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.
This was our first trip to California as well as our first bike tour and we can't wait to do both again! The bike tour was a 6 day tour through Sonoma County and our guides, Scott and Rick, were wonderful. They had everything very well organized so each day all we needed to do was enjoy the riding experience. The accomodations and dinners were exceptional as well as the bikes themselves. We also appreciated the size of the group since it allowed us to get to know a great group of other cycling enthusiasts. Can't think of a better way to enjoy the wine country! Highly recommended!
