Davis Bike Club extends this invitation to ride and enjoy our premier late-season cycling event – Foxy’s Fall Century. Often described as the ideal first century ride, it offers challenges, distances, and scenery for riders of all levels. Always the 3rd Saturday in October.
We offer three rides:
The 100 mile Century ~3000 feet of climbing
This route has been revised to avoid Napa County and parts of Solano County impacted by fire. The revised route will include the picturesque, shady golden hills, oak knolls, and orchards of Pleasants Valley and Putah Creek Roads, and other safe roads in Solano and Yolo Counties. It also includes a climb up to Lake Berryessa, and an optional steep climb up Cantelow Road, offering great views of Pleasants Valley below. Links to the 100 mile routes on the RideWithGPS website are below:
Route no longer applicable: This well-marked route takes you through parts of Yolo, Solano, and Napa counties. Enjoy flat country roads through farmland and orchards of Yolo County, and the rolling hills, lakes and vineyards of Solano and Napa Counties. The moderately challenging climbs near Lake Berryessa will reward you with thrilling descents through the forested coastal mountains. Enjoy a well earned extended descent through the vineyards of Wooden Valley to your lunch stop. On your return leg, enjoy what has become a main attraction for cyclists throughout Northern California – the picturesque, shady golden hills, oak knolls, and orchards of Pleasants Valley and Putah Creek roads. Celebrate with fellow riders this classic Fall ride with a delicious catered dinner. Rest and lunch stops along the route will keep you riding strong throughout the day.
