Cannon Coasters take on the California Coast


San Luis Obispo-September 13, 2019—Starting September 13, our very own Loose Cannon cyclists are finishing the last leg of their impressive journey along the California Coast. The team of bicycle enthusiasts have conquered five of the six sections. The final length will bring the Coaster team to a total of 1,070 miles.

John Evans, lead Cannon Coaster, said about the feat, ”Riding along the California Coast, about 200 miles at a time, on an annual- basis has been a goal of Cannon’s Coasters goal to ride the entire length of California and then move up to Oregon! So far we have ridden from San Luis Obispo to Santa Monica, Santa Cruz to San Luis Obispo, Jenner to Santa Cruz, and Santa Monica to Mexico.”

The last part of the race in also the longest! Totaling a whopping 170 miles, the ride will take place the third week in September starting at the Oregon border and finishing with a beautiful traverse through the middle of the northern California redwood forest.

Meeting challenging goals is what Cannon does best; the Coasters are already planning their next adventure in 2020 with a ride that will tour the coastal route from SLO to Santa Monica.
