Tunitas Creek Rest Stop - The Bike Hut

This is really nice of these folks to offer their hospitality for all bikers going through Tunitas Creek:


Dear All,

I wanted to let you all know of The Bike Hut which will be of value to Bay Area cyclists. My wife, Christine, and I recently bought a farm on Tunitas Creek Road in Half Moon Bay - http://potreronuevo farm.org/ - which we're transforming into a non-profit dedicated to the food justice movement. We'll grow organic vegetables and offer nutrition and cooking classes for local low-income families, provide environmental education programs for all ages and more.

But we also have a one-car-garage- sized building right on Tunitas Creek Road which is now named The Bike Hut. Since this road is so popular for bicyclists, we wanted to provide you a rest stop and homemade energy snacks and drinks. At the moment, there's just a small
picnic area for your use and we'll always have free water there for you. It will probably take us a few months, but we're working on recipes for organic/vegan energy snacks and drinks which we'll sell. For now, feel free to stop, picnic, get some water, etc, and keep an
eye out for more developments.

We're one mile inland from Hwy 1. You can't miss The Bike Hut - it's bright red - and a great place to take a pause before starting the ascent up Tunitas Creek Road to Skyline Blvd.

We'd appreciate your passing the word to others in the bicycle community. If you have any ideas on how we can get the word out, please let us know. Also, if any of you are planning any rides or events where we could be a pit stop, please contact us.

Thanks,
Bill and Christine
