We offer a 100-mile route (century), TWO 62-mile routes (metric century) -- one "lite" route and a challenge route, a 27-mile route, and a 12-mile route. We also have a short walk around the Yountville Veterans Home for any non-cyclists!
Every participant can count on support from start to finish with rest stops, SAG vehicles, and route monitors. Upon completing the tour, riders are welcomed back by cheering crowds and finish line festivities that include entertainment, a delicious BBQ lunch, and more.
