Healdsburg, known as one of the most bike-friendly community in the heart of Sonoma County's wine country. This Challenge takes you on awe-inspiring cycling routes beside picturesque vineyards, soaring redwood forests, and the dramatic Sonoma coast. The experience is first-class all the way, but the real awe comes from knowing you’re making a profound difference for athletes with disabilities.
Riding in Healdsburg
Healdsburg’s commitment to providing a cycling haven ensures that whether you're navigating your first turns or conquering challenging gradients, the experience is nothing short of memorable. Novice cyclists will delight in the gentle, rolling hills of Dry Creek Valley, winding through sunlit vineyards, along Occidental, Guerneville, and the Russian River where the river meets the sea. Experienced riders will tackle the more demanding ascents and thrilling descents towards Lake Sonoma, Rockpile, the Geysers, where undulating roads provide both a physical challenge and the exhilaration of speeding down slopes with panoramic views.
