  • Day 1

    Exploring West County

    Your guides will meet you in San Francisco, and we’ll transfer you north across the Golden Gate Bridge to Marin County. Begin with the essentials: a bike fitting, safety talk, and map review before tasting cheeses at Marin French Cheese company. Our ride will take us past Sonoma’s rural ranches and pastoral farms. The biggest climb of the week comes early, but is rewarded with beautiful views of Tomales Bay. After lunch at a local cyclists’ hangout, we’ll continue to the sleepy town of Freestone, then choose a van transfer or continue a few more miles on the bike to the Bodega Bay Lodge. Tonight, we kick off the tour with an exquisite meal at Terrapin Creek.

    The California Coast

    Today’s ride highlights the variety of Northern California: start by pedaling past the rugged headlands of the Pacific coast and pause for a photo against a backdrop of rocky cliffs and dramatic, cresting waves. After a coffee stop, we veer east along the Russian River. En route to Healdsburg, pause for a picnic lunch in the shade of towering redwoods at a local reserve. After, hop in the van and head directly to Healdsburg or challenge yourself with some extra miles amidst the vines. Our favorite Healdsburg restaurant hosts us for dinner this evening.

    Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys

As we cross into Alexander Valley, quiet backroads reveal dreamy views of the Mayacamas Mountains, and we’ll stop for a coffee amidst acres of vines. After lunch, visit our favorite local winery to sip on crisp Chardonnays and juicy Zinfandels, then return to the hotel for an afternoon by the pool. Tonight is your free night—take advantage of the 30+ tasting rooms lining Healdsburg’s historic square, and turn to your guides for a dinner recommendation to suit your tastes.

    Chalk Hill Road and the Gateway to Napa

    Bid Healdsburg farewell this morning as we pass once more through the Russian River Valley. This time, we’ll continue east on Chalk Hill Road, an eight-mile stretch lined with pastures, stables, and celebrated vineyards. Turn towards Napa Valley where the road opens up with views of Mount St. Helena, and finish the ride with an epic lunch. This afternoon, settle into your next hotel—a stunning spa property in Calistoga—with a well-deserved massage, or explore the perfectly manicured town. Enjoy a local dinner with your guides in nearby Saint Helena.

  • Day 5

    Undiscovered Napa

    The focus of our day is discovering a side of Napa that remains relatively untapped. Begin with a challenging six-mile climb up Howell Mountain, or catch a lift in the van and begin riding from the top. The rest of the way to lunch consists of miles of unexplored roads as we meander past Lake Hennessey and down towards St. Helena. Grab lunch from a funky food truck at a local winery owned by a family of cyclists—when enjoyed with the estate’s own wines, it’s a fun and relaxed take on wine pairings. After lunch, choose to keep riding, transfer back to the hotel, or explore the shops and tasting rooms of St. Helena. This evening, enjoy a memorable farewell dinner at one of our favorite local restaurants.
