Welcome to the ultimate week-long cycling celebration!

At the Solvang Spring Tour you’ll experience the best routes in Southern California’s most popular cycling region. California cycling just doesn’t get any better than this! We’ve created routes that will be new adventures for even the most seasoned Santa Ynez Valley cycling veterans, visiting hidden spots in all kinds of neat locations. Riders can choose between one or two routes most days – long (60-110 miles) or medium (40-60). All totally fun and non-competitive! We definitely take our time and smell the… poppies!

Routes are challenging, but (other than Figueroa Mountain) not overly difficult. On average, the long routes have between 3,000 and 5,000 feet of vertical gain, and the medium routes between 1,500 and 3,500. Most of the climbing is gradual and not too steep. Many riders will find that a low gear of 39 x 25 is sufficient on most routes; but a 39 x 27 or 29, or better yet, a triple crank, will be much appreciated on a few of the climbs for the long rides. Please note: What you’d use for a single day event is probably not enough for a week long tour. You will fatigue from the accumulated miles. Also, please bring a good, sturdy set of wheels, as some of the roads are less than perfect (translation: very rough and bumpy), and we do cross many cattle guards during the week. Light-weight, fancy wheels are really not appropriate for this type of Tour.

How to Avoid The Porta Potty During a Race

We've all seen it and most of us have done it ... 30 minutes (or less) into a race athletes are already looking for a port potty. The good news is that it doesn't have to be that way. The secret is a proper hydration plan before the gun goes off, and here's how you do it.

Still using GU, PowerGel or Clif SHOT?
See why athletes are making the switch to e-Gel, the only Electrolyte Energy Gel. Get 230 mg Sodium, 85 mg Potassium and more complex carbs than any other gel.
