Club Ride To
Madonna Inn
San Luis Obispo

Back to the Future
by Ron Dumont

 Ok we don’t need a Delorean or 1.21 Gigawatts to go back in time. Lets head to the uniquely themed Madonna Inn that has a Swiss-Alps exterior and a 60’s throwback feel inside and dine at the Copper Café.  Here's a link to their menu. And for the men that need a bathroom break, you can visit the Rock Waterfall Urinal. Be careful as women often go in there just to check it out. Haha.

We will be taking the 101 north to the 154, and in Los Olivos go up Foxen Canyon to our first gas and break stop at the Santa Maria Chevron 100 miles from the start. From there it’s back on the 101 to the 196 exit and on to See Canyon rd. where near the end it turns to gravel for a short stretch. Continuing on the gravel of Prefumo Canyon Rd for a bit then back to pavement and into San Luis Obispo and the Madonna Inn. Carla says the pie at the Copper Caffe is the best so you might want to save room for desert. After lunch we will head toward home on the 101 again and catch the 1 in Arroyo Grande. After passing the historic town of Guadalupe we will take Black Rd. that takes us past the rustic town of Casmalia,  once a red light district for the Union Oil Company workers. We will then make our way to Los Alamos via the 135 where we will have another gas stop 100 miles from the first one. From there it’s back on the 101 into Santa Barbara (SB) to avoid the heat in the Santa Ynez Valley. We will take the 192 along the foothills of (SB), Montecito, and Carpinteria to end the ride at the Rincon Brewery under their covered patio to say our goodbyes and cool off with a cold one.
