Visiting SLO County without a car

The Ventura County Star recently ran an article about visiting San Luis Obispo County without a car, by taking advantage of bringing bikes on Amtrak’s Surfliner trains.

If you’re considering traveling along the Southern California coast, Amtrak recently announced that bringing a bike on the Southern Surfliner train line is FREE! Allowing writer David Loe the opportunity to travel to San Luis Obispo for the 4th of July weekend without ever being in a car!

We not only succeeded, it was a lot of fun. It’s a trip I’d recommend to anyone who enjoys either walking or pedaling. You’ll return home with a great feeling of accomplishment, and, as you’ll see, it’s not that tough to pull off.
