What’s Included

When you ride the 100 Mile or 100K route with Gibraltar, you’re also automatically participating in our USFS ride, where you’ll enjoy some of the region’s epic Forest Service lands with natural setting and amazing views. The SB100’s USFS ride constitutes $40 of your total entry fee (don’t worry, we’re not charging extra) and ensures that we have a world-class ride and the premier charity cycling event in California!

Course Details

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!
