Back in mid 1800s when San Gregorio was a major stop on the stagecoach route from San Francisco to Santa Cruz, the place included a 10-room hotel that catered to road-weary travelers. There was a couple of saloons, a Chinese laundry. Even a cheese factory. The building still stands but is no longer a functioning hotel. However, the original stagecoach stop stands across Highway 84 from the store. More info here and here, if you're interested.
Nowadays, the general store is a rest stop on both the Advanced and Intermediate Peninsula rides. So if OYRers get there between 11 and 1, they'll be treated to some live music from the Montara Mountain Boys.
Rumor has it that despite the prominent bike rack outside, the proprietors don't actually like cyclists.
Use clip covers if you have them. Take off your shoes and leave them out front per the sign by the door.
