Spring Classic Metric Half Century (35-Miles) – Participants will get to enjoy the amazing views of Saddleback Mountain while riding through Santiago Canyon with a quick turn for home; all of the glory with a shorter distance. This course has approximately 2300 feet of elevation.

Easy Breezy 15 Mile – The perfect combination of flat and short, this course has less than 700 feet of elevation.
