Dutch Diesel Cycling IRL Experience
October 20-22, 2023

After many virtual miles together we are bringing friends together for weekend of riding through the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area. We'll pass famous landmarks, redwood trees, and smell that fresh ocean air as we cycle through the rugged California coast.  Each day will start in San Francisco riding North across the Golden Gate Bridge through the Marin Headlands, Sausalito, and other coastal towns.  Each ride will end in Sausalito with a 30 minute ferry ride back to San Francisco. 


The tour price for the IRL Experience is $595.  This is a USAC sanctioned event​ and a current license is required.  If you don't have a USAC license, we will provide day licenses for no additional cost for the days we are on the road
