The inaugural event is less than 10 days away and we couldn’t be more excited!
From the moment riders leave their front door the service is first class. Participants can choose to have their bikes packed and shipped for them with Bikeflights and re-assembled with Velofix. All riders have to do is meet their bike in sunny California. For those who would rather rent a bike for the weekend, we have partnered with Raceday Transport & Rentals which has a large selection ranging from standard to premium plus bikes.
Package pick-up will take place at the sophisticated Four Seasons Silicon Valley East Palo Alto on Friday June 22nd from 3 pm till 7 pm. Riders will also have a chance to interact with sponsors, partners, and the charities of the event.
The ride kicks off at 7 am on June 23rd, with hundreds of excited riders including cycling legend Bob Roll at the start line and a live DJ bumping tunes. Cyclists will experience a neutralized roll out across town saving their legs for the beautiful Northern Californian countryside where the timing will start. They will pass famous spots such as La Honda, Pescadero Stage Road, Tunitas Creek, and the beaches of San Gregorio. From towering red woods, over rolling hills, to the dramatic Californian coastline … if the hills don’t leave you breathless the views surely will.
Featuring delicious on-course rest stop food for riders to replenish their calories including re-hydration by nuun. Cyclists will challenge the King of the Mountain and Queen of the Mountain hill climb after passing Tunitas Creek. Thereafter it’s a downhill ride back into town towards the grand finish.
A Four Seasons gourmet finish line food festival complete with a live DJ awaits cyclists after finishing the inaugural ride. Riders, family, and friends will share the excitement and celebrate over scrumptious food and some cold drinks!
Online registration closes June 19th at 9 am PT.
