    Holstein 100

    Anyone ride this one? I'm thinking of signing myself and my daughter up for the 60 mile route. It's her first event, and it says it's only 2300 feet of climbing, so it looked like a nice gentle one to break her in. Thoughts?

    Cycle! It's Good for the Wattle; it's good for the can!

    I have done the 60 miler, it was a really nice ride! I was thinking of signing up for the 100 as prep for another one I am doing in September, not sure yet though!

    Oh Cool! Thanks! I think it would be a great first ride for her. I'm looking forward to this.

    I'm signed up for the 100k. I don't have elevation figures but if the course is the same as previous years I'm pretty sure there's more climbing that they state, like maybe 4000 total. It is a beautiful and fun ride.

    This is a great - well supported - ride. I will be on a road trip to a rock concert in LA with my kid so not doing it this year.

    Wasn't there a "wall" near the end of 100 mile? or am I thinking of some other ride. I did go up there for a ride. People were great, organizers were great, and for a great cause.

    Did manage to taste some locally produced cheese. oh the cheese was wonderful. I would go back just for that!!

    Maybe the Marshall wall? It's been a few years since I have done the ride so I don't remember the course well.

    We do have good cheese.

    Yep -- the Marshal Wall.

    Holstein is one of my favorites. If I attempted it right now you'd find me on the side of the road....




    Oooh -- I see the start has changed to Petaluma High. I wonder how the routes will change.
