The Sequoia Century begins in Los Altos Hills, CA. This epic 100.2 mile journey has an impressive ten thousand ft of gain! You’ll enjoy miles of redwood forested climbs and descents, vast ridge top vistas, cool creek-side canyons and bucolic coastal agricultural lands. This route provides well staffed and supported rest stops, and the quiet coastal towns of La Honda, San Gregorio and Pescadero. There are at least three “bail-out” options to test your tenacity and resolve, and we’ll have our “Fun Finish” with ice-cold chocolate milk, vendors, music and a hearty meal at our shaded site at Foothill College to complete your amazing day!

Location: Cielo Hotel, 651 N. Main St.
Bishop, CA

 

The Eastern Sierra Double Century begins with a mass start through the city streets of Bishop, then will quickly head out of town. After a fast, flat warm up heading north through the cattle ranches of Round Valley, the climbing begins in earnest! Ascending up from Round Valley to Crowley Lake, the Old Sherwin Grade winds through pinion pine and juniper woodlands while following Lower Rock Creek to enter Mono County and the heartland of the Eastern Sierra. After cresting Sherwin Grade, a rider friendly 1800′ climb, you are greeted by the startling views of Mt. Ritter and Mt. Banner, and the serrated ridge of the Minarets in the northern distance. North a few miles further awaits Lake Crowley and the grassy bed of Long Valley. Further north en route to Mammoth Lakes, you pass Hilton and McGee Creeks; the mouths of their canyons filled with huge glacial moraines empty into the valley from the Sierra high country.

Ride the Gap

Ride the Gap

Register

Location: Center Street Park
Parowan, UT

 

Ride the Gap begins in Parowan Utah. Founded in 1851 by Utah Pioneers looking to extract ore from the local iron deposits, the city hasn’t changed much since. There are less than 3000 people who call Parowan home and that’s ok by them. The locals are friendly and match the quaint scenery that will surround you on your 30, 55, 75 or 100 mile ride around and through the Parowan Gap.

The Gap is worth a stop as you can see evidence of the earliest known residence of the area, the Fremont and Anasazi Indians. The Gap is a mountain that was split in two by a volcanic intrusion. The sandstone that was left bare by the split is covered with petroglyphs and contains multiple calendars that track both the moon and sun. The Gap is worth a trip and is a bonus as you pedal out your century.
