Come ride amidst the most beautiful farmland in America during the spring almond blossom bloom in the breadbasket of California's central valley. At the same time, you will be supporting music throughout the West for children, seniors and the mentally handicapped. All riders welcome.

Meet under the arch, 206 S. Stockton Street in downtown Ripon, California (65 miles south of Sacramento on Highway 99) on Saturday February 16, 2019 for the most beautiful bike ride in North America. Compete against your own best.
Proceeds to benefit Music First of San Joaquin Valley. The course is made up of flat, paved streets and country roads. The full metric course crosses the central valley's three major rivers: the San Joaquin, the Tuolumne and the Stanislaus. It pauses mid-ride riverside at Laird County Park in Grayson then on the beautiful San Joaquin National Wildlife Refuge, a brief detour to the Durham Ferry State Recreation Area and then home for a close encounter with lush Caswell State Park in Ripon.  All entries include fully-stocked aid stations, bicycle mechanics, pre-ride continental breakfast and a commemorative medallion.
