Why ride the Incarnation 100?
Not only does it benefit the homeless, it promises to be a great ride for all types of cyclists, from those that are avid to those that are more recreational!
- The 45 mile route is fairly flat, with only a 147 feet elevation change. We picked a course that avoids large, challenging hills while still featuring the best pastoral scenery of Sonoma County. The 45 mile route is perfect for cyclists that are more recreational, and is great for families to do together as well! There will be three rest stops along the way.
- The 100 KM route is identical to the 45 mile route, but adds in the fun challenge of the hidden gem adored by many local Sonoma County cyclists – Sweetwater Springs Road! At the end of Sweetwater Springs Road you will be happy to know that we’ll have another rest stop for you in Guerneville. Sweetwater Springs Road is indeed quite the challenge – check out the Routes tab on this website for the elevation map.
- The 100 mile route includes everything on the 100 KM route, plus heads up north to Healdsburg before going down to Sweetwater Springs Road. And later you’ll head out further west to Valley Ford by way of the Bohemian Highway. The 100 mile route is a grand tour of the best cycling in Sonoma County!
- And then there is the after party, featuring a gourmet meal and live music! We are grilling tri-tip and veggies. We’re also grilling organic, vegetarian-fed, antibiotic-free chicken from Petaluma Poultry. Lots of other food, local wine (including Preston Wine and Coppola wines) and beer (includingLagunitas IPA!) will be served while you enjoy live music from Steve Pile. Your friends and family will be able to join you, as meal tickets will be sold.
