Starts at Howarth Park

For the fifth year in a row, this challenging century ride marks the beginning of Daylight Saving time with several big climbs and plenty of miles in between. Just a few miles from the start, we face a long climb up St Helena Road, the tallest hill of the day. Howell Mountain runs a close second and delivers us to Pope Valley at Mile 30, where we'll make a brief stop to top off water bottles. We then head east to the shores of Lake Berryessa for beautiful views and (more than) a few rollers. We'll coast along smooth pavement on Hwy 128 back to Silverado Trail and Yountville, where we'll have our lunch stop at Mile 70). Legs will be weary by the time we reach the gradual yet steady climb up Dry Creek Road before the final assault on Trinity's peak. After that big hill, we'll be looking forward to the final regroup at Mary's Pizza Shack, located across the street from Howarth Park.

This ride travels to remote areas with few opportunities to shortcut the route. Riders should come prepared with enough pocket food to travel 30-40 miles at a stretch, cash for the lunch stop, bikes in good working order, supplies for fixing flats, a route slip or good knowledge of area roads, and a cell phone. Please don't hesitate to contact the ride leader before the ride with any questions.
