Las Vegas

Day 1: Las Vegas: meet and greet!

Welcome to Las Vegas! We recommend arriving at the hotel a day early to explore Las Vegas and relax a bit before meeting your Tour Leaders. We will arrange a meeting time and place at the hotel for an orientation, and then it is off to pick up your bikes! Tonight you will have a chance to meet the rest of the group at the Welcome Dinner. Get some rest tonight, as tomorrow we start our journey through some of the most amazing scenery in the Wild West!

Death Valley – the hottest place on earth!

Day 2: Las Vegas - NV, Mammoth Lake CA (Miles:315, Kilometers:507)

Leaving the bright lights of Vegas behind we head west, where our ride takes us through Death Valley – famously the hottest place in the world! As you’ll soon notice, it’s almost entirely lacking in shade. The valley’s chiseled tiers of rock form crevices at the foot of sharply silhouetted hills: exotic mineral content transforms prehistoric mudflats into spectrums of sun baked iridescence. Riding Death Valley is hot and thirsty work so we take an early lunch at Furnace Creek Ranch. Then after negotiating a series of mountain curves, we will have dropped hundreds of feet below sea level to discover ourselves in the basin of Death Valley. It’s time to head west again, riding through Sequoia National Park up to Mammoth Lakes, which are a popular spot for mountain biking in summer and skiing in the winter.

Yosemite National Park

Day 3: Mammoth Lake CA - Yosemite CA (Miles:150, Kilometers:242)

Leaving Mammoth Lakes for dust our trip continues northwards for a while before we arrive at the notorious Tioga Pass to traverse Yosemite National Park. Through the winding granite canyons we go, giving both you and your Harley a proper workout. For the first several miles, muscle flexing turns are standard and the road demands all your attention as at last we enter the mother of all US National Parks. The very name Yosemite conjures up such a range of imagery, and raises expectations about as high as they can go. Yet as you’ll see, Yosemite is just as stunningly scenic and untamed as you could ever expect – and then some. The day’s ride finishes at El Portal (the gateway), where we overnight.

San Francisco

Day 4: Yosemite CA - San Francisco CA (Miles:200, Kilometers:322)

Our bike-bound exploration of Yosemite National Park continues for a while before yet again we head west – this time towards San Francisco. Crossing San Rafael Bridge takes us into Marin County, which is often rated the wealthiest county in all of the US. It’s a playground for the rich, but also lovers of natural beauty; where deep redwood forests, mountains and sandy beaches compete for your attention with flashy displays of wealth. We stop at picturesque Sausalito, a seaside town that was once lined with saloons and sailors on shore leave. These days it’s more like the French Riviera. After lunch we head directly for the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and right into San Francisco, where we’ll stay for the following two nights.

San Francisco

Day 5: San Francisco CA, rest day

You have the whole day at your leisure to explore San Francisco, arguably the most liberal city in the US. It’s a hip, highly individualistic, and surprisingly compact place which has an almost European panache and offers many opportunities for sightseeing. We offer several optional excursions today, such as a Cable Car rides, a Bay Cruise, a trip to Alcatraz, or even a Napa Valley wine tour. Or you can just go at your own pace.

Bixby Bridge on US Highway #1

Day 6: San Francisco CA - Monterey CA (Miles:118, Kilometers:190)

Today as we ride the craggy coastline, you’ll get your first taste of what is widely held to be one of the best motorcycle rides in the world, heading south on the celebrated PCH (Hwy #1) along the Pacific Ocean. En route to Monterey, we’ll admire splendid views of the coves and inlets of the Pacific. Monterey is home to the world renowned Laguna Seca Automobile and Motorcycle Racetrack and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The coastline here is simply astonishing and there’s plenty of scope for great photo stops. We overnight in Monterey.

Big Sur Coastline, US Highway #1

Day 7: Monterey CA - Pismo Beach CA (Miles:152, Kilometers:245)

Our ride along scenic Hwy #1 continues in style, hugging the cliff’s edges of the wild and undeveloped Big Sur Coast. The 90-something miles of rocky cliffs form a transcendent landscape where river canyons are lined with redwood groves, and where the Santa Lucia Mountains rise spectacularly out of the blue-green Pacific. About halfway along the Big Sur Coast we arrive at Esalen. Located on a cliff top high above the raging Pacific surf, Esalen is named after the long gone native tribes who must have once enjoyed its natural hot springs. Cruising by San Simeon, Cambria and Morro Bay we eventually come to Pismo Beach. A special treat - our overnight stay tonight is at a luxurious ocean resort.

Venice Beach

Day 8: Pismo Beach CA - Los Angeles CA (Miles:225, Kilometers:362)

The final day and we get our motors running, and head out on Hwy 101 one more time – this time heading towards Los Angeles. We cut inland at Santa Maria for some fun on the scenic back roads to be found there. At Santa Barbara it’s back onto Hwy 101, and then we ride directly into Malibu, the beach colony favoured by the rich and famous. Some twenty miles later we come to Santa Monica and Venice. Santa Monica is LA’s biggest resort – and its oldest. In the 1960s it was a far out beachfront playground. These days it’s a liberal and overtly health conscious community. Just look at the bodies at Muscle Beach in Venice. People come to Venice Boardwalk from all over the world – because nowhere else does LA parade itself as it does here. From Venice there’s just one more ride, and that’s to our drop-off location, to return your motorcycle and transfer back to the hotel for the "Good-bye" dinner, where you can cherish all the great memories still fresh in your mind.
