The month cannot come soon enough!

The next time you are in Carmel by the Sea, have a stay at The Hofsas House. Celebrate the unique power of the bicycle and the many reasons to ride. General Manager Carrie Thies’ favorite bike routes is about five miles that goes from The Hofsas House, down to Scenic Avenue going south along the Carmel Bay and to the Carmel River. Stop by the Carmel Mission for a bit of history and go along Rio Road and cross Highway 1 and have lunch at Rio Grill  The grilled artichoke is the best!
