Our Best of the Bay event includes an official CTC double century as well as a single century option. Both rides start and finish in Castro Valley, California.
Our double century route has three segments on which we include an experience filled with many of the best and most memorable cycling roads offered in the San Francisco Bay Area. The first segment has many small climbs and descents heading North to Grizzly Peak and back.
The most challenging part of the route is the second segment, which climbs and descends Mt. Diablo.
The third and final segment of the double century ride travels to these other great cycling offerings in the Bay Area: Sunol-Ohlone Regional Park, the Livermore vineyards, and the foothills of Mt. Diablo. The final 60 miles are less demanding, resulting in a finish without any significant challenging climbs.
Our single century is a part of the double century route and includes Mt. Diablo, Las Trampas, and Sunol-Ohlone Regional Park.

The Ride Around the Pioneers in One Day (RATPOD) takes place in the remarkably scenic Big Hole Valley of southwestern Montana. Riders will encounter three wilderness mountain ranges. Pristine rivers are followed. The valley is sparsely populated and therefore lightly traveled by automobile. This is bicycle nirvana!
RATPOD starts and ends each year in Dillon, Montana. Registration for RATPOD is open to individual riders who are welcome to ride as much or as little of the route as desired. Riders who choose to ride only part of the 127-mile route are responsible for their own logistics and transportation between Dillon and their alterate start/finish location(s). There are five food/water stops along the route, as well as pre-ride block party (Friday evening) and post-ride food and festivities (Saturday night) following the ride at the start/finish on the University of Montana-Western campus in Dillon.

From the high mountains of Telluride to the spectacular desert landscape of Gateway, CO, the Mountains to Desert Ride is a beautiful race that serves as the single fundraising event for the Just for Kids Foundation. Cyclists descend past hillsides of quaking aspens along a route that passes through millions of years of geologic record, ultimately finding themselves at the base of striated sandstone cliffs reaching up to 1,000 feet overhead. Those who choose to push on past Gateway for the longer distance rides will climb into the beautiful Unaweep Canyon. All fundraising benefits the Just for Kids Foundation. Every dollar raised is generously matched 100% by the Carstens Family Fund at the Denver Foundation.
