Event summary

The Ride Santa Barbara 100 takes place in one of the most beautiful and challenging cycling locations in the United States. We offer four distinct courses to suit every cyclist’s ability – each course offering a world class Santa Barbara cycling experience. All courses start at Leadbetter beach and follow the beautiful Santa Barbara beachfront before tuning inland to experience all Santa Barbara has to offer. Cyclists will wind through some of the most exclusive neighborhoods in the country; experience the rolling foothills lined with citrus and avocado orchards of the front range; and climb some of the most famous mountains in the country, all while experiencing one of the most beautiful views in southern California.

Route description
Route description

The 100 mile course is one of the most challenging and beautiful 100 miles of riding you may ever do.
Starting along the idyllic palm lined beaches of the Santa Barbara water front, you’ll ride through some of the most exclusive neighborhoods in the country before turning inland to experience the back roads and rolling foothills by citrus and avocado orchards and some of the most challenging climbs in southern California, including the famous “Gibraltar Challenge”, a 7 mile time trial up Gibraltar Road with 3000ft of altitude gain and a mountain top finish.

Once you’ve conquered Gibraltar, the course takes you along the high ridge above the Santa Barbara coast, with expansive views of the coastline, the interior mountain range and the Channel Islands. The course tops out at La Cumbre Peak (elevation 4000ft) then continues along East Camino Cielo before an exhilarating descent down Painted Cave and Old San Marcos roads where you’ll transition to the flat lands of Goleta. The course then finishes with a gorgeous tour of exclusive Hope Ranch, then back to the finish line at Leadbetter Beach. There are 7 aid stations on the 100 mile route. With over 9,000 feet of total altitude gain and technical descents, this course is not for the beginner cyclist.

Many riders have asked for a course that includes the famous Gibraltar time trial but is less than 100 miles, so we’ve created the all new 100k + Gibraltar course just for you!
