You will not believe how close you are to the frenzy of the San Francisco Bay Area as you ride through the scenic mountain roads over to the quiet little coastal town of Half Moon Bay.
Over the coastal range on roads that time has forgot, through wonderful micro climates, redwood tress, and the Pacific Ocean, you will agree that this gem of a tour is the perfect respite from the busy world of Silicon Valley.
We begin our 3-day bike tour at the Undiscovered Country Cycling Center here in Los Altos where we then head up and over the coastal range with a stop at the Famous Bike Hut before we end along the shores of Half Moon Bay. The next day we ride through areas that are so beautiful that the Amgen Tour of California insisted on including them in their stage race. On the final day, we continue through this magical area of marvelous micro-climates and back into present day Los Altos.
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.
