The award-winning cycling tour outfitter explores California’s Sonoma and legendary Dry Creek Valley on the world’s best bikes while indulging in the Zen-inspired SingleThread.
The captivating farm-restaurant-inn is garnering worldwide acclaim for offering experiences based on “omotenashi,” the Japanese concept of hospitality whereby “guests are entertained wholeheartedly.”|
“Every detail is meticulously considered at SingleThread,” says Trek Travel President, Tania Burke. “It’s five guestrooms are luxuriously timeless, dinner in its James Beard award-winning restaurant is flawless, and a tour of the private farm is enchanting.”
All are part of the four-day, three night SingleThread California Weekend Bike Tour that begins and ends in Healdsburg, California.
Guests will cycle through the Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys, passing Lake Sonoma and 1,400 year-old redwoods in Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve.
They’ll experience an elaborate 11-course, wine- or sake-paired tasting menu in the 2017 James Beard Award-winning dining room which The New York Times calls “serene” with “panache.” (The San Francisco Chronicle describes as a “flawless four star experience”).
A family-style, traditional Japanese donabe dinner in the SingleThread private study and private tour of a local farm, surrounded by Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, and Chardonnay vines, are additional trip highlights.
The limited availability of this four-day, three-night trip is offered from October 23 - 26, 2017. Priced from $4,799 per person, the trip begins and ends in Healdsburg, California.
