2020 Bay Area Biking and Cycling Events

Tour of Napa Valley

Date: August 16, 2020 6:00-9:30 AM depending on route
Location: Calistoga, CA

Thank you for joining us in Calistoga. We loved the new venue at the Napa County Fairgrounds and plan to return in 2020. Please save the date for the 44th annual Tour of Napa Valley on Aug. 16, 2020. We are already making plans for the event and hope to bring back the BBQ and Carnitas.

Calistoga allows for 5 distances – a flat 35 miles all within the Napa Valley, a “hilly” 50 miles with moderate climbs, a 62.5 mile metric century, an 80-miler that includes all of the climbing but less flat riding and our iconic Century that mirrors the 80-miler but with more flat riding. We have Rest Stops every 25 miles stocked with tasty treats, including our home-made cookies! The three longer routes include a lunch stop hosted in Pope Valley. A delicious post-ride dinner is awaiting riders upon their return to Calistoga. Read more

Levi’s GranFondo

Date: October 3, 2020 8:00 AM
Location: Santa Rosa, CA

Levi’s GranFondo is both a challenging and competitive mass start cycling event hosting riders of all ability levels from around the world. It began in 2009 with the inaugural ride hosting 3,500 participants and is the brainchild of former professional cyclist Levi Leipheimer. Levi donates 100% of his time to the event that bears his name so that our community and the charities that benefit from your registration fees and fundraising can thrive. Read more
