Oregon, in the Pacific Northwest, has long been known as a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds. Boasting hundreds of miles of scenic bikeways, dedicated cycle paths, single-track mountain trails, and roads threading through challenging alpine terrain, Oregon offers something for every type of cyclist – from road warriors to mountain bikers or recreational riders.
Napa Valley and Sonoma County in California are synonymous with great wine and fine dining. Discover them by bicycle back roads and country lanes, towering redwood groves, a surprising Russian history, delightful vineyards and wine chateaus of every conceivable design and a spectacular wildlife coastline. Like the bouquet of a spicy Zinfandel, the wine country of California, north of San Francisco, opens up to reveal many delights and pleasures.
The San Juan Islands archipelago lies between the northwest corner of the State of Washington and Canada’s Vancouver Island in the waters of the Salish Sea, connected to the Pacific Ocean by the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Strait of Georgia. The islands offer a relaxed way of life and abundant wildlife including bald eagles, a plethora of shorebirds and waterfowl, black-tailed deer, river otters and marine mammals: orcas, harbor seals, minke whales, porpoises, and sea lions.
On the San Juan Islands there is a route for every rider, from gentle journeys on Lopez Island to more challenging conditions on Orcas Island. This area is known for its wet weather, however, the San Juan Islands receive less rain than Seattle as they lie in the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains.
Hawaii’s Big Island is known for volcanoes, white-sand beaches lined with palm trees, surf breaks and the world-famous Ironman triathlon. You don’t have to be a triathlete to cycle here though – this self-guided cycling tour offers a choice of routes, from easy to epic, carefully selected to offer the best blend of weather, scenery and local culture. Discover hidden gems such as the vibrant artist community in Hawi, the quiet back roads and cattle ranches in the highlands around Waimea and the temple of King Kamehameha.
