    A fire road:

    Old Coast Road

    It begins opposite the park mentioned by PacMan

    That park is a minimalist park though.
    If you go further south a little, there is a full service campsite in the trees, fully sheltered from the wind. It is popular though, so you may not find a free spot.

    Enjoy!

    Check out Fort Ord. It's not Big Sur, but near Monterey. Hit it early in the day; there's not much shade, more grassland and brush. Problem with Big Sur for mountain biking is the coast and mountains are very rugged and steep.. A lot of the national forest away from the coast is in the Ventana Wilderness, so no biking there.

    Camping at Andrew Molera is walk in and I believe 1st come first serve; the other state park takes reservations. I think there is national forest camping down south, Kirk Creek maybe? There's some private spots as well.
