Ride with CalBike Toward a Better California

-Laura Barnes, 2014, 2015, and 2016 Rider [more testimonials...]

Enjoy gorgeous ocean sunsets with new friends who love cycling as much as you do. Ride along quiet ocean paths. Eat fantastic meals with great company. Relax in comfortable hotels at the end of a day of riding.

Participants are a diverse group of riders—men and women of a wide range of ages and cycling abilities. Some of us spend every weekend riding many miles; for others, this is our first multi-day tour. Some of us care passionately about bike advocacy; others are new to the idea of bike advocacy. All are valued, fully supported, learn a lot, and have a fantastic time.

Proceeds benefit the California Bicycle Coalition, enabling more people to bicycle, for the health, safety, and prosperity of all. This is the only ride in California that specifically raises money to support the dream of a more bikeable California.
