100 mileThis year's 100 mi ride and 60 mile ride will be concurrent for the first 29 miles, at which point the 100 mile ride continues east. A challenging century features two climbs to 1,600 ft. and throws in some rolling hills to make a total ascent of 4,573 ft. The route takes you along some of the region's best wineries and vineyards, where lunch will be waiting at mile 72.6. You’ll exit Livermore and head towards Pleasanton and Sunol. Your last rest stop will be at the old railroad station in Sunol at mile 80.8 before returning to the start-finish location. This is a challenging century, filled with a variety of scenic climbs that take you around the far stretches of the beautiful East Bay.
A moderate, but challenging ride with 2,133 ft of climbing. From the starting location you’ll make your way eastward through the town of Danville, out into the country through the Tassajara Valley, and head towards Livermore. At the very north end of Livermore, the 60 mile route links up with the 100 route. The first rest stop is at the Leo R. Croce Elementary School at mile 23.2 in Livermore. You’ll be riding through some beautiful countryside alongside lush vineyards and the rolling golden California hills and farmland. Lunch will be waiting at the second rest stop at mile 40.7 at the Alden Lane Nursery. You’ll exit Livermore and travel through Pleasanton, and then heads towards start-finish. This is a challenging metric century with some good climbing and great scenic views of the East Bay.
