At 805 Cycling Tours Guides, we know what it's like to travel to an unfamiliar region to ride and not know where to go. With our 40 years of area knowledge, we can provide you reassurance that your time will be spent wisely on some of Southern California's famous canyons and agricultural plains. You will ride on the same roads where the pros come to train!
Whether it's winter, spring, summer or fall, Southern California has the mildest most beautiful cycling weather in the world. We are especially lucky here in the beautiful Santa Monica mountains. Come climb canyon roads where the pros come to train in the off season. Race down roads that twist and turn through oak tree forests as you gain elevation to the summit. Some compare these climbs to those in the Alps or Pyrenees.This is where five Amgen Tour of California stages took place. Greats like Hincapie, Leipheimer, Sagan, Zabriskie and so many more raced on the very roads you will be training on. Experience firsthand the famous “Snake” that the pro riders raced three loops of during the Tour on the iconic Rockstore route. This is where reaching the summit rewards your efforts. From 2,000 feet above, you gaze across the natural beauty of the mountains then down upon the ocean below. Your day is filled with cycling along the beautiful Pacific Ocean on the infamous Pacific Coast Highway.
LAX and BUR are within 40 miles from your hotel in the Conejo Valley. This is the area people come to to get faster, stronger and gain endurance while enjoying breathtaking landscapes with outstanding weather. From the tree lined city streets passing by pristine lakes and livestock pastures to rolling highways that run along Malibu, you will get a taste of Southern California others only get in a car on their way to Disneyland. Riding in the foothills and meandering mountain climbs, you'll get your own dose of Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride…with just as big of a smile.
Several restaurants and shopping are within a half mile of your hotel. Evenings dining in a nice restaurant or perhaps sampling some of our local breweries are always a real treat and there are plenty of options to choose from.
