September 10, 2017      Motherlode Century Fall Classic

Rolling through ranch, forest, farms, and vineyards the 6th Annual Motherlode Century fulfills what avid cyclists search for.  The 35 mile (2,824’ of climbing) loop provides a sampling of all the good elements of riding in the Gold Country, while the 66 mile (6,430′ gain), 82 mile, and 95 mile (9,177′ gain) routes add a remote canyon with two rewarding climbs and awe inspiring scenery. Attentive SAG support ensures riders a comfortable experience, and everyone will enjoy well stocked aid stations, a big lunch (66 – 95 mile riders), and a delicious riverside dinner welcomes you at the finish.  Post ride soak in the cool river, hot showers, massage, craft beers and local wines.

 This ride helps support the Friends of El Dorado Trails, building trails throughout the County.                                  

Our host venue American River Resort offers $10 camping, tent cabins, RV spaces and cabins to serve all your lodging needs; or try some of the other hotel and B&B’s.  Other valley attractions include rafting, hiking in the State Park, and more wineries and breweries than you can visit in a weekend.
