Tour Overview

The Best Value in California Bike Tours

Our extraordinary California bicycle tours combine the best of a wine country vacation with the magnificent Sonoma Coast, and feature exceptionally scenic cycling routes. Premiere lodging, food and wine provide a fabulous and all-encompassing experience. From wine country's top rated inn to an upscale coastal lodge, you will be immersed in luxury throughout your vacation.

Cycle through sprawling vineyards lining 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 and ancient redwood trees while cycling below their cathedral-like canopy.

Enjoy a breathtaking bike ride down the coast with remarkable ocean views as your constant companion while riding south with the wind at your back and the downhills in your favor. Join your tour guides on a spectacular hike overlooking the sea. Seals, sea lions, and even migrating gray whales are often visible in the waters below.

Your stay on the coast affords the opportunity to challenge yourself on a famed local ride that is featured in the Tour of California. Or, take the afternoon off from your bike for a massage, a walk along the beach, a round of golf, or to try your hand at surfing the gentle swells. Sojourn's California bicycle tours offer a wide variety of options to suit most anyone.
