THE EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. PLEASE STAND BY FOR MORE DETAILS SHORTLY.
Ride 200 miles in one day through Yolo, Napa, and Lake counties on the most popular and one of the best supported double centuries in California. Always the 3rd Saturday in May. There will be RFID Tracking with some personal challenge sections. The RFID Tracking will allow event organizers to know how EACH rider is progressing and the general whereabout of each rider.
The Davis Double is the most popular double century in California. It is considered an ideal first double century. There is no “death”, “terrible”, “monster”, “devil”, or “heartbreak” in this ride. What really sets the Davis Double apart from other rides, for first-timers as well as more experienced long-distance riders, is the level of support we give our riders. There are nine rest stops in addition to a lunch stop, and multiple SAG vehicles patrol the entire course. As for difficulty, there is about 8,400 feet of climbing with a few longer climbs. Nearly all of the climbing is under 10%, primarily in the 6-8% range, and the climbing ends well before Mile 150. There is also a four-mile section of hard-pack dirt road around Mile 100 in Big Canyon. The hard-pack section of the ride is a gradual climb with a few gentle rollers.
We hold the ride every year on the third Saturday in May. Registration opens on or before Februay 15. The 51st Davis Double Century will be held on Saturday, May 16, 2020.
