Ride with CalBike Toward a Better California

“THE BEST MULTI-DAY BICYCLE TOUR I’VE EVER EXPERIENCED”

For CalBike's 5th annual California Dream Ride, we'll return to Southern California. You'll pedal 290 miles, from Santa Barbara to San Diego, over five days, while enjoying the scenic canyons, skyline ridge roads and quiet beach bike paths of this route, which is a favorite of our riders.

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.
