Sonoma, California

Sonoma County is famous for its scenic backroad cycling, and this century shows you why. In addition to visiting many of the region’s premier vineyards, the route winds through redwoods, apple orchards, and shady broadleaf forest. It meanders across meadows sprinkled with wildflowers and climbs over hillsides dotted with eucalyptus, bay, and oak. The 200-K route even visits the magnificent, rugged Sonoma coast. Depending on your route, you’ll cross the beautiful Russian River as many as six times. Again, depending on your route, you might pass through as many as seven different vineyard appellations: Russian River Valley, Green Valley, Sonoma Coast, Northern Sonoma, Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, and Chalk Hill.
