Stunning accommodation and beautiful rides.
Relaxing cycling holiday following a fast-growing UCI World Tour event.
In its 12th year, the 2017 tour was elevated to a World Tour event so the best World Tour teams are obliged to compete. In 2010, organisers for the California tour moved their event from February to May, conflicting with the Giro d’Italia.
The May schedule attracts the biggest riders to aide their Tour de France preparations and for organisers to include bigger climbs without inclement weather. Both the Tour of California and the Giro have prospered for this rescheduling.
Our Bikestyle trip, hosting up to 20 guests each year takes in the best of California. Stay at stunning hotels and visit amazing areas such as the Redwood Forest, Wine Country and the Pacific Coast. Favourite rides include coasting the Big Sur, climbing Diablo or traversing the Golden Gate Bridge.
The official route is normally released by November each year. In 2019 we’ll once again offer our fully supported trip catering for cyclists and non-cyclists following the most important stages.
Pre-book now is the only way to guarantee to secure your spot in 2019.
I'M A NON RIDER, ARE THERE SPECTATOR TRIPS?
We have trips with both riding and non-riding itineraries. The primary focus is seeing the race. On many days, we’ll visit the picturesque areas of California.
They are great for a non-riding partner.

I'M A CYCLIST, SO HOW FIT DO I NEED TO BE?

Our easiest rides involve riding in a group at average speeds of more than 20km/hr (15miles/hr) on the flat.
