Our California tour gives you a good introduction to the delightful countryside and coastline of Central California. With vinyards, cattle and fruit farms, interesting small towns, rolling hills and mountains inland, there is a lot to see. Flying into Los Angeles, the cycling starts in Santa Barbara County and then goes north to San Luis Obispo before moving to the area around Carmel and Monterey, south of San Francisco and then returning to Solvang (The area around Solvang is used by the big American teams for training) and Santa Barbara.

The price includes return flight,a support van to carry luggage and accompany riders, internal transfers by train & mini-bus and a short trip on a large sailing catamaran to hopefully see dolphins, seals and possibly, whales.

Our next tour there will probably be in 2019

Please get in touch if you are interested and want to know more.

Comments by email and letter from tour members:

Anybody who's reading this, who hasn't done the California trip, should seriously think about this trip. Cycling in California rocks - Santa Barbara, Solvang (doing the Fig!), the train trip north, Big Sur - it's absolutely unique terrain. Short loops or longer, it's all good. Totally different, different colours, to cycling in UK. And good food and lots of it!

Very enjoyable and different to anything we've done before.

Bemused by the variety of animals, birds and insects seen - Humming-birds and buffalo, pelicans and elephant seals, albatrosses and giant eagles, stick insects and big butterflies!
