When using Summit Cycling Adventures, you’ll be able to take advantage of tapping into local knowledge while discovering backroads, nature reserves, and local “secret spots”, while soaking in the natural environment on road and gravel rides.

I wanted to share my home state in a way that feels like exploring,” says founder and ride leader Marc McConnell. “Epic rides are mixed with gorgeous sights and fun side trips that offer a more memorable experience, challenging your body and refreshing your spirit.”

Summit Cycling Adventures says that they’ve intentionally integrated side excursions into the day’s ride. The objective is to not get stuck into just riding from point A to point B, but exploring the points in between. On the tours, you’ll be seeing hot springs, and waterfalls, taking short hikes through Redwoods, lava field lakes, and even stopping for coffee and beers.

“I created Summit Cycling Adventures to help adventurous riders enjoy that same experience without having to figure out all the logistics, routing, meals, and gear transport for themselves. Now you can just show up and have fun!” – Marc McConnel
