Full description
After pickup from your hotel or the prearranged meeting point at 10:00 AM, set out in the morning in an air-conditioned van to La Cumbre Peak at 3,995 feet of elevation. Once there, you're fitted with a comfortable bicycle, helmet, and gloves. Your friendly and knowledgeable guide will give you a biking talk and riding demonstration, and go over the expectations of the day before the biking begins. Guests ride downhill on Gibraltar Road, a paved mountain road that winds its way into the heart of downtown Santa Barbara, while a support van follows. Your guides will be biking with you along the way, stopping at points of interest for photo opportunities and to talk about natural history. Stop to enjoy some of the area’s most loved locations including the Santa Barbara Mission, Courthouse, State Street & Stearns Wharf. A delicious deli-spread picnic is served at a local park with fresh veggies and fruit, a variety of wraps and sandwiches, chips, cookies, and beverages. You will end the tour at a local Santa Barbara beach around 3:00 PM.
