Beautiful bike ride, then a walking food tour through Carmel-by-the-Sea

Eat a hearty breakfast and then rev your morning with a fun ride on a Specialized Turbo Como ebike from downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea through the forest of Pebble Beach on 17 Mile Drive. Passing several local historic sites, your guide will escort you down the Carmel coastline along Scenic Drive; a one-way, 15-mile per hour road. You’ll pass landmarks such as the Tor House, Butterfly House, Carmel River State Beach, and Clint Eastwood’s Mission Ranch. Once you have your legs under you, your guide will ease you through the Carmel Gate and you’ll experience 17 Mile Drive in a way that most tourists can’t, enjoying some of the most scenic coastal vistas in California using all of your senses. Take lots of photos so you can share the beauty with your friends who couldn’t make it, and then cycle back to Carmel.

After you return to Mad Dogs & Englishmen around 1:15PM, we’ll sort your bikes, you can stretch your legs, and use the facilities.

Your Food Tour Leader will arrive and tag in just before 1:30 to start the remainder of your tour. This two-hour food adventure will comprise four tasting locations, and an exploration of Carmel including its history, architecture and culture. Those over 21 will enjoy delightful adult beverages to accompany your tasty bites.
