Eroica California: Pasobilities in Cycling

Originating from Italy, the unique bicycle event Eroica California returns to Paso Robles this spring with cycling enthusiasts from all over the world gathering for the three-day festival April 8-10 to celebrate the history of cycling and enjoy California’s Central Coast Wine Country. 

Home to picturesque winding roads, vineyards, oak-studded rolling hills and coastal mountain ranges, Paso is truly the perfect location for this event, allowing organizers the opportunity to create the first Eroica California ride with an ocean view.

Additional highlights include an expanded assortment of vendors (featuring handmade bike frame makers, bicycle art, and cycling clubs and shops), cycling celebrity guests, special event dinners and much more.

The grand finale of Eroica California is the vintage ride. On Sunday, April 10, an estimated 1,500 cyclists will don vintage cycling apparel and set off on vintage bicycles (made in 1987 or earlier) on one of four scenic routes over gravel and paved roads that mimic the heroic days of cycling’s past.
