The ride starts at the University of California Santa Cruz at the break of dawn. The ride offers friendly volunteers, great support, homemade baked goods at rest stops and a big spread at the lunch stop. All with absolutely fabulous scenery while doing some of the most challenging climbs in the mountains of Santa Cruz. After the ride, all participants get to enjoy the famous all-you-can-eat burrito (build your own), salad and ice cream post-ride meal. Ride options: 45, 75, 101 & 135 miles.
