Dan Henry Bike Route

Solvang to Los Olivos via Alamo Pintado Rd and Grand Ave

The Dan Henry Bike Route connects Solvang with Los Olivos. It starts on Alamo Pintado Rd at the Eastern end of the "historic" Solvang downtown. After 2/3 you make a couple of quick turns (just follow the signs for the Dan Henry Bike Route) into Grand Ave which leads you into down town Los Olivos.

In case you wondered, Dan Henry is "a bicycling legend and inventor of directional pavement markings commonly used to guide participants along the route of organized bicycling events. The markers themselves are usually called 'Dan Henrys'".

The Dan Henry Bike Route is part of the Solvang Century. It connects the Lompoc-to-Solvang leg via Santa Rosa Rd and Hwy 246 on the one side and Foxen Canyon Rd on the other. Alternatively you can take Figueroa Mountain Rd for a nice climb. The road is the continuation of Grand Ave beyond Hwy 154.
