Ride The California Coast
You’ve undoubtedly seen pictures of the California coastline (or even driven on it) but nothing compares to cruising by those rugged cliffs and turquoise waters while on two wheels. Thousands of cyclists make the trek down Highway 1 every year, so it’s easy to find an organized trip that suits you based on how much distance you want to cover per day or how hands-off you want to be in regard to logistics.
A middle ground between complete DIY and a full-on guided tour is to hire SAG Monkey, a “personal bike concierge” business that handles everything from transporting your gear to the next hotel to providing delicious ride nutrition (gluten-free chocolate chip cookie bars or sweet potato rice cakes!). Chef Nick Nicastro provides impressive all-you-can-eat dinners made from his elaborate 22-foot kitchen trailer parked right outside the hotel for each night.
