About This Activity

This is the best yet! Register for all of the California Girl Series Rides and Runs right here! With our CA Girl Series FASTPass, you'll have access to all FOUR rides we host or do a combo of Rides and Run (3 Rides 1 Run) for the 2015 California Girl Series season.

We started with our first event for women in 2007 - it was a bike ride called the Princess Promenade. The goal was to get women out of their cars and on to their bikes for fun, fitness and a fantastic weekend getaway with like-minded women. We added the Beach Babe Classic  & Beach Babe Half Marathon in Long Beach, Senorita Century in San Diego, Princess Challenge Ride & 10/5Mi Run, and the Women's Gran Fondo in Calistoga (Napa Valley). We now offer 4 cycling events and 2 running events under the California Girl Series banner. Yep, just for you.

The FASTPass registration guarantees your entry for each of the series events which you must enter to qualify for the CALIFORNIA GIRL SERIES MEDAL, awarded to those who complete the Senorita Century - San Diego, Beach Babe Classic - Long Beach, Women's Gran Fondo - Calistoga, and Princess Challenge - Folsom, CA. Or, you can subsitute the Beach Babe Half Marathon - Long Beach as one of your events in the series. Ride or run, the California Girl Series is geared for women! Join us for an amazing fitness journey with hundreds of active women like you.

Our events are lefted around giving women the power, experience, and motivation to take care of themselves first with heart healthy activities such as cycling, walking, running - whatever gets you moving. We believe good food, fresh air, and a community of supportive women goes a long way toward reducing risk of sedentary-related illness such as heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. 100% of Fundraising activities go to our partner non-profits to support women's health. We also support California Bike Coalition's effort to connect California cities with protecteed bike trails and bike lanes throughout the state. Please make a tax-deductible donation when you register.

Event details and schedule


Specific details for each event can be found at, but the basic party plan is this:

Travel to wine country on May 2 for the Women Gran Fondo in spa-soaked Calistoga. This ride will have women professional cyclists out to join the recreational riders and experience 70, 50, or 30 miles of luscious vineyards and rolling hills.

The season finale is the newly rebranded Princess Challenge Ride & 10/5mi Run on September 27 in Folsom, just east of Sacramento. The ride launches from Historic Sutter Street and goes into the Sierra Nevada foothills for a 70, 50, 30 or 12 mile cycling adventure. We will be riding part of the famed Tour of California couse through Auburn Canyon.

All of the rides include blingy finisher's medals, catered "chef stops" with delicious locally-sourced food, and a celebration at the finish unique to the California Girl experience.
