It’s thrilling to pilot your bike through the California Redwoods, the tallest living things on the planet, some of which were alive before Christopher Columbus. After winding through the forest, break times will be spent playing on a wild beach, kayaking on a quiet lagoon teeming with wildlife, or wandering through the magnificent fern canyon that was used as a backdrop in Jurassic Park. At night, you’ll eat s’mores and swap stories around the campfire at the Albee Creek Campground (one of the Golden State’s best-kept secrets) and Patrick’s Point State Park, situated right by a bluff with epic views of the Pacific.
