OVERVIEW:  Come and enjoy a fixed base tour of California's stunning Central Coast area.  Paso Robles offers exceptional cycling on lightly traveled roads that are bordered by Coastal live oaks, fruit, nut and olive orchards, large ranches as well as hundreds of vineyards and wineries.  Riders will be able to cycle to the beautiful Pacific Ocean as well as pedal to the San Andreas Fault.

RIDE RATING:  Moderate to Difficult    There are multiple route options for average to accomplished riders. The terrain is as varied as it is beautiful with daily averages of 35-50 miles and 2,500 to 3,500 feet of elevation gain.  There are no mandatory ride days and this ride IS NOT SAG VEHICLE SUPPORTED.  Tandem riders may find some of the routes quite challenging, but are welcome along with any riders wanting to use their E-bikes.

People Cycling's Ride Rating

People Cycling has four categories for our rides – Easy, Moderate, Difficult, and Challenging. It should be somewhat obvious what these categories mean, but please become familiar with the elevations and distances that define them:

Easy rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
Anything over the Difficult rating

NOTE: This is not a strict guideline. There could be rides that have a day or two where the average elevation or distance exceeds the values given above. These anomalies should be outlined in the ride description. It is recommended that you read it carefully.

About People Cycling

People Cycling is a recently launched cycling club, which you can join for free, and is led by volunteer ride leaders. We will be offering tours in the United States and overseas. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 20-30 or so) who want to ride 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world.

Our ride leaders are volunteers and do not financially profit on tours they lead. They are also given broad discretion on how to lead their tours, and we consider them our greatest asset.

People Cycling tours are operated at cost or at lower cost (as negotiated by our ride leaders) than individuals can obtain on commercial tours. Within the cost of a tour, there is a nominal fee to support club operations and provide tools to ride leaders to manage their rides.

A lifetime membership in People Cycling is absolutely FREE, so please join us and become one of us – we the people, cycling together.
