The beautiful Santa Ynez Valley will yet again be our playground for the 2018 Grand Masters Cycling Winter Camp.  This season’s weekend will be Friday Jan. 12 to Monday Jan. 15, 2018.  Yes! It is Martin Luther King weekend!

The riding should be spectacular, the company congenial, and the Marriott we now know is an elegant and convenient home base.  We will again have our own Event Room, for gatherings right there in the hotel. There will be rides planned for Friday afternoon, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday morning.
  1. We will warm up on a ride Friday afternoon. Friday evening get-together and dinner is to be determined.
  2. On Saturday there will be multiple routes for different types of riders and lunch in Solvang. Saturday evening get-together and dinner is to be determined.
  3. On Sunday, again there will be multiple routes available and lunch in Solvang,
  4. The Monday ride will return to the hotel by noon.
Our headquarters will once again be at the Santa Ynez Valley Marriott in Buellton, just off Route 101, 5 miles east of Solvang.  This is a full-service hotel, with a pool, tennis courts, a gym, steam room, racquetball and squash courts, even available massage and skin therapy.  Rides will start and end there, with possible detours to lunch spots.  To look at the hotel and its facilities, click HERE
