Straight Talk

We want to make sure you're on the trip that's right for you. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Traffic 

California Wine Country is a popular destination for cyclists and drivers alike, who’ve had to deal with increasing traffic congestion along the region's main thoroughfares over the years. Backroads strives to find quiet, off-the-beaten track routes, but due to the area's geography and the amount of ground we cover, there are routes on this trip with sections that follow more heavily trafficked roads. We’ll alert you in advance so you can bypass these areas in the shuttle, if you choose
