California Dreamin’
Big Sur Biking Trips NEW! Big Sur Coast: Monterey to Santa BarbaraSuspended above the Pacific and hugging the edge of the continent, this is one of the most spectacular routes in the state. And a ride that every cyclist should experience. From dramatic coast and majestic redwoods to historic missions and charming Carmel-by-the-Sea, a breathtaking adventure awaits.

Not to be missed: Bike famous 17 Mile Drive along “the greatest meeting of land and water in the world,” then test your legs on the cliff-clinging Cabrillo Highway past wind-torn cypresses.

Death Valley Trips Death Valley: California’s Mojave DesertThere’s no better way than biking and hiking with Backroads to experience the rich palette, surreal geography and many moods of this fascinating national park. Pedal across shimmering salt flats. Amble among rainbow-colored rock formations. Discover volcanic craters and giant sand dunes. Then capture the panorama—and maybe even a stunning desert sunset—from a red tail hawk’s perspective at dramatic Zabriskie Point.

Not to be missed: How low can you go? Descend to Badwater, the lowest point in the Western Hemisphere at 282 feet below sea level.

Yosemite trips Yosemite: Natural Wonders of the Sierra NevadaWelcome to 761,266 acres of “Wow!” Half Dome, El Capitan, Yosemite Falls, the Mariposa Grove of Big Trees—the grandeur of Yosemite is almost overwhelming. Exploring actively with Backroads, you’ll appreciate the park from all perspectives. Soak up jaw-dropping vistas from Glacier Point, while savoring mountain air perfumed with ponderosa and cedar. Stroll among the largest sequoias in the park. And get cozy at the iconic Ahwahnee Hotel, a National Historic Landmark.

Not to be missed: Marvel at Grizzly Giant—no, it’s not a bear, but an awe-inspiring sequoia, some 2,000 years old with a base diameter of 30 feet!

Backroads Wine Country Biking trips Wine Country: Through Napa & Sonoma Vineyards, Redwoods & CoastSavor every drop of your visit to Wine Country as you cycle, sip and Shiatsu your way through the renowned valleys of Sonoma, Russian River, Alexander, Dry Creek and Napa. Just as there’s a vintage to suit every palate here, there’s a diversion for every interest: country roads perfect for biking, welcoming wineries, sensational cuisine, chic galleries and luxury spas.

Not to be missed: Find heaven at the Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa, where you’re treated to the Roman Bathing Ritual—an exfoliating shower, warm bath, hot bath, herbal steam, sauna and rehydrating drinks.

Wine Country weekend biking trips Wine Country Weekend: Through Alexander & Dry Creek ValleysJoin us for the ultimate three-day wine country getaway. You’ll side-step the crowds and savor much of what makes this pocket of Northern California one of our favorite places: gorgeous vineyard vistas, quiet country roads, gourmet meals and elegant hotels.
