Bike the Bridges & BrewFest routes

The Bike the Bridges event is an event focused on bringing the community together to raise money to support Special Olympic athletes in the community.

The scenic ride will begin and end at Waterfront Park in Martinez, and riders will be treated with panoramic views of the Carquinez and Benicia Bridges as they climb their way around the courses, getting their stomach's ready for the post-race BrewFest and all you can eat BBQ.

There will be 4 different distances to choose from:

25 Miles which has an elevation gain of 467m

50K with 653m of elevation gain

100K which features a solid 1,284m of elevation gain

100 Mile Century Ride with a whopping 2,562m of elevation gain

The course will also feature The King and Queen of the Mountain.

This is a timed portion of the Bike the Bridges which will be sure to ignite the competitive flame of the riders that choose to tackle it. The hill will be Crockett Boulevard, a 540-ft ascent spread over 2 miles with a maximum grade of 13.8%. Those that come out on top in each age bracket will receive the coveted polka-dotted jersey.

At the end of the race, riders will celebrate at the BrewFest, where over a dozen of the best local breweries will be present to provide you with a sample of their latest brews to you enjoy as you refuel with all you can eat BBQ.
