Whether you’re astride a beach cruiser, skinny-tire road cycle or a rugged mountain bike, riding your bike year-round is totally fun here! Bring your own wheels or rent a set from local shops; or how about a 4-wheel surrey cycle for the whole family? Savor year-round warm sun, quiet country roads, spectacular scenery and challenging climbs. Many pro bicycling teams train on our local roads and mountain passes. Plus, plenty of amateur bike riding camps and bike vacation tours headquarter here, too.
Some of the largest amateur rides (think 3,000 cyclists) in the nation visit us every year including the Solvang Century, Metric and Half-Century (100/63/50 miles) happening this Saturday, 3/14/15), a benefit for SCOR CARDIAC CYCLISTS CLUB. Did you know that Solvang proudly hosted the Individual Time Trial Stage of the professional cyclists’ Amgen Tour of California in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011?
