Registration Alert for Wine Country Century

Just a heads up, registration for Wine Country Century starts Feb 1st. This will sell out if you wait too long.

Any information on the how much climbing for this century? I'm debating on either doing this one or the Chico Wildflower the weekend before this one. Thanks.

5547 feet for the 200K. I got that from Bikely.com where the 200K route is posted. the century is several hundred feet less.

IMHO, 200k is worth the extra 20 miles to do.

That's not much climbing, definitely less than Chico.

Is it greedy to want to do both?

It's about 1100 feet less than Chico if you do the 100 miler. I've done both before - both are fun rides but Chico's gone downhill over the years IMO - but I haven't done the Wine Country in couple years - might have to do it this year.

Hi All
I'm planning on doing this ride for my first century , Can anyone tell me what is the parking like at the Wells Fargo Center as I will more than likely drive up from San Francisco on the day and the site says its limited parking
