The Healdsburg Hotel named one of the Favorite Places to Stay for Cyclists in the United States by Outside Magazine
Cycling fans rejoice: A local hotel has been named one of the best places in the country for cyclists by Outside magazine.
The H2 Hotel and its partner hotels, Harmon Guest House and Hotel Healdsburg, were named three of the best “base camps” for cyclists in the United States in a July article.
The H2 Hotel and its partner hotels have teamed up with cycling pro Peter Stetina to offer organized tours and private bike tours in the wine region.
Stetina, who has competed in the Tour de France twice, has lived in Sonoma County for a decade and has plenty of insider tips on where and how to explore the area on two wheels.
That expertise is part of the appeal of staying at Healdsburg, Outside said.
“The [hotels’] program will provide customers with tailor-made bike rides in the California wine country, with the help of a loaner Garmin GPS device preloaded with local routes, ”the article from Outside reads.
Guests of Healdsburg hotels can explore the Geyserville, Cloverdale, Healdsburg, Dry Creek Valley and parts of Western County areas using the guided routes.
The magazine also suggested readers to visit Spoke Folk Cyclery in Healdsburg, which offers bike rentals for locals and tourists.
If you bring your own bike and gear, all three hotels will store them for free. And free cruise bikes are available for transportation around town.
Healdsburg is the only place in California on the list of the top seven places for cyclists.
