EROICA California, April 8-10, 2016
L’Eroica, an internationally renowned event originating on the roads of Tuscany, celebrates the sport and legacy of cycling. Enthusiastic cyclists and Eroica legends alike travel far and wide to experience the exhilaration that comes while riding these distinguished courses. In 2015, Eroica brought this prominent cycling event to the United States for the first time with the Central Coast as its hub.
Prepare to be wowed as you speed through Central Coast’s rolling hills and relish in San Luis Obispo County’s ocean view landscapes. Offering four routes ranging from 38-miles to the heroic 120-mile loop, Eroica allows cyclists to choose an experience level perfect for them. In addition to the race, Eroica hosts a three-day Festival, kicking off with a special dinner event in San Luis Obispo on Friday night. Eroica 2016 Festival will also feature a vintage Bicycle Fair, Music in the Park, and Bicycle Concours d’ Elegance exhibit.
Begin your weekend early with Thursday Night Farmers’ Market in San Luis Obispo, known for its lively atmosphere, delicious eats and welcoming culture. Join in San Luis Obispo’s local cycling culture at Bike Night, a monthly ritual where hundreds of enthusiastic bikers cruise the streets of Downtown San Luis Obispo chanting in festive costumes – quite a sight to see. Continue the fun on Friday, April 8th with packet pickup and San Luis Obispo’s special VIP reception, Breaking Away movie viewing and Q&A with special event guests. Purchase your tickets for Eroica CA’s Grand Opening event at the Fremont Theatre!
Whether mountain biking along the Central Coast, wine tasting in Edna Valley or exploring the arts and culture in Downtown San Luis Obispo, there really is something for everyone when visiting the Central Coast.
