USAL Hopper: The Lost Coast

October 15 @ 8:00 am - October 16 @ 5:00 pm


Chosen as one of our best gravel cycling events in California, the Lost Coast off-road biking event is an extremely beautiful and unique experience organized by Hopper Adventures. There is a rural and uninhabited strip of land that hugs California’s rugged coastline which is named the Lost Coast. Hopper Adventures has been able to make a partnership with local organizations and its park services which is allowing this cycling event in such a remote area to showcase its restoration services and pure beauty that hadn’t been possible before. There are three lengths of rides to choose from. The El Chiquito is a 32-mile off-road loop with over 4,000 feet of climbing. The El Mediano is 43 miles with nearly 7,000 feet of climbing, and finally, the El Mero-Mero is 60 miles with a leg bringing 8,500 feet of elevation gain respectively. The El Mediano and the Mero-Mero will be timed making it more are themed while the Chiquito is non-timed making it more relaxing and fun for more levels or riders or people just wanting to enjoy the beauty. Being mixed surface, people elect to use a range of bike quiver for the event with their being a split between gravel and mountain bikes. The roads are. a mix of hard-packed dirt, loose gravel, pavement, and rutted county first roads. There will be two rest stops along the routes and competitive categories with prizing are included. The Lost Coast is a very unique and visually stunning off-road cycling/mountain biking event that should be at the very top of every rider’s bucket list.
