With the kiddos back at their school desks and colorful scenery and crisp weather in full swing, you'd be nuts to let fall pass you by without getting in a good ride.
Take advantage of your last opportunity to pedal 60-plus miles this year with one of these metric century rides.
Share the Road Ride
October 5, 2019 in Simi Valley, California
Providing riders a fantastic combo of climbing, scenic vistas and long flats, the Share the Road Ride offers a near perfect 62 miles to end your cycling season. The ride, which includes several distances to choose from, also gives cyclists a chance to honor fellow riders who've lost their lives participating in the sport they love.
Wine and Roses Bike Ride
October 12, 2019 in Templeton, California
How does a nice Pinot Noir sound after spinning your pedals 60 miles? Well, that's exactly what you'll get when you complete the Wine and Roses Bike Ride, a ride that ventures into the most picturesque scenery of Cali's Central Coast.
Tour de Tugaloo
October 19, 2019 in Toccoa, Georgia
This moderately challenging ride, which winds along the Historic Tugaloo River Corridor, promises scenic views at every turn. And when you're riding 100 km through the southern base of the Appalachian Mountains, we have a tendency to believe them.
Kern Wheelman Spooktacular
October 26, 2019 in Bakersfield, California
Everything's eerie at the Kern Wheelman Spooktacular bike ride: the rest stops, the costumes, the bikes and the lack of traffic. The Halloween-themed metric century also promises some monstrous climbs, so come prepared for a frightening and exhausting day in the saddle.
Turkey Roll Bicycle Rally
November 23, 2019 in Denton, Texas
If you want to stretch that belly out before your epic Thanksgiving dinner the following week, we recommend this ride that offers all-you-can-eat Syracuse sausage at the finish. Of course, you'll have to bike 100 km to get there, but we think it's worth a day in the saddle.
