The 2020 NorCal AIDS Cycle Route!
BEAUTIFUL route - New Experiences - Same Magic!
On May 14, 2020, ≈80 miles w/ 3200 feet of climbing. We’ll ride from Davis to Vallejo where cyclists will board a high speed ferry for transit to San Francisco. On two wheels again, travel along the Embarcadero and Marina to the Golden Gate Bridge. Up and over the bridge to a fantastic downhill run in to Sausalito. Then ride on through Mill Valley, Larkspur, Kentfield, Ross, San Anselmo and Fairfax, where we’ll settle in for the night at Camp Bothin.
On May 15, 2020, Epic ≈94 miles w/ 5200 feet of climbing, Classic ≈53 miles w/ 2500 feet of climbing. We’ll ride out of Camp Bothin toward Point Reyes and out toward Highway 1 along Tomales Bay to the town of Tomales. From there, you’ll have two options: (1) continuing riding out Highway 1 toward Jenner and the Russian River, returning inland via Monte Rio and Occidental or (2) heading inland toward Petaluma and Cotati and into Rohnert Park where both routes meet up for camp at SOMO Village.
On May 16, 2020, ≈79 miles w/ 1800 feet of climbing. Beginning from Rohnert Park, we’ll ride over to Sonoma Valley, through wine country on our way to Napa Valley. Along the way, we’ll enjoy our first rest stop at Robledo Family Winery, followed by lunch in Kennedy Park in Napa. Enjoy this combination of sometime busy roads and then quiet country vineyard lanes as we move through one of the premier wine growing regions in the world. After we leave Napa and move closer to home, we’ll have one more rest stop in Fairfield at Alan Witt Park, finishing at Jess Jones Vineyard in Dixon. This lovely family-owned property in Dixon is opening their event space for our unique event. Friends and Family will be invited to join us at camp where we’ll serve a great meal, enjoy some entertainment and wrap up the evening with a candlelight vigil. Guests are welcome to bring their own food or those that would like to enjoy the Cyclists & Crew Buffet Dinner can purchase meal tickets here; tickets must be purchased by 5pm on Monday, May 6th.
On May 17, 2020, ≈45 miles w/ 200 feet of climbing. It’s the final stretch to Sacramento for our closing ceremonies. Beginning from Dixon we head north to the town of Winters for a rest stop in Rotary Park. Locals to Sacramento will recognize this as a popular meeting point for group rides. From Winters, we head east through Davis with a quick stop at the Davis Fire Department, who have generously opened their doors to us. From Davis, we head to the ride finale at the The Barn in West Sacramento, the latest premier outdoor venue at the revitalized riverfront. We’ll celebrate together the accomplishment of both our 2019 ride and fifteen years of service to the community.
It’s going to be epic!
