USA, California Bike

Conquer California by bike on this awesome challenge, as we ride from the mountains of the eastern edge of this bronzed and beautiful Golden State, to the Pacific Coast and into the spectacular San Francisco. We kick off our epic Californian adventure in one of the world’s most celebrated national preserves – the monumental Yosemite National Park.

From here we cycle 410 km in 6 days, over challenging mountain roads, down into farmed valleys and onto the plains. We camp along lake shores, pass through classic Western towns, harking back to the Gold Rush days, and continue onto the edge of Californian wine country. Our last two days, live up to the California dream as we ride along the Pacific Coast road, before we have our breathtaking finish over the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and into one of the coolest cities on earth, for a night of partying Californian style!

Best time of year: September – October

Grade: Tough

Number of days: 9
