2022 Santa Cruz Mountains Challenge, Saturday, July 23

The Santa Cruz Mountains Challenge road cycling ride returns to the University of California Santa Cruz campus for the 22nd iteration of the event.

This will be a fully supported ride, similar to pre-COVID-19. We will abide by all mandated safety norms to ensure the safety of our riders and the community.

The ride routes are still a work in progress due to the effects of the CZU fires from 2019. We plan to offer the usual four courses:

  • 45 Miles with about 3,000 feet of climbing.
  • Metric Century (roughly 62 miles) with 7,000 feet of climbing.
  • Century (100 miles) with about 10,000 feet of climbing.
  • Double Metric Century (roughly 135 miles) with 13,000 feet of climbing.

Registration Opens February 1
