Terrible Two 2019Terrible Two – 15 June 2019
This is one of the toughest double centuries in the state and requires lots of good operating skills. We’ve got aid stations, a few NC slots, and SAGs available. While traffic consists of informational traffic, we do transmit rider number and times – you will get a lot of traffic handling experience. If you want to visit remote parts of Sonoma County, sag for the TT is one way to do it. TT starts at 0530 and finishes around 2300.

This year the cycling club has added a 200K ride for those that do not wish to take on the full course, so this may add aid stations. Also, the course through Napa county is changing due to road conditions in areas affected by the wildfires and is still in planning stages at this writing (01/20/19). Check the event website for more info and course routes.

Wine Country Tour de Cure

This is the first year SCRA is supporting this event. Event details are forthcoming. Below is information from the event website to give you an idea of what is going on. There are four courses which include bicycling, running and walking. There will be Net Control, SAGs and Rest Stations to man. Here is the information from the website:

Event Details

RIDE! RUN! WALK!

The Tour de Cure is all-new and is perfect for all abilities. Choose the course that best suits you, your coworkers and friends. Members of your team do not have to sign up for the same activity so building a team is easy.

All the routes will be fully supported with bike mechanics, volunteer route marshals, rest stops with food and water, cheering volunteers and more.

Many Roads. One Purpose.

Choose your distance and know that every mile helps make a difference. Whether you choose to ride your bike, run or walk all the roads we take lead to the same destination to fundraise for a cure.

Routes

Whether short or long, each route is fully supported with rest stops, SAG vehicles and more. This year, there are 4 cycling routes (100 miles, 63 miles, 30 miles, 12 miles), as well as a 5K Run/Walk. Please remember that all cycling participants must wear a helmet. If a minor is participating, the minor is also required to wear a helmet, if riding. Click the captions to display the routes.

  • 100 Miles – 4,919’ gain in elevation
    Not for the faint of heart or those who have not sufficiently trained is our new century route.  It entails nearly 5,000 of climbing as well as some roadways that have no shoulder and demand the utmost in caution and attention.  Still, for those who are ready for a challenge, the rewards are great.  They include a broad diversity of terrain that few places share – from the vineyards of Santa Rosa, Windsor and Healdsburg to the forested hills of Forestville and Occidental and the famed Bohemian Highway.  We head west to the coast through redwoods to the juncture of Hwy 116 and Hwy 1.  Take in views of Pacific waves along the coast while you head south with a tailwind to Bodega Bay.  We return inland along Bodega Hwy past rural grazing lands to the outskirts of Petaluma before returning on country backroads to Sonoma State.
  • 63 Miles – 2,737’ gain in elevation
    Our 63-mile route heads north from Sonoma State to the eastern outskirts of Santa Rosa past Sonoma County farmland and vineyards in Windsor and Healdsburg.  Our route then heads south along the western edge of the Santa Rosa plain taking in the rustic beauty of the rural communities of Forestville and Sebastopol with its apple orchards.  You’ll finish with a mix of farmland and townscape before the return to Sonoma State.
  • 30 Miles – 456’ gain in elevation
    The 30-mile route heads north out of SSU on Petaluma Hill Road where you’ll enjoy rural sights and view the picturesque foothills of Northern California’s famed wine country on the approach to Santa Rosa.   In the heart of Santa Rosa we turn west onto the paved, car-free Santa Rosa Bike Trail.  On the trail you’ll enjoy the serenity of Santa Rosa Creek with its riparian flora and fauna.  From the Trail we turn south to Sebastopol and southeast to Cotati where we pick up Petaluma Hill Road again for the return to Sonoma State.  (For comparison purposes, our 25-mile ride in the Napa Valley had 543’ in elevation gain.)
  • 12 Miles – 305’ gain in elevation
    Our 12-mile ride is ideal for first-time riders as well as families.  This out-and-back route takes riders north along scenic Petaluma Hill Road up to Santa Rosa before returning.  Riders will take East Cotati Avenue to return to the finish line on campus.  (For comparison purposes, our 10-mile ride in the Napa Valley was slightly flatter with only 274’ in elevation gain.)
