Registration will close on May 23rd
If you miss this deadline, please email the ride leader

(Scot Castle, roadiescot@me.com) to make arrangements.

When you register, you will provide your email address and cell number.  In addition, you MUST provide an emergency contact, name and reachable cell number.

Please note that the official start time is 7:00 am. Riders who need extra time for this event are encouraged to leave earlier than 7:00 am. If you plan on leaving anytime before the official start, you must enter that on the registration form.

In order to defray the costs of SAG support for this event, we ask for a $10 donation per rider.  This is totally voluntary and will be collected at the start of the ride.

We do not supply lunch but you have the opportunity to send a drop bag with your lunch or other items   to the lunch stop in Pt. Arena. Just leave it with the ride leader before departure and it will be there when you arrive.

This is an extremely hilly and challenging ride, a good final tune-up for those training for the Terrible Two or just as a stand-alone epic ride. Major climbs (and descents) on Hwy 128, Mountain View Rd, Annapolis and Skaggs Springs. 

   Parking:  PLEASE park at the far end of the Visitor Center parking area, towards Skaggs Springs Rd.                                                                                                                                                                         

    The BLB is on Facebook where you can check for updates and more.

*Hors catégorie (HC) is a French term used in stage bicycle races to designate a climb that is "beyond categorization." The term was originally used for those mountain roads where cars were not expected to be able to pass. The HC climb is the most difficult type of climb.
