Join us Saturday September 2, 2017 and help raise $50,000 by riding through the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains and along the coast.

We start at Daybreak Camp with breakfast and begin our ride through some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. We have 50 mile, 30 mile or 20 mile (actual 23 mile) routes planned so you can choose your own challenge.
