A Wind Wolves Preserve Overnight in California

Ride a bike path and low-traffic, rural roads to get to California’s Wind Wolves Preserve.

Bicycle Adventurers:  James, Sean, Logan, Mario, Ron, and myself all carried our own gear. Stephanie, Dino, Joe, Sarah, and Susan decided to take it easy and get support. 

When: June 2017, hot and 100 degrees

Accommodations: A nice campground with running water and flush toilets at the Wind Wolves Preserve

Distance: 82 miles over two days

Bonus tip for this adventure: Leave early in the day if you do this ride in the summer. You don't want to be out there when it is 100 °F. Arriving late is not really an option since Wind Wolves Preserve closes their gate at 6:00 PM every night.

Day One

We rode out 48 miles to the Wind Wolves campground. It was hot and there was not much shade along the route. Every time we found some, we took a short recovery break.

Day Two

We woke up early for breakfast, broke down camp, and headed out by 8:00 AM. What a sweet decent leaving Wind Wolves — effortless rolling for six miles! Then we cruised back on Old River Rd. to get back into town for a 36-mile day.
