One of the most popular rides in the Sierra Nevada Foothills returns in-person with three new rides through Calaveras County Up-Country and the Foothills.

Stunning scenery, challenging hill climbs and exhilarating downhill sections make this ride special. Plus, many sections are newly paved, so you’ll experience smooth cycling. You'll get SAG support from local bike shops, rest stops with snacks along the way, and traffic controls.

At the end of the race, you'll be treated to an after-ride party with delicious BBQ, live music, and local wine and beer for purchase.
