Cycling California & the Pacific Coast 5 6 7 1 2 3 4 The ultimate US road trip, by bike! This iconic ride takes us through the rolling hills of world-renowned wine estates in Napa Valley, alongside towering Redwood trees and across the Golden Gate Bridge. Our route follows Coastal Highway 1 as it twists its way around rocky headlands, with crashing waves stirring the numerous Elephant seal colonies that scatter the beaches below. Out of the saddle we explore the many incredible state parks, isolated beaches and prestigious wineries for which the region is so highly regarded, as well as re-fuelling on superb Californian cuisine.
