Touring with the Santa Rosa Cycling Club
The Santa Rosa Cycling Club organizes cycling tours each summer for its members.
Our tours are designed to be cooperative efforts, with all participants taking a hand in all of the chores that need to be done each day...in particular the loading and unloading of luggage and general clean-up around camp. These tours are a dynamic embodiment of the old adage, “Many hands make light work.”
Most of our tours are laid out as point-to-point progressions, moving from one campground to another. Where there is more than one good ride in a given region, we may stay in the same camp for more than one day and do loop rides from that base camp. Usually though, most tours will involve moving at least a few times during the tour. These are typically camping tours, but occasionally, when viable camps can’t be found where we need them, we will stay in motels or inns. In most cases, the cost of the motels is not included in the entry fee, although there have been exceptions to that.
You'll find a more extensive description of how these tours work here.
