The Classic bike tour features a loop of 15 miles with some climbs throughout. The course is challenging, but not exhausting. Beautiful and rewarding, with just the right amount of effort for those seeking it.
Our e-bike upgrade makes the tour accessible for a very wide variety of activity levels. (Even if you are a strong rider, you just might find them irresistibly fun!)
While it is important that you feel confident and safe on a bicycle, it is not necessary to own a multi-colored spandex uniform with sponsors (honestly!) to do our ride. If you don't know how to work the gears, we'll show you.
Our default pick up location is in uptown Santa Barbara at the Peppertree Inn (3850 State Street). It is equidistant from the downtown Santa Barbara and Goleta hotels. It has free available parking and is just off the road that will take us up to wine country.

If you are staying in the wine country, you can meet us at Brander Vineyards at 9:45 a.m. as the shuttle arrives.
