High Sierras & Sequoias Bike Tour

Our Reno/Redwoods Road tour draws figurative inspiration from the poet laureate of the High Sierra, John Muir. Inhaling endless High-Country horizon from a fast and nimble road bike or one of our ebikes, we steadily climb some of the loftiest, if lightly traveled passes in the Sierra Nevada; riding in the long-ago slipstream of Jedediah Smith, the aforementioned Muir, John Fremont, Mark Twain, not to overlook the countless 19th century immigrants. From an immersion in the rich Western lore of California’s gold country and the Comstock Lode, we literally hug some of the oldest and grandest trees on Earth, the giant Sequoia: the biggest and best of the last.

Rocky Mountain Road bike tour

Teddy Roosevelt’s vision, circa 1905, was to preserve “America’s Alps”, the San Juan Mountain Range within a 1.8-million acre (3000-square mile) National Forest. Our guides live for this: sharing some of the area’s unbelievably scenic routes, the unique terrain features. Big open runs through high meadows that roll like waves, exploding in shoulder-high wildflowers. For point and shoot types, the low-key signage at the trail head, “Watch for Traffic” means sharing space with mule deer, coyotes, fox, Wild Turkey, bobcat, not to mention some 200 type of songbirds and raptors.

There is surely gold to be found in the inter tidal zones off Florida’s Treasure Coast.
