Upcoming Trips

We’re constantly researching routes and trip ideas for your custom-crafted adventures. But sometimes we hit on something so perfect we add it to our calendar and put out the call for adventure seekers.

These won’t look or feel like the typical bike touring company’s offerings. We’re experts at crafting adventures that focus on the joy of the ride. You can still expect great support and comfortable accommodations–whether tents, inns, cabins or boutique hotels–but the heart of the experience is the remoteness of our routes, encounters with nature, and the sense of accomplishment from taking on the challenge.

The Hidden Eel Lost Coast Tour

  • Dates: October 14-18, 2022
  • Place: Mendocino and Humboldt
  • Price: $1,150-$1,250 per person

The Eel is a remote and wild river that is mostly inaccessible. Beginning in Laytonville, we’ll climb and descend to cross the Eel’s main fork at its confluence with the middle fork. The first night’s camp is at the confluence of the Middle Fork Eel and Black Butte River. Day 2 will see more up and down into and out of the North Fork and main fork canyons of the Eel River before finally dropping down to the Avenue of the Giants. Day 3 passes through Humboldt Redwoods State Park before crossing the coast range and dropping into the Lost Coast. Kings Peak Rd and the King Range Conservation Area are next before a final night at the Usal Beach campground.

This route is challenging for its remoteness and the steepness of its climbs. And with little to no SAG support during our rides, we’ll be entirely self-sufficient except for each night where we’ll have the modest luxury of drop bags and meals at our campsite. But if you’re up to it, the rewards are huge.

The Comova Experience

  • Dates: August 6-9, 2022
  • Place: Cazadero, CA
  • Price: $950-$1,200 per person

All of the best riding that Sonoma’s West County has to offer is packed into this weekend getaway: Coleman Valley; Fort Ross; and the grandaddy of them all, King Ridge. You may have ridden these routes but we’ll guide you down little known side roads and to hidden viewpoints all while supporting you over challenging “mixed terrain” routes.

Between Comova’s Cazita and Redwood nest, plus tent and private room options, riders will have a range of accommodation and pricing choices. We’ll start and end each ride right from the bike barn where you and your bike will be treated like pros. And you’ll be fueled by our home-cooked dinners and breakfasts.

The Forgotten Pacific Coast Tour

  • Dates: August 13-17, 2022
  • Place: Sonoma and Mendocino
  • Price: $1,150-$1,250 per person

Most cyclists are familiar with the Pacific Coast route. But few have ridden, or even know about, the network of backroads that penetrate into the coast range where redwood forests, occasional gravel roads, and lots of steep climbing make up the ingredients of a classic cycling adventure. The Forgotten Pacific Coast Route hits all of these.

We’ll spend the first night at Comova’s base in Cazadero for a shakeout ride. King Ridge will deliver us to the coast for the first night before we head inland again on Fish Ranch Rd. After a night in the redwoods, we’ll enter Van Damme State Park from the back side then hit the remote forest roads of Jackson State Demonstration Forest. Our final day has us blasting down the coast with the aid of a tailwind.
