Itinerary Description

We’ve cherry picked the best of the coastal cycling on Highway One in northern SLO County for this California Pacific Coast bike tour. After meeting in Cambria (or at your nearby hotel) we shuttle past Hearst Castle to Ragged Point. Hopping on your bike, cycle Highway One down an isolated and pristine stretch of the coast past the historic Piedras Blancas lighthouse and visit the largest elephant seal colony in North America – a must see wildlife attraction! Continuing south with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean dominating the landscape, you'll have the option of eating a gourmet picnic lunch by the pier at Hearst State Beach or continuing on to picnic at a cozy seaside park near Cambria. With just a few hills, but no major climbs, this Pacific Coast Highway bicycle tour is perhaps the easiest way to take in some of the world class scenery by bike that the area has to offer. The tour is also highly flexible with options to reduce or extend miles as the morning develops, all without missing any of the main attractions.

“Virginia was wonderful... She made sure that we were comfortable with the bikes and explained the route perfectly. We loved seeing her on the side of the rode at various intervals to offer assistance and educate us about what we were seeing. Lunch was wonderful. We also very much enjoyed her calm and peaceful air. Thanks so much for the wonderful day!”

Comparison to Other Bike Tours

The Biking: Pacific Coast Half Day tour cycles Highway One and is focused primarily on the spectacular coast of northern SLO County. Our Biking: Avila See Canyon Half Day bike tour has a great combination of coast and inland riding, but avoids Highway One (which can feel busy to less experienced cyclists at some times of year) and is easier and thus great for families. If you are still looking for a relatively easy bike tour, but want more of a wine country focus, Biking: Paso Robles Wineries Half Day bike tour is our easiest wine country bike tour and is a short drive inland from Cambria. The Biking: San Luis Obispo Wineries Half Day tour has a few more hills than the Paso Robles half day bike tour, but has more wineries to choose from for tasting.

The Biking: Pacific Coast Full Day tour is also focused on the spectacular coast of SLO County and has options to explore inland valleys and/or continue down Highway One to Cayucos.


Half Day Bike Tours in the Afternoon

Our half day bike tours typically start with a ride in the morning and end with a picnic lunch mid day. If this timing does not work for you, we can also start with a picnic lunch mid day and ride in the afternoon. If you'd like your half day bike tours to be like this, be sure to ask when you make the reservation by phone or put a note in the comments field of the online reservation system. There is no difference in cost for doing a half day bike tour this way.
