Surfing is a trip highlight!

Fast, Fun Facts about PC:

  • Surf’s up – hang ten!: Have you really visited California if you don’t go surfing? Midway through the trip, you’ll spend a morning with professional instructors learning how to catch a wave!
  • No shortage of coastal views: You’ll spend large sections of the trip cycling right along the coast, offering plenty of jaw-dropping views without having to leave the saddle of your bicycle!
  • No bike, no problem!: Whether you don’t have a bicycle suitable for touring or you simply don’t want to deal with the logistics of shipping a bike out west, we work with a bike shop in Eugene, Oregon to offer high-quality rental bikes for use on the trip.
  • Small towns and the big city: You’ll pass through and explore numerous charming, small towns as you make your way south along the coast before finishing your adventure and celebrating in the cultural hub of San Francisco!
