Tour Start and Finish in Santa Rosa:

Your tour begins with a bike fitting and pre-tour orientation by one of our professional guides at your lodging in Santa Rosa. We'll take the time to review the route with you, give personal tips and advice and answer any questions you may have. After that you'll be traveling on your own, but we'll always be just a phone call away. Your rooms will be reserved and your luggage transferred and your mind at rest.


 

Day One:Grnvalley

Santa Rosa to Healdsburg (20-30 miles). 
You’ll cruise out of town on the bike trail, head past the old apple orchards of “West County” and through the Russian River Valley. Visit artisanal wineries, absorb amazing vistas, picnic in the sunshine and finish your day with an amazing meal and stroll around the historic Healdsburg Plaza.


Day Two:Vineyard Riders

Healdsburg Loop (no minimum ride distance). Explore the Dry Creek Valley with its 100 year old Zinfandel vines, family run wineries and quiet curving roads; it's a pastoral paradise. You can choose to take a casual ride to picnic at a winery or make the day an adventure- but you’re sure to discover why people call Healdsburg cycling heaven.
