LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Fifty came with a televised bash, celebrity friends and a black-tie dinner, but Oprah Winfrey will have a low-key 60th birthday at home in California on Wednesday.

The billionaire media entrepreneur will have a "quiet dinner" in the seaside town of Montecito, 145km north-west of Los Angeles, says to a source familiar with her plans.

Winfrey had previously said she would have "the biggest blowout party I can dream of", but scaled back the affair after the guest list grew too large, the source said.

Instead, last week she and her friends in West Hollywood attended a birthday SoulCycle spin class, an indoor stationary cycling exercise with motivational coaching. Winfrey posted a video online after the class with a group of people wearing navy blue t-shirts with "Happy Birthday Oprah" on the front.
