Fulfill your craving for Northern California’s scenic and savory best on this incredible tour through some of the coast’s most breathtaking and productive agricultural areas.
Starting on the outskirts of San Francisco at the Marin Headlands Hostel, we’ll pedal past dairy farms, vineyards, and orchards at the peak of harvest season. We’ll also tackle some of the best cycling terrain the region has to offer and you’ll quickly understand why many professional racing cyclists call this area home. We’ve kept the daily riding distances short enough to provide time for enjoying the various wineries, farmers’ markets, and other harvest highlights of the region. We’ve also added some long alternate routes for those looking to increase their daily mileages.
Our group will explore the Sonoma and Napa valleys, the Alexander and Russian River valleys, Point Reyes, Tomales and Bodega bays, and the coastal bluffs of Marin County. You’ll inhale warm autumn air, savor locally sourced produce, sip some of the world’s finest wines, and pedal from the edge of the tawny Coast Range to the blue Pacific, and back again. Join us for this magical sensory tour blending sustainable agriculture with world-class bike touring!
