This full-day bike tour of the wine country follows the Amgen Tour of California route (Stage 6) along 15 miles of moderate-difficulty paved roadway.
Gear up and set out with your guide, as the ride takes you through tranquil Ballard Canyon -- Santa Barbara County's newest viticulture area with expansive vineyards, equestrian ranches, grazing buffalo and Texas longhorns.
You'll stop in Solvang -- the Danish capital of California -- and visit the picturesque town of Los Olivos for wine and olive oil tasting. The route includes a stop at a quaint local lavender farm.
Mid-way through the ride, you'll enjoy a rustic Italian-inspired lunch of artisan sandwiches, salad, Farmers' market fruits and nuts, Italian sodas and amaretti cookies.
With round-trip van transport, this tour has it all.
