Wine Country & The Beautiful Pacific Coast - Tour Itinerary
Welcome to San Francisco, a funky, individualistic, surprisingly small place – certainly the most liberal city in the US. San Francisco has an European flair and lot’s of opportunities to do some sightseeing. This is the perfect place to begin a monumental motorcycle trip! At the tour hotel you will get a chance to meet your fellow riders and your Tour Leaders, as the ride of a lifetime is about to start!
When you wake up in this beautiful city, you will finally understand why Tony Bennett left his heart in San Francisco. The City by the Bay is famous for its iconic Golden Gate Bridge, its unique culture, and its position at the forefront of technological innovation. Enjoy this guided sightseeing tour of San Francisco to experience the city like never before. Be sure to soak up the culture, art, architecture, and views that make up this amazing city.
After our welcome breakfast we pick up our motorcycles from EagleRider. Shortly after we are on the road cruising north to California’s premier wine country in Napa. When you arrive in Napa park your bikes and enjoy the fine wine and amenities this town has to offer.
Today we head south on the legendary Pacific Coast Highway (Hwy 1) which hugs the rugged California coast of the Pacific Ocean – the beginning of one of the best motorcycle rides in the world! For the next couple of days, the coastline is simply spectacular and there are plenty of opportunities for great photo stops. Breathtaking views of the coves and inlets of the Pacific are yours en route to the seaside town of Monterey and its famous “Cannery Row.” Monterey is home to the world famous Laguna Seca Automobile and Motorcycle Racetrack and the spectacular “Aquarium of the Sea.”
We continue our ride on scenic Hwy 1, along the edge of the cliffs of the Big Sur Coast – 90 wild and undeveloped miles of rocky cliffs form a sublime landscape where redwood groves line river canyons and the Santa Lucia Mountains rise out of the blue-green Pacific. You'll cross bridges situated on gorges high above the raging Pacific surf, see artichoke fields perched precariously along rocky cliffs, stop for coffee and lunch, cruise past San Simeon, stop to see the Elephant Seal Rookery, wind through Cambria and Morro Bay and finally arrive at Pismo Beach. Truly a day's great ride!
Today we take Hwy 101 and head towards Los Angeles, the Pacific Ocean to our right, and the coastal mountains to our left. After a stop in Santa Barbara for a coffee, we cruise straight into Malibu, the infamous beach colony. Santa Monica is LA’s oldest and biggest resort – once a wild beachfront playground, it’s now a self-consciously liberal and healthy community. From here we will ride over to Hawthorne, where EagleRider’s headquarters are located. Now it’s time to return your motorcycles and transfer back to our hotel.
Today our group is going to enjoy a Los Angeles city tour. A top city in the US, Los Angeles is known worldwide as the home of the rich and famous. This is time to feel the magic of Hollywood and see memorable locations from hit movies! Tonight, we celebrate the miles we’ve ridden and the friends we made as we party together at our Farewell Dinner!
It's hard to believe that our time together is over, but know that we'll always keep a space open for you on another ride of your dreams! Please take the hotel shuttle and transfer to Los Angeles International Airport. We hope to see you soon!
