Update on 2016 Century Rides

Several century rides I listed in the December 13 post were uncertain at the time. Note that some fees have increased due to the end of early registration. Here are some updates:



9 Saturday. The Cinderella Classic and Challenge. Women and girls only. $58. Registration is currently open. Registration capped at 2,500 but is still open. Registration will end on March 27 regardless of whether the event is sold out (but it usually does). Note that Different Spokes’ Evil Step Sisters Ride, which usually is the same day as the Cinderalla, is one week earlier this year, on Saturday, April 2.

17 Sunday. Primavera Century. All sold out except for 25-mile Fun Ride. But the latter starts late enough that you could take BART to the start. $30.

23 Saturday. SLO Wildflower. $75. Not sold out yet but limit of 1,400 riders.

24 Sunday. Mt Hamilton Challenge. Still no details yet and time is running out. Hard to believe this Bay Area cycling institution won’t take place. Let’s hope they pull it together.

24 Sunday. Chico Velo Wildflower Century. $85. Registration is still open. Capped at 4,000 this year.

30 Saturday. Motherlode Century. $85. Online registration ends on 4/26.

30 Saturday. Tierra Bella. $65. Registration is still open. Capped at 2,000.



1 Sunday. Grizzly Peak Century. $60. Not sold out yet but just a few slots left.

7 Sunday. Wine Country Century. Sold out.

21 Saturday. Davis Double. Registration opens 3/1/16.

27-30 Weekend. Great Western Bicycle Rally. $72.50 until 3/1, then $87.50. Registration is still open.



5 Sunday. Sequoia Century. $70. Site indicates that 1,022 slots are still available. The Sequoia is a members-only event; registration includes membership in Western Wheelers Bicycle Club.

11 Saturday? Canyon Classic. Still no information up on their website.

18 Saturday. The Terrible Two. No information yet but registration opens 3/15/16.

18 Saturday Mile High 100. $75. This ride is taking place despite the devastating fire.

25 Saturday. DSSF Gay Pride Ride. Our very own Gay Pride ride before the big day!

25 Saturday. Alta Alpina Challenge. $100. Also known as “the other Death Ride.” Registration is open. Apparently no limit on the number of registrants.



9 Saturday. The Markleeville Death Ride. $125. Registration is still open so the limit of 3,000 has not yet been reached.

23 Saturday. Devil’s Slide Ride. $83. Registration is still open but fee goes up on March 31.

30 Saturday. Santa Cruz Mountain Challenge. $65. Registration fee goes up to $75 on June 30.



6 Saturday. Marin Century. $85. Fee includes one-year membership in Marin Cyclists.

14 Sunday. Tour D’Organics. $90. Fee goes up on May 1.

7 Sunday. Shasta Century. No information yet. According to granfondo.com, “The Mount Shasta Chamber of Commerce hopes to host the Mount Shasta Summit Century in 2016. Due to the stepping back of some veteran members of the organizing committee, arrangements are in flux.”

20 Saturday. Crater Lake Century. $75. The event date is tentative as they await approval from the NPS. Limit of 350 for the century and 50 for the metric. Fee includes your entrance fee to the national park.

21 Sunday. Tour of Napa. Registration opens on March 1. Limit of 2,000 and they will sell out.



10-17 Week. Cycle Oregon. $985. This event usually sells out very quickly but you can still register for it. Don’t delay if you’re interested.

17-18 Weekend. Unknown Coast Weekend. $75 (camping) or $100 (cabin). Registration will open 4/15/16. Another great Chico Velo ride.

24 Saturday. Lighthouse Century. $75. Registration opens May 29 and they do sell out. Limit of 1,400 riders.



1 Saturday. Levi’s Gran Fondo. $170. Registration is open for all routes except (of course) the two butchest “Panzer” rides.
