The trip began in Sand Metropolis which is subsequent to Monterey on the coast. There’s a paved bike path that runs alongside there (the Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Path, 18 miles lengthy, which begins in Castroville). We took that to its finish in Pacific Grove out on the Monterey peninsula, then took coastal roads in Pacific Grove round to the beginning of 17 mile drive which runs via Pebble Seaside to Carmel.
