Registration will close on May 24 at 6pm. 
If you miss this deadline, please email the ride leader

(Scot Castle, roadiescot@me.com) to make arrangements.

When you register, you will provide your email address and cell number.  In addition, you MUST provide an emergency contact, name and reachable cell number.

Please note that the official start time is 7:30 am. Riders who need extra time for this event are encouraged leave earlier than 7:30 am.

If you plan on leaving anytime before the official start, you must enter that on the registration form.

In order to defray the costs of SAG support for this event, we ask for a $10 donation per rider.  This is totally voluntary and will be collected at the start of the ride.

There is also the opportunity for you to have a drop bag taken to the lunch stop in Pt Arena. Just leave it with the ride leader before departure and it will be there when you arrive.

This is an extremely hilly and challenging ride, a good final tune-up for those training for the Terrible Two or just as a stand-alone epic ride. Major climbs (and descents) on Hwy 128, Mountain View Rd, Annapolis and Skaggs Springs.

Parking:  PLEASE park at the far end of the Visitor Center parking area, towards Skaggs Springs Rd.                                                                                                                                                                         

The BLB is on Facebook where you can check for updates and more.

The "Ridge Run" is a slightly different route that adds climbing but not miles. The map is below.

Unfortunately, there were a number of slides on Skaggs this winter due to our heavy rainfall, including one BIG slide near the end of this section.  The road surface in some spots is unpaved and is down to just one narrow lane. When you reach the biggest wash-out, which is only 25-50 yds in length, walk your bike. PLEASE comply with this requirement: we are working with the County on this and they feel there are rideability concerns with using this section of road.
