SANTA CRUZ MOUNTAINS CHALLENGE
July 29—Santa Cruz, California

From the redwood forests to the Pacific Ocean, this legendary route in Santa Cruz is as beautiful as it is difficult. The 135-mile route includes 13,215 feet of climbing and descents that aren’t for the faint of heart. For less-experienced cyclists, shorter routes of 45, 75 and 101 miles are also options.

    Biggest point – look around your general location; there are epic rides everywhere!
