July 20…The best one day point-to-point Road Race in SoCal!


We escape from the desert early, before it gets hot…starting at 2570 feet elevation…ride UPUPUP Nine Mile Canyon, then through three small valleys with three very different climbs (short and tough, short and easy, long and hard)…then twenty miles of mostly redwood and sequoia forest rollers to arrive at the southernmost pass through the Sierras…Sherman Pass, at 9200 feet elevation.

Prize list is $1000 total, and we will have space available for rides back to the Start after the race.  Naturally, space is limited, so if you have somebody coming with you, we appreciate any extra space you might have to help us get other racers back to the Start.
