The original Spartan approach has evolved to a level equal to a typical club-sponsored century. We now actually try to help riders finish, rather than just throwing out the challenge. There are now six full rest stops (including lunch), sag wagons, radio links, and extra water stops. Because the course is so difficult and remote, we log every rider through every rest stop, radio the information back to the finish. We then track each individual’s progress on a master chart we call the War Board. The event is timed.
Bike the West is pleased to bring back the Boat Cruise – 35 Mile ride to offer a unique and shorter ride distance. There are limited spots for this ride option.
Ride Santa Barbara 100 takes place in one of the most beautiful and challenging cycling locations in the United States. We offer four distinct courses to suit a range of cycling abilities – each course offering a world class Santa Barbara cycling experience.
All courses start at historic Leadbetter Beach and follow the beautiful Santa Barbara beachfront before tuning inland. Cyclists will wind through exclusive neighborhoods, experience the rolling foothills lined with citrus and avocado orchards of the front range, climb some of the most famous mountains in the country, and enjoy some of the most beautiful views in Southern California.
Okay, we get it. You’re an animal!! But here’s something for your morning commute!
The double century has a eighteen-hour soft time limit. The double century riders can start between 3:30 AM and 6:00 AM. The double century closes at 10:00 PM soft limit, but completion is key and riders are allowed to get credit after 10 pm. No double century rider is allowed to attempt or start the second loop after 2:30 PM.
Single Century riders can start the first loop between 3:30 AM and 6:00 AM or they can start the second loop between 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM.
