Giro D’Oro Cycling, located in the heart of California Gold Country, specializes in providing the vacationing cyclist fully supported bicycle tours through scenic terrain year round. Our location in the Sacramento Valley has been an integral part of the Tour of California, and many of the world’s top cyclists have been known to train in the area.   Giro D’Oro was founded on the belief that the area’s climate, the magnificent foothills of the Sierra Nevada, the American River Bike Trail, and the fascinating 49′er Gold Rush history (not to mention the local vineyards) are what make the California Gold Country a great place to experience a bike trip and to explore all the treasures northern California has to offer.

 

As members of the League of American Bicyclists and the California Bicycle Coalition, we are committed to promoting cycling within our local community of Folsom & Sacramento.  We advocate cycling as an alternative form of transportation and recreation.  We offer Bike To Work education programs, safety courses and maintenance courses.  We also sponsor Women-Only clinics to educate and empower women cyclists, and actively participate in May is Bike Month, a nationwide movement celebrating the bicycle.  Our goal is make riding a bicycle part of a healthy and active lifestyle.
