California Dream Ride

October 7th to 12th, 2018
Santa Barbara to
San Diego

290 miles by bike



You, and 50 other 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 whole idea. All are valued, fully supported, learn a lot, and have a fantastic time.


A fully-supported, 5-day, semi-luxurious, and very fun fundraising ride, with an inspiring route, great food, comfortable accommodations, and a chance to peek behind the scenes into the world of bike advocacy. Pace and difficulty: moderate. 


Santa Barbara to San Diego 


To meet a great group of people, have fun riding your bike, and support the California Bicycle Coalition's work to make California a better place to ride! With our support & fundraising tips, you'll raise $2500 to support CalBike's work.


The ride starts the evening of October 7th and ends October 12th, 2018.
