April in Sierra Nevada Foothills is a beautiful time of year for a bike ride. The air is light and refreshing, with the recent spring rains and the orchards and foliage are in full bloom with brilliant amazing variety of spring colors. Our routes will take you along uncrowded back roads, past local orchards and farms.
