Itinerary

Think of this biking tour as a rolling theater of wine country life that changes with the seasons, rather than a set point-to-point trip. It’s a hands-on opportunity to discover all the hidden adventures, wine tastings at family owned wineries, gourmet treats (think regionally inspired, locally grown cuisine at Michelin restaurants) & unique events that Sonoma County has to offer. All that…with none of the hassles.

Day 1:


What better way to begin your trip than by biking through a few of the most celebrated vineyards in Northern California? You will stop for a few wine tastings so you can judge for yourself which you like the best.

Day 2:


This day you experience, first hand, the world-acclaimed wine growing appellations that are part of the Dry Creek Valley and Alexander Valley. You’ll get a taste (or two) of why these areas are famous for such amazing, award-winning wines. Of course, there’s also time to visit some hidden treasures along the way.
*Choose the Epic “Tour de Sonoma” Ride! You ride up to the Geysers (58 miles, 4500′ elevation gain).

Day 3:

You follow the Russian River to a magnificent forest of 1,400-year-old coastal redwoods. After lunch, you will head to the coast, home of fiercely independent and hardworking fishermen … and totally relaxed sea lions, both of whom are expert at catching the region’s succulent salmon, oysters, abalone and Dungeness crab.
*Choose the Epic “Tour de Sonoma” Ride! Ride 90 miles of Levi Leipheimer’s Training Ride. Now that is Epic!

Day 4:


Biking through the historic and charming town of Bodega — also home of Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds” — you continue onward to visit destinations that are beloved by those in the know. The rewards may be fresh hot cinnamon bread straight from wood fired brick ovens, a cheese artisan and his goats, a fantasy street peopled by the creations of one gifted artist or have a chance to discover the Barlow, home to food producers, wine makers, brewers, distillers, and artists.
*Choose the Epic “Tour de Sonoma” Ride! You ride Trinity Rd to Napa – a leg of the 2010 Amgen Tour of California

Day 6:


Before saying good-bye, you’ll have time to create your own morning itinerary. You can go for one last amazing bike ride, pop into the one-of-a-kind boutique shops found inside the old adobe storefronts on the plaza, tour General Vallejo’s historic home; or just sit with your coffee in any of Sonoma’s beautiful sunlit courtyards. Everything will be taken care of for your departure. All you’ll need do is pack.
