Registration is now open for the 6th Annual Motherlode Century ride! The Motherlode is conveniently staged in the foothills of the  El Dorado County Gold Country, and offers four tours from 35 leisurely to 95 challenging miles.  Please see our Routes page for maps and descriptions.

The start/finish is located in the beautiful Coloma Valley just upstream of the gold discovery site that brought the 49’ers west.  Our host camp is American River Resort located in Coloma, CA on the South Fork of the American River.

This bike ride partners with Friends of El Dorado Trails, building a trail from South Lake Tahoe to Folsom, Susan G. Komen , meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer, and the American River Conservancy, ensuring healthy ecosystems within the Upper American and upper Cosumnes River Watersheds through land conservation, stewardship and education.
