America has 4.12 million miles of public roads. That’s more than any other country in the world. Unsurprisingly, it also has a big road cycling scene and depth and strength at the world pro level too. In such a huge country, where do you start? Our answer –

Head West

Southern California is famous for its warm, relaxed, beach and surf lifestyle. Yet it is also blessed with rugged natural beauty, deserted canyon roads, sweeping vistas and high mountain ridges. It’s perfect for road biking and our guides to road cycling in the Santa Monica Mountains and  Santa Barbara region may just get you reaching to book your plane tickets.

Alternatively, there’s the stunning riding around San Francisco – or of course Boulder in Colorado, which is a massive cycling mecca

And finally, you could consider riding all the way across America (or even South America)! Or even the truly epic Race Across America!
