The 44th edition, 2020 Tour of Napa Valley is a Renaissance of sorts, with all of the rides starting and ending in our new venue at the Napa County Fairgrounds in Calistoga, at the North end of the valley. Calistoga is a small town renowned for its hot springs, mud baths, world-class restaurants and Napa Valley wines. As our riders go south on the scenic Silverado Trail and into the Vaca range to the east of the valley, they will visit as many as seven famous wine appellations and enjoy views not only of vineyards, but hillsides of oaks, bays, eucalyptus, as well as redwood forests.
This year we are again offering 5 distances – a flat 35 miles all within the Napa Valley, a “hilly” 50 miles with moderate climbs, a 62.5 mile metric century, an 80 miler that includes all of the climbing but less flat riding and our iconic Century.
In 2014 a new name (B2VT) and a new course was unveiled by the founders of the B2B. There was a new starting area (Historic Battlefield region of Lexington, Concord and Bedford, MA) and final destination (Okemo Mountain Resort in Ludlow, VT) but subsequent editions of the B2VT have been some of the most challenging riding ever! Some new nasty climbs and epic New England roads with an uphill finish at Okemo just added to the legacy! See the 2018 course map here.
The B2VT Ride, though epic, is not for everyone. It is one of the most challenging bike rides in New England and if you sign up, you are expected to finish within the allotted time frame. We do not offer sag wagon service to the finish, you must finish on your own except under extreme circumstances (medical emergency).

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.

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.
Welcome to the Snowball Express Century! The Snowball Express Century ride is part of the Adirondack Ultra Challenge and all mileage will count toward the ADIRONDACK ULTRA CUP.
