The Wine Country Bike Trek is a unique and well-established cycling event that takes place in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley wine country and benefits People Helping People. Riders will have a choice of signing up for one, two and three day rides. Our goal is a minimum of 50 riders. Riders will be given an opportunity to collect pledges for a chance to win a variety of great prizes.
Each day, riders choose from a 30- or 50-mile ride. Volunteers will greet you every ten miles with fully catered rest stops. The Spirit of the Wine Country Bike Trek is community, family, and friends. We guarantee you’ll walk away with new friends and fantastic memories of your weekend in the Santa Ynez Valley. Best of all, the proceeds from the Bike Trek make a difference in the lives of those in need.
