The best Sonoma cycling can be reached from anywhere in the Bay Area on an easy multi-day tour using Comova’s Cazita as your stayover. Experience the sense of accomplishment offered by touring as you connect one day’s ending point with the next day’s starting point.
“Sonoma Bound” is ideal for Bay Area locals looking for a bike-powered weekend getaway. It can be configured as a point-to-point tour where we transport you back to your home or other starting point, or with enough time you can make it a loop using inland backroads on the way north and then taking advantage of coastal tailwinds on the way south. Or make it a low carbon vacation by combining public transit with your routes.
On this sample route, Day 2 of a tour from San Francisco to Comova’s base in Cazadero, explore the northern reaches of Marin County and the heart of Sonoma cycling through the redwoods of Bohemian Highway.
Depending on which part of the Bay Area you want to start your tour from, the route options can include everything from bike paths and gravel roads to rural lanes and smooth pavement passing through cities and towns with plenty of food options and other amenities.
This is “credit card” style touring which means rather than carrying camping gear you’ll use local rentals, motels and other accommodations each night; always near restaurants and other amenities so you can be self-sufficient without a car. Once in West County you can stay with us in Comova’s adventure cycling retreat, Cazita.
Petaluma makes a great overnight stop on the way to Cazadero. Drop into town on rural backroads then enjoy Petaluma’s historic downtown and waterfront. Restaurant options abound: Central Market and Wild Goat Bistro are favorites.
