Day 1-2: From our lodgings in Healdsburg, shoot west from lowlands alongside the Russian River into northern Sonoma County. Ride along Lake Sonoma and choose to test your lungs on the optional out-and-back ride up Rock Creek Road with stunning view finding of the big, green-gold landscape. Our fourth day, Leaving Healdsburg, cycle on the famous West Side Road to Geyserville. En route we’ll dismount to stroll the most inviting vineyards, as well as cross a historic bridge. Dismounting in Geyserville, we tread into the nearby 805-acre Armstrong Redwoods Reserve. Hiking amongst/marveling at the giants who reign over this temperate rainforest, we meet the tallest, 310-ft tall Parson Jones. Then pay respects to the elder statesman, 1400-year old Colonel Armstrong.
Day 3: From Geyserville drop toward the enormous, raucous Pacific. A brisk, exhilarating wind, the ocean’s churning, plus a chorus of barking seals lend the ride a high-spirited ambient. From upland marine prairie layered above coastal bluffs and terraces, we revel in near coast seastacks. Wrapping up in frothy, romantic Bodega Bay, we enjoy the best farm-to-table cuisine and locally caught, or harvested seafood/shellfish. Wake up to crashing ocean waves before ascending Bay Hill. Set along the rugged, rolling Sonoma Coast, and rich Grey whale habitat we roll into Bodega: location for Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds”. After visiting the legendary “Birds” house, we gently finish our tour in Freestone: a 19th century stone quarry and logging town. Here, in the town’s handsome historic district, we enjoy some of the best home baked bread anywhere. Shuttle back to Santa Rosa.
Just north of San Francisco, the winding Russian River meets the dramatic Pacific coastline, shaping if not sheltering 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.
From Napa to Sonoma, the old wine country ways and grace are still very much the lay of the land. The richness of the region is omnipresent as we roll with great gusto 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; unwinding off the bike at old world-style hotels and spas.
You can customize your cycling experience on tour: in the moment. Nonetheless, whether you choose to move at a relaxing pace to rejuvenate deeper senses and psyche, or a more athletic tempo, topping off with additional miles to challenge your muscles, this tour will satisfy your inner hunger. At the same time scrumptious lodging and farm-to-table meals will undoubtedly exceed your expectations.
While every Escape Adventure trip is designed to appeal to active adventure seekers, and in many cases, particular skill levels, there is always a different idea of what that exactly means. That is why we have designed the chart below to help make sure you join the proper tour. We know your pace may vary from one day to the next—and your traveling companions’ may differ as well. We present a range of mileage options on each tour as well as provide support vehicles as much as possible. That way you can take a break and do as little or as much as you would like each day.
