Cycling The Vineyards Of California

The ultimate US road trip, by bike! This iconic ride takes us through the rolling hills of world renowned wine estates in Napa Valley, alongside towering Redwood trees and across the Golden Gate Bridge.

Our route follows Coastal Highway 1 as it twists its way around rocky headlands, crashing waves stirring the numerous Elephant seal colonies that scatter the beaches below. Out of the saddle we explore the many incredible state parks, isolated beaches and prestigious wineries for which the region is so highly regarded, as well as re-fuelling on fine Californian cuisine.
