The Presta team is hard at work adding videos to our rides library in anticipation of our rapidly approaching Beta launch. The videos listed below are a sample of our ride library. We are currently adding additional rides in the United States and Europe.
The Presta video crew brings a passion for cycling to the process. Every Presta Ride is actually ridden on a bike before it is filmed so we are certain to only bring our users the best experiences possible.
Please let us know if there are specific rides you would like to see added to the platform and we will see what we can do to add them to our video "to do" list.
Presta users are welcome to submit videos that we can turn into rides on our platform. If you are interested in submitting a video, please contact us and we will send you the technical requirements for our videos. If we like a video which is submitted, we will turn it into a Presta Ride, send you Presta Gear and give you credit for producing the video.
Castle Creek Road
Aspen, CO, USA
12.5 miles and 1800 feet of vert
This ride is a wonderful rolling climb out of Aspen to the Ashcroft ghost town. The road follows Castle Creek with stunningly beautiful mountains, pine trees and aspen trees. The video was shot during the Winter so there are several feet of snow lining the road.
There are two Segment Challenges on this ride. “Creek Ridge” is a two mile segment with four to seven degree climbs with 500 feet of vertical. “Bear Paw” is a one mile segment with four to six degree climbs with 250 feet of vertical.
Pacific Coast Highway (PCH)
Sonoma, CA, USA
35.2 miles and 1200 feet of vert
The Pacific Coast Highway is an iconic road stretching for 656 miles along the coast of California. The Presta portion is 35.2 miles of winding, hilly road hugging the coast and winding through the redwood trees. The road can be a bit challenging to ride on a real bike due to traffic, so the Presta ride is a great way to experience this gem.
There are two segment challenges on this ride. “Cattle Ridge” is a three mile climb to the top of the pasture land with four to eight degree climbs with 650 feet of vertical. “Ocean Front” is a four mile segment rolling along the cliffs of the ocean.
Sonoma, CA, USA
13.1 miles and 800 feet of vert
The Bohemian Highway is a bikers dream of rolling hills and winding roads through the redwood trees of Sonoma County, California starting in the town of Monte Rio and going through the town of Occidental.
“Occidental” is the segment challenge on this ride with a 400 foot climb with 4-6 degree grades into the town of Occidental.
Dry Creek Road and Alexander Valley
Sonoma, CA, USA
28.5 miles and 600 feet of vert
Dry Creek Road may be the most frequently biked road in all of California. The gently rolling hills and picturesque views of the vineyards of Sonoma County make it the perfect morning ride. After finishing Dry Creek Road you will cross over to the Alexander Valley and ride through quite large vineyards. This is the perfect ride for someone looking for a fun and challenging ride but without punishing climbs.
The segment challenge on this ride is “The 101” with a three mile, 400 foot climb up to cross highway 101.
Frying Pan Road
Basalt, CO, USA
13.1 miles and 1200 feet of vert
Following the Frying Pan River from Basalt to the Ruedi Reservoir, this quiet road is one of the most scenic road rides in all of Colorado. There is a slight uphill grade most of the way and then a short but challenging climb at the end up to the reservoir.
“Pump House” is the Segment Challenge on this ride with a two mile climb with four to eight degree climbs with 500 feet of vertical ending at the reservoir pump house.
Sonoma, CA, USA
27.1 miles and 2600 feet of vert
Geysers Road is an epic ride into the Mayacamas Mountain Range which separates Sonoma County from the Napa Valley. The ride starts on a one lane road with unpaved sections and lots of steep climbs and descents. After reaching Geysers Road there are two major climbs with up to 15 percent grades. This ride will definitely test your mettle.
There are two segment challenges on this ride, and we emphasize the word “challenges” on these. “No Walking” is a five mile climb with 1000 feet of vertical with grades up to 15%. “Go Up Again” follows a major descent and climbs 1000 vertical feet over 5 miles.
Tucson, AZ, USA
22.5 miles and 5500 feet of vert
Possibly the most iconic climb in all of the United States, Mount Lemmon climbs 5500 feet over 22.5 miles. With a winding road, beautiful rock formations and spectacular vistas this is about as good as cycling gets. 5500 feet of climbing is a big workout. The grades never get above 7% so the ride can be handled by a lot of riders. There are signs on the side of the road announcing every 1000 foot elevation increment so it is fun to see how many signs you can see on the way up!
This entire route is a segment challenge, but we did throw in two challenges to keep you entertained on your way up. Rest up and give these challenges your best!
Parker Canyon Lake
Elgin, AZ, USA
21.5 miles and 1600 feet of vert
About 60 miles Southeast of Tucson, this ride starts at the Copper Hop Brewery and follows Route 83 to Parker Canyon Lake just North of the Mexican border. A winding road with gently rolling hills makes this an awesome ride. Wide open spaces, desert landscapes and distant mountains make the scenery a pleasure to watch. With max grades of 7% this is a very manageable ride.
The segment challenge on this ride is “Lake Hill” which is almost at the end of the ride. With 7% grades and 600 feet of vertical try to finish this ride feeling strong!
