SF Bay Area - Primavera Century - April 20, 2019

Primavera Century

Ride the best of California San Francisco Bay Area's scenic roads on the Primavera Century! Climb the challenging Calaveras Wall, then cycle the scenic route along Calaveras Reservoir. Ride past Livermore vineyards and wineries, and wind turbines of Altamont Pass. After lunch at a winery, it’s up and over the tree-shaded Palomares Road with a thrilling descent to Niles Canyon. Return to start for a hearty meal from one of several food trucks, included in your registration.

Last year we demonstrated our commitment to our riders by getting Calaveras Road opened just for the Primavera! This year we won't have this large hurdle as Calaveras is expected to open to all on January 1 (road is ready, now the public agencies just have to get their paperwork done).

Our 2019 ride will be on Saturday, April 20.

Four Beautiful Routes to choose from!

Century: 100 miles
85 mile Option
Metric Century: 100K ~63 miles
Fun Ride: 25 miles, mostly flat, 464′ ascent

Check out the Routes and Travelogue on our website for more info, with all detail at the link at the top of this post.

Registration opens on December 1, with prices increasing each month before the ride.

Registration for the Primavera is now open at Primavera Century. At $65 for registration during the month of December, this is one of the best values in the country for a fully supported century ride. Prices increase $5 every month, and the ride has sold out a month in advance during the past years so don't miss out if you want to join us on this ride.

Great question. You require two registration fees. Almost every cost (e.g. food, insurance, etc.) Is doubled and those that aren't are volunteer services from the local bike club, so there isn't a tandem discount. This is the same as most (all?) other centuries and charity rides.
