Join us at Velo & Vino Solvang in 2024!
AdventureCORPS is pleased to present Velo & Vino Solvang, a Wine Country Cycling Camp based in California's Solvang and Santa Ynez Valley
We welcome you join us in Solvang, the "Danish Capital of America" nestled in Southern California's world renowned Santa Ynez Valley wine region equally famous for its scenic and quiet roads for cycling.
Participants will enjoy svehicle-supported world-class cycling in the Santa Ynez Valley. Each day's ride will start and finish in Solvang, with multiple distances offered each day, offering something for everyone. This camp is suitable for most any eager cyclist, whether gearing up for a first-ever century or gran fondo, or for a long season of triathlon, bike racing, bike adventuring. It is also suitable for "bike-curious" runners who want to discover and learn more about this sport. Best of all, this cycling retreat offers the pure enjoyment of exploring a fantastic cycling region.
We will start our rides each day at our host hotel, and we'll also enjoy wineries, wine tasting, and fabulous food. The riding, camaraderie, and setting are so fabulous that we believe this camp will become an annual pilgrimage for all who attend.
Located just a 40-minute drive from Santa Barbara (or two hours from LAX), Solvang is known as both the "Danish Capital of America" and the "Most Christmasy Town in America." Solvang and the Santa Ynez Valley are also legendary for providing some of the finest cycling in North America, and several pro cycling teams host their winter training camps here.
Truly, you will love the cycling, and you will love the town and the valley. Non-riding spouses and family members will have plenty to do, too, while you're out riding, including horseback riding, glider rides, shopping, touristing, hiking, visiting secluded beaches, and more - and, of course, plenty of wine tasting! (There are also local breweries!) And there is an option for non-rider attendees to join the meals and wine-tasting, but without the cycling.

Founded in 1984, AdventureCORPS® made its name producing the world’s toughest endurance races in dramatic, remote locations that few people would ever visit, let alone run or bike across. Our events have allowed runners and bicyclists to explore Death Valley, Cape Fear, the Salton Sea, the Mojave Desert, and the Nevada outback in the USA, as well as the Mustang region of Nepal, Yunan Province of China, the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, as well as Armenia and Artsakh.
Local time: 2:09 PM
In the running world, we are most known for hosting the annual Badwater 135 Ultramarathon from Death Valley to Mt. Whitney each July, along with sister races Badwater Cape Fear and Salton Sea. However, we got our start in the cycling world and have produced over 120 cycling events, including cycling tours and camps in Death Valley, eastern San Diego County, the Santa Monica Mountains, and Mt. Shasta.
Please understand that Velo & Vino Solvang is designed as a multi-day lifestyle adventure - six days of fantastic cycling in a gorgeous wine country setting - and the camp is only as difficult as YOU want it to be. Most days, participants can make their daily mileage any number they want! If you love cycling and want to get away from it all and enjoy incredible cycling and a wine-themed retreat, then you will enjoy Velo & Vino Solvang! (And of course, for those who prefer, there are local brews available, and plenty of non-alcoholic beverages, as well!)
