The Ruta del Vino Bike Ride & Wine Festival is an international cycling event through the Wine Capital of Mexico: The Guadalupe Valley, just outside of Ensenada, Baja California. Along the route you will ride past over 25 wineries in the heart of the valley, where the aroma of grapes mixes with ocean breezes and the sun permeates the picturesque rural landscape.
The event course is fully paved, covering 25 miles with over 1,200 feet of elevation gain. The ride is considered moderately difficult and is recommended only for cyclists in good physical condition. Minors must be accompanied at all times by an adult. The event format is both a road race and a fun ride. If you want to compete, you must register as Elite in order to be eligible for prizes.
