Take the road less traveled
Leave your set of four wheels at home and opt for two-wheeling fun this year. Better for the environment and better for you, making the resolution to bike more will lead you to picturesque places that a car could never reach. San Luis Obispo County offers plenty of beginning, intermediate, and advanced rides for anyone to enjoy! From the beautiful Bob Jones Trail in Avila Beach to Hazard Peak in Montana de Oro, our scenic coastline will inspire you to add a new trail to your repertoire and explore the natural environment all year long. Whether you choose to ride for recreation or in day-to-day life by riding to work or school, biking is a fun experience that makes it worth it to take the road less traveled in 2019.
Wine a little, learn a lot
You don’t always have to give something up when it comes to New Year’s resolutions. Instead, make the resolution to educate yourself about the hobbies you do enjoy, like wine tasting, for example. There have always been rumors that a little red wine here and there is good for the heart. In fact, according to the Mayo Clinic, antioxidants and a “polyphenol called resveratrol in red wine may help protect the lining of blood vessels in your heart.” While there is no clear evidence suggesting red wine is better for you than any other alcohol, that’s all the information we need to continue indulging in fine Paso Robles wine from time to time, without the guilt. During your visit to Paso Robles Wine Country this new year, challenge yourself to learn more about the wine in your glass. Several local wineries offer educational events like blending seminars and pairing tastings throughout the year to help amateur wine enthusiasts understand the science behind this tasty indulgence.
