Cycling in Sonoma County
Guided half or full day ride among the vineyard’s of Dry Creek, one of California’s premiere wine appellations, on this half day tour. Enjoy the peaceful, rural roads and gentle hills that make this an ideal ride for cyclists of all abilities. Stop for wine tasting at local, family run vineyards, and organic farms, if desired.
Trip can be customized to match your interest and ability. Also can provide half day cycling along Sonoma’s scenic coast. Fantastic views of the Pacific Ocean from bluffs with crashing surf below, and past inviting beaches for an optional picnic lunch. A few routes I suggest:
1. Spin and Wine Taste (easy to moderate) Explore the best of Dry Creek and Alexander Valley on this scenic ride through vineyards and taste award winning wines. Distance: 10-35 miles
2. Pacific Coast Ride (moderate)
Follow the Russian River among giant redwood trees to the Pacific Ocean junction and ride Pacific Coast highway alongside crashing surf and inviting beaches where sightings of migrating whales occur seasonally. Enjoy the best of California’s north coast on this 30-50 mile ride. Pass through the bohemian California towns while enjoying the best of the area’s natural beauty.
3. Coast and Vine Challenge (strenuous)
Get the best of the coast and wine region on this 60-70 mile challenge ride. Include some of the roads local professional cyclists have trained. Experience the rugged coast, climbs, backroads, and finish the day in wine country where you can celebrate your accomplishment tasting some of the world’s finest wine.
Bike rental can be arranged with advance notice. Tailor made tour to your request.
