Itinerary Description

Come see why magnificent Highway One through northern San Luis Obispo County and Cambria is one of the premier places for Pacific coast bike trips. Located just south of the Big Sur coast, this stretch of California coast is every bit as beautiful as Big Sur, but lacks the major climbs and hairpin turns of the Big Sur coastal highway. Imagine yourself on your bike on an undulating road with waves crashing below the bluffs to your right while the picturesque coastal range rises on your left. It rarely gets better than this. On this trip, we shuttle up to Ragged Point and cycle south on Highway One past a colony of decidedly odd looking elephant seals (a must see stop!), as well as the legendary Hearst Castle and San Simeon Cove. After a delicious gourmet picnic lunch at a seaside park, we ride our bikes through the delightful village of Cambria, home to numerous art galleries and shops. Leaving Cambria you have the option to cycle along idyllic Santa Rosa Creek Valley to finish the tour and/or continuing south before winding up in the classic beach town of Cayucos. What a perfect way to experience this spectacular stretch of California's Central Coast near Cambria and Hearst Castle!

"Everything about our trip was fantastic. John was an excellent guide - informative as much as we wanted without being intrusive.  He was a pleasure to travel with, the lunch was superb with the extra flair of having wine or champagne to celebrate my wife's birthday was a special touch.  The bikes were great. We will highly recommend you to anyone who asks.  It was the best day of our trip!"

Comparison to Other Bike Tours

The Biking: Pacific Coast Half Day tour also cycles Highway One along the spectacular coast of northern SLO County, but ends near Cambria instead of continuing inland and/or down the coast to Cayucos. You still see the elephant seals and pass by Hearst Castle on the half day tour.

If you are looking for a combination of coast and wine, our Biking: Avila Beach See Canyon Half Day tour vists the coast and cycles to a tasting room in See Canyon, but does not cycle through extensive areas with vineyards.
