If I told you that someone was willingly, and regularly, inflicting pain upon him or herself, you would likely think that person was crazy. You might be surprised if I told you that this voluntary self-subjugation to pain is a well-established and commonly practiced behavior that is highly regarded by most societies in the world. In fact, I am nearly certain that you have also engaged in this practice. I’m talking about racing in sports.

The Central Coast has so many things to offer. As a Cal Poly graduate, local business owner and Central Coast resident, I believe that the only thing as great as living here is visiting! From wine tasting to mountain biking, cowboys to surfers, there is something here for everyone and all ages.
My husband, who I met at Cal Poly and has participated with me in Wildflower since we were sophomores, is the Supervising Park Ranger for the City of San Luis Obispo. SLO has 12 different open spaces, 3600 acres of land open to the public with trails, which are roughly 48 miles long. These trails are great for hiking or mountain biking and are mild to straight up hill. Some have spectacular views at the end and some offer fun bridges or obstacles to ride over.
