Devil's Slide Ride routes

The Devil doesn't wear Prada, the Devil wears cleats, a cycling vest and a helmet. The Devil's Slide Ride will test your quads and your heart. There are three race options described below:

Century from Hell: Weighing in with a huge 9,200 feet of elevation gain across the 101 miles of coastline. This route is listed as one of NorCal's top 10 century rides and displays the best of San Mateo County. Riders must be 18 years or older to participate.

Merciless Metric Century: A solid 100KM ride along the San Mateo coastline and with 5,500 feet of elevation gain this is not to be scoffed at.

Fiendish Forty Miler: An easier option for those starting out their cycling careers, this path sticks to the coastline all the way down to Lobitos before circling back up the coast. This includes a more moderate 2,500 feet of elevation gain over the duration of the course with one notable climb as you approach the Whittemore Gulch Trail.

Please note that each of the courses includes multiple aid stations where riders can refuel and rehydrate.
