Just north of San Francisco, the winding Russian River meets the dramatic Pacific coastline, harboring a world all its own. Our cycling tour experiences this romantic landscape; quilted with a colorful patchwork of old growth redwoods, fruitful vineyards, historic towns, and beautiful gardens. Here, the old wine country ways are very much still alive.
The richness of the region is all around us as we roll over orchard-covered hills and wind through giant redwood forests. A mild maritime breeze carries with it the fruitful aroma of the vineyards where the freshest organic produce is grown for our dinner table. We sample the distinctive flavors of the county's diverse regions at charming multi-generational family vineyards and farms, and unwind at old world-style hotel & spas.
You can customize your cycling experience on tour, but whether you choose to move at a relaxing pace to rejuvenate your senses, or athletic pace and additional miles to challenge your muscles, this tour will satisfy your inner hunger, while fantastic lodging and meals exceed your expectations.
