Our group of 6, 3 couples enjoyed a private UDC tour. On our last evening over dinner we reflected on our 9 days riding and all agreed it was an outstanding experience; the weather was spot on, tour was well organized with great support from Daryl and Laura, people we met were friendly, hire bikes performed well, the coast was spectacular and we all enjoyed the great riding.

Our operation was founded with a radical notion that bike tours should emphasize great bicycling before everything else. Thousands of cyclists agreed, and our dedication to a great cycling experience has made us the leading road bike tour company in California. Our tours are very different than the standard fare offered by countless other companies, however. Here are the main features that set our tours apart:
Our first priority is always producing the best imaginable bicycle vacation for those who love road cycling. Anything that makes cycling more enjoyable, we do it. For example, a great cycling experience starts with a great bike. That's why our race-ready, feather-light carbon road bikes are the highest performance bicycles offered by any tour company.
California is our home, and we specialize on providing the absolute best cycling this state has to offer.
We prefer the backroads to the main highway, the quaint village to the busy tourist town, the small historic inn to the world famous resort. We don't see many other tour companies on our travels, and we like it that way.
Crowds are not our style, so we limit our group sizes to no more than 14 people—and frequently no more than 10! This lets us fit comfortably in the smaller inns, lodges, and restaurants off the beaten path.
We believe bike tours should be about traveling by bicycle, not shuttling in a van, so we design all of our tour routes to maximize amazing bicycle travel and minimize vehicle transfers (of course, a support vehicle is on the route should you need it).
