What type of dining will we be doing?

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

Where does the trip end?

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.

TripAdvisor Review 

Exceptional Bike Trip

We did the Undiscovered Wine Country tour. We are experienced riders and it was a challenging and satisfying tour, but it was accessible to even a beginner (albeit fit) rider. We loved our guides, the other guests, the accommodations, the food, and, most importantly, the spectacular riding. We will definitely do another tour with Undiscovered Country.
