This is where you can park close to the finish line, but honestly, the start and finish lines are just a block away from each other.  So you are getting close parking either way!

Parking near finish.png

There are several hotels near the start line here in Atascadero. So you can get every minute of extra sleep you need because you won’t need to travel more than 10min to the start line.  You can go to the Visit Atascadero website for lodging information.
