When researching a trip, we seek out dining options with healthy, fresh choices typical of the California.
Nobody goes hungry on our trips! One of the joys of riding several hours per day is getting to enjoy the dinner afterwards. We give you the choice of ordering anything on a restaurant's menu. Order appetizers, soup, salad, entree, dessert, and beverages. The only thing that isn't included is alcohol. The only exception to the full menu is when a restaurant has prepared a special dinner for us
Breakfasts are either continental style or made to order.
We meet at 8:00 AM on the first day of the trip in San Jose, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel San Jose
The trip officially ends in the late afternoon on the final day of the tour, in San Jose. You'll have a chance to go for a final spin that morning, shower and pack up your things, and grab a bite to eat before your guides transfer you back to the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel San Jose.
If you still have questions, please take a look at our general Frequently Asked Questions page. It addresses questions that are common to all tours.
My hubby and I have just returned from our second UDC tour. We took the inaugural Ride Across California. Wow, wow and double wow is all I can say. Yes there were some mountains... but the scenery, the guides, the accommodation, the food, the fellow tourers - it was all amazing. We love the daily distances, the length of tour, the bikes. I'm already planning how we can tour again with UDC.
