Ride with CalBike Toward a Better California

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

Experience the unique beauty and varied terrain of Northern California. Ride the American River Parkway to the vineyards of Napa, through towering redwood forests and over the Golden Gate Bridge. Pedal, enjoy and relax over amazing farm-to-fork meals. Stay in great hotels and make new friends!

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.
