Now TWO ways to ride: Sport Hybrid or E-bike!
Our 15-mile guided loop takes you through the vineyards, farms, and towns of the Santa Ynez Valley. The Ballard Canyon portion offers stunning views of the larger estate wineries and offers eight challenging climbs through it. Our lightweight aluminum frame Specialized Sirrus fitness bikes are a great way to take on this course for those looking for a bit of exercise and adventure on their tour. Or select one of our Rad Power Bikes with electric pedal assist and throttle to flatten those hills out and increase your comfort through the ride. Varying levels of assist allow you to control how much (or little!) effort is required to experience all of the wine country's stunning views.
Our Rad Power
We tried a lot of e-bikes before selecting these for our tour. We found that their performance, value, and ease of use made them ideal for our tour. We love how they have opened up our ride (a REAL bike ride!) to a much wider group of activity levels.
If you enjoyed using our bikes, and would like to purchase, please click through us (shipping is free too!) Orders are fulfilled by Rad, but we are always happy to answer any questions and offer tips and advice along the way.
If you are in the Santa Barbara/Santa Ynez area, we can arrange for a free test ride for you.

What better way to break free from this "stay at home" stuff than to get out in the fresh air, on a bike, in the beauty of the wine country. Although we are doing things a bit differently now, we are confident you will have a great time in Santa Barbara wine country with us...
Our groups have always been small. We don't have mixed groups over eight. We are usually between four to eight guests. Your tour may well be private, or you can request a special private experience.
Our high-top van is very spacious, clean, and comfortable. You can also receive a discount and just meet the tour at biking departure point in Los Olivos if preferred.
We will have guests wear masks in the van. But the outdoor and naturally spaced aspect of our bike tour makes in the perfect "social distance" activity.
We expect to see a few Santa Barbara Staycation guests as well as Los Angeles Nearcation guests coming up for a quick getaway and we can't wait for you to join us!
