CAMBRIA, CA (April 10, 2014) – Situated along iconic Pacific Coast Highway 1 and offering a bounty of bike trails that traverse its picturesque coastal landscape, it’s no surprise that Cambria, CA, has been chosen as a host city for America’s largest and most prestigious cycling race – the AMGEN Tour of California, taking place May 11-18, 2014. Featuring the world’s top professional cycling teams, the Tour de France-style cycling road race will cruise into Cambria on May 14. The demanding, more than 700-mile course takes riders through some of California’s most stunning backdrops, starting in Sacramento and ending in Thousand Oaks. Whether an avid cyclist or simply an excited spectator, the AMGEN Tour, along with National Bike Month, offer good reason to visit Cambria during the month of May.

WHAT TO DO·

Road Bike. It’s not every day you get to navigate the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) on two wheels. From Cambria, the famously beautiful highway will lead you alongside some of the state’s most stunning stretches of coastline: north to San Simeon and Big Sur; south to Cayucos and Morro Bay. Care to visit Paso Robles wine country? Get a visual treat of countless vineyards when you ride amidst rolling green hills from Cambria to Paso Robles on Highway 46 West.

Mountain Bike. Cambria is home to a host of scenic mountain bike trails for both the skilled and beginning rider. Don’t miss exploring the handful of bike-approved trails on the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve, a large, open-space property that parallels Cambria’s rugged, pristine coastline.

Don’t Bike! There’s no shame in cheering from the sidelines when the AMGEN Tour races through. And if biking isn’t your thing, Cambria offers close proximity to countless other entertaining activities, such as exploring its artisan villages of quaint boutiques, restaurants and art galleries; hunting for tide pool treasures along Moonstone Beach; visiting famed Hearst Castle in neighboring San Simeon; tasting the fruits of award-winning Paso Robles wineries located just minutes away on Highway 46 West; and much more.

WHERE TO STAY Whether traveling with biking buddies, your spouse or the entire family, the Cambria Inns collection offers four distinct boutique hotels, ranging from the luxurious to the economical and family-friendly. Located just steps from pristine Moonstone Beach, all offer breathtaking ocean views, comfortable accommodations and convenient access to area activities.
