Cambria Bike Ride to Linns Farmstore

Cambria Bike Ride to Linns Farmstore


From the issue Cambria Coaster

Piece of the Pie

Ingredients for a delicious bike ride: a quiet country road, cascading green hills, pastoral farmland, and one tasty olallieberry pie. Santa Rosa Creek Road leaves right from Cambria's Main Street and winds 5 miles (one-way) through a peaceful valley, passing tractors, windmills, and big old red barns. The turnaround point hits the sweet spot, literally. Roll up to Linn's Original Farmstore for a slice of their famous olallieberry pie. Generously sized, piping-hot mini-pies are served as single portions, and the berries are mixed with the perfect amount of cane sugar for a melt-in-your-mouth treat. Grab a seat on the shaded patio and keep an eye out for the resident peacock that occasionally puts on a colorful display. Return the way you came. Berry nice ride.

BONUS: Although it's within riding distance, we recommend driving to Harmony Cellars, just a few miles south on Highway 1. The bountiful valley views pair beautifully with an excellent new-release Bordeaux blend, Aria Sauvignon. Beginning June 22, Harmony is open Friday nights until 7:00 p.m. throughout the summer.

Start the bike ride at Main St. and Santa Rosa Creek Rd. in Cambria (map). Linn's Original Farmstore is located at 6275 Santa Rosa Creek Rd. Harmony Cellars is located at 3255 Harmony Valley Rd.
