Big Sur Road Bike Tour
Ride the Californian Coast from Santa Barbara to Big Sur over 6 days on a glorious road biking adventure. A highly influential, early 20th-century watercolorist and muralist, Francis McComas, defined California’s Central Coast, Big Sur, as “the greatest meeting of land-sea.” With that visionary exactness as a guide, the tour operator has shaped a virtuoso velo interpretation of the Golden State’s Central Coast: animated as much by sea cliffs and rolling wine country, iconic Highway One to Redwoods, breaching grey whales to far more furtive sea otters.

From the burly rawness of Big Sur to the Mediterranean-like aesthetic seen in Santa Barbara’s coastline—a.k.a the American Riviera—your big brushstrokes in the saddle sweep past farmland and great spans of ocean. At the same time, a dreamy, viscous, essentially California-quality light outlines each successive landscape.
Each day’s epic resolves into equally sublime soft-notes and local-regional qualities. From clam chowder in Pismo Beach to Pinot Noir in Monterey, groves of wind-sculpted Cypress on 17-Mile Drive, historic lighthouses to Hearst Castle.
Closing out on a different type of replenishment, at every setting you will contemplate and savour superb regional cuisine shaped by a fulsome farm-to-table ethos.
