conference is actually a bike-friendly experience. The 23-mile route loop will follow the dramatic Pacific coastline into beautiful Pebble Beach along the famous Seventeen Mile Drive.

The 2018 Bicycle Leadership Conference will include two Group Bicycle Rides beginning at 7:00 am on Wednesday and Thursday. Each ride will be supported with guides; all registered BLC attendees are encouraged to participate, regardless of experience level. We will provide a release when you pick up your registration materials onsite and ask that you sign the release if you plan to participate in either Group Ride.

Bosch ePowered Bikes

For those interested in trying an eBike, kick off Thursday morning of BLC with a leisurely 20-mile tour on a pedal-assist electric bike. Meet in front of the hotel at 7:15 am. Enjoy a beautiful coastal ride out-and-back to Pebble Beach. The all pavement demo e-bikes will be provided by Bosch free of charge for the event. Contact Paul Jones at paul.jones1@us.bosch.com  to reserve a bike. Please include name, contact email, contact phone number, height, if you will bring your helmet and if you would prefer a step-thru frame.
