Conquer California by bike on this ‘Golden’ ride! We cycle for 404km over 5 days from the mountains of the Golden State, to the Pacific Coast and into the spectacular San Francisco. We kick off this epic adventure in the monumental Yosemite National Park, with massive granite peaks, towering forests, roaring waterfalls and sparkling lakes. Cycling over challenging mountain roads to the coast, we cut a serpentine course along the Pacific Coast Road, high above the crashing surf, with time to stop and visit golden sandy beaches and laid-back towns. With a breathtaking finish over the Golden Gate Bridge and into one of the coolest cities on earth, get ready for a night of partying San Francisco style!
