The Santa Rosa Cycling Club welcomes you to Sonoma Country for a beautiful springtime century. Our Club members are eager to host you for an enjoyable day of cycling.
Sonoma County is famous for its scenic backroad cycling, and this event shows you why. In addition to passing by many of the region's premier vineyards, the route winds through redwoods, apple orchards, and shady broadleaf forest. It meanders across meadows sprinkled with wildflowers and climbs over hillsides dotted with eucalyptus, bay, and oak. This is considered a moderately easy century...a good choice for those attempting their first 100-miler. It is not all flat though, and by the time the finish rolls around, even seasoned riders will feel they've earned their after-ride barbecue. The largest portion of revenues from the entry fees goes to staging the event... paying for food and supplies, site use fees, portables, rental trucks, equipment & storage, insurance, medical services, public safety, etc. A major portion of proceeds are donated in support of local, state, and national cycling advocacy groups.

Release of Liability . Safety First
A properly fitting, US CPSC-approved helmet is required at all times during the ride. It is your responsibility to bring a bicycle that is in safe working condition. Carry a pump (compatible with your valves), a minimum of one water bottle (we suggest two), a tire patch kit, and a properly sized spare tube.
Always carry ID and emergency phone numbers for yourself. It makes good sense to also list your medical insurance carrier and your blood type.
Sharing the Road
Sonoma County's back roads are very popular with cyclists. You may only visit here once or twice a year, but the residents along our route have cyclists--in large groups and small--passing their homes and farms and wineries every day. You can help us preserve friendly relations with our neighbors by being a good ambassador for cycling when you ride here. Our use of this route in the future may depend on your good cycling behavior now. Thank you for your cooperation! This is not a race! Obey all traffic laws. Ride single-file as much as possible. Stop and pull off the road for all emergency vehicles. If you must ride double at times, be vigilant for overtaking vehicles (including faster cyclists) and single up promptly. Please be courteous and friendly with all motorists and residents that you encounter. They are our neighbors. Food & Services
