Big Sur Adventures offers one-of-a-kind tours of all of the area’s best sights! See Carmel, Monterey, and Pacific Grove on the back of one of our electric bikes – our powerful eBikes make climbing the region’s hills and inclines a breeze! Take the scenic route on the 17-Mile Drive Tour and see one of the country’s most picturesque rides. For beginner cyclists or those wanting a slower pace, our Family Friendly 17 Mile Drive Tour and Carmel-by-the-Sea Tour are made for you! With miles of ocean-front riding, you’re sure to spot tons of wildlife while you learn about our rich history. Looking for something a little more advanced? Our intimate Big Sur’s Old Coast Road Tour takes you into the back country on the old dirt wagon road. Optional hotel pickup in our open Jeep Wrangler adds to the adventure! We have public tours everyday, but if you want to have an intimate experience with your family, can readily organize a private experience of all of the above. Read more about our options below, and rest assured: you’re in safe hands with Big Sur Adventures.

Why do we love our #carmelbythesea tour?
1. Feels like riding through a fairytale village
2. The cars are traveling slower than the bikes
3. Wow these beaches are incredible!
4. That e in ebike makes all these little (but sometimes steep) hills easy-peasy

*no horse sighting guaranteed 😁🐴 (btw if anyone knows the who and why of the horse on #carmelbeach we are curious to know!)

A peek 👀 at our Old Coast Road Tour 🚵‍♀️☀️🌲🌊. Can’t overstate how much we love this ride!
Book through link in bio. For intermediate to advanced riders.

#bigsur #backcountry #thescenicroute #dirtroads

As of 5/17/24 north coast Big Sur will be open!
That means, starting Friday, you can drive from Carmel all the way to just past Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park.
There is a hard closure just south of JPBS, specifically at post mile 29.5. With two more closures south of that.
There is no route south through Big Sur right now. Seriously, no alternate way through, no other road to take out. If you enter Big Sur, you will have to turn around and go back out the way you came.
Crazy right?
This rugged, breathtaking stretch of wilderness is downright untamable. Steep cliffs + intense weather patterns = mudslides, rock slides, and road slip-outs.
So yes you can get to Big Sur, a lot of it anyway; just plan to exit the way you came. And as always be respectful of this beautiful place while you visit. Leave only footprints and take only pictures.
BEST NEWS FOR LAST: with north coast open, our Old Coast Road Tours are back on track and ready to book! Check link in bio for details. Can’t emphasis enough how otherworldly this ride is. Truly one of a kind experience.
