Ride along country roads through lush vineyards and follow the Russian River as it winds through stands of ancient redwoods to the sea. Spin down the magnificent undeveloped coast. Welcome to our Northern California Wine Country bicycle tour.
Take in the sun shining upon ripened grapes of the vineyards. Cycle through the sprawling vineyards that line the region’s most famous wine valleys. The magnificent Russian River, Dry Creek, and Alexander Valleys are each distinguished by their unique terrain. Marvel at the majesty of towering, ancient Redwood trees. Cycle below their cathedral-like canopy.
Enjoy a breathtaking bike ride down the coast. Admire remarkable ocean views as your constant companion, cycling south with the wind at your back and the downhills in your favor. Trade your bike shoes for walking shoes and follow the trail that follows the clifftop along the rugged and beautiful coastline. Witness seals, sea lions, and even migrating gray whales in the waters below.
Start your California Wine Country cycling trip in Santa Rosa then transfer to the start of your ride in the Dry Creek Valley, home to the world’s best Zinfandel. Country roads are sprinkled with smaller, privately owned wineries you might stop to visit. A wine-paired dinner awaits in the Michelin starred restaurant of the Madrona Manor.
Ride through Chalk Hill to the Alexander Valley. Expansive vineyards line the hillsides as you make your way to a picnic lunch at one of the region’s most beautiful wineries.
Follow the lush Russian River Valley to the Pacific Ocean. Picnic under a grove of ancient redwood trees, some over 300 feet tall and 1400 years old.
Begin your day with an unforgettable walk along a grassy headland surrounded by pounding surf. Look for deer roaming the fields and sea lions or gray whales in the waters below before a breathtaking spin down the stunning Pacific coastline.
Country roads will convince you that this peaceful corner of the county is one of California’s best kept secrets for bicycling.
