If anyone is looking for a fantastic bike tour through California, it is worth checking out the Sierra to the Sea Tour .

We just returned from the 2022 tour.

The friendly folks from the Almaden Cycle Touring Club do a fantastic job. The tour is well-planned, organized, and efficiently run. The routes are thoughtful - scenic and generally avoid roads with large traffic volumes. You get to see some beautiful parts of the state.

In 2019, it was listed in Outside Magazine's Best Supported Bike Rides in the Country .

While not inexpensive, it seemed like an incredible value based on everything that is included and our overall experience.

I also wanted to give a shout out to WABA's membership extra of free bike box rentals. It was our first time flying with bikes. Being able to borrow free hard cases for travel is a great perk.
