    Pastoral Sonoma

    Your guides will meet you in San Francisco, and we’ll transfer you north across the Golden Gate Bridge to Marin County.

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 our favorite bakery, 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 Michelin-starred Terrapin Creek.
