Napa9 route

Icon

A brilliant but brutal ride that is certainly not for beginners. The Napa9 takes on the largest peaks in the Napa Valley all in one go. It might surprise people to know that this includes over 13,000 feet of climbing across the 125 mile course.

Riders will meet at the Napa Courthouse and head out of town with a police escort before being unleashed on the unsuspecting Napa community.

Some of the peaks to look forward to are the Wild Horse Valley, Mt. George and Atlast Peak (longest climb). Despite the gruelling hill climbs, riders will be rewarded with stunning views across the valley.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the Napa9 suitable for beginners?
No. This event is a serious challenge and should not be underestimated. If you are an experienced rider and are looking for a challenge then this is perfect, but 13,000 feet of elevation gain is not to be scoffed at. The fastest rider last year did this in 7.5 hours.
Which peaks are included in the Napa9?
The 9 peaks are; Wild Horse Valley Road, Mt. George, Atlas Peak Road, Soda Canyon, Triangle at Lake Hennessey, Oakville Grade, Trinity Road to the County Line, Mt. Veeder and Partrick Road. These total 125 miles and 13,000 feet of elevation gain. The steepest points are on Soda Canyon and Oakville Grade where the gradient reaches 21% and 23.4% respectively.
Will there be support vehicles and can I leave things in there on the Napa9?
Yes, there will be two SAG support vehicles, one to lead and one to follow. It will be slightly cooler in Napa in September so please bring some warmer clothes that you can shed and leave in the SAG vehicles.
Are there aid stations on the Napa9?
Yes, there will be support stops where you can stock up on water and nutrition. You should upload the route map onto your cycling computer so you are aware of where to go and when the next stop will be.
