About This Activity

The Hungry Buzzard Century (100 miles)

Training for Climb to Kaiser? This route will provide you with the challenge that you are looking for! Depart between 6:30 - 8:00 am. This year's route avoids the trip over Rocky Hill in favor of more climbing on the northern end of the course. After leaving Cutler Park you’ll make your way to Lemon Cove and then up the entire distance of Dry Creek Road followed by a very difficult climb up Whitaker Forest Rd into Hartland. As you enter the Eshom Valley you will enjoy the amazing panoramas throughout this section. Your next challenge be Hogback Road, where you’ll climb to beautiful forested Pinehurst for lunch, and then commence a well-earned descent down Hwy 245 and back to Cutler Park. This route features nearly 8000 feet of climbing, and is loaded with challenging climbs and fantastic vistas. There are 5 rest stops on this route.

The Mountain House Metric Century (65 miles)

Depart between 7:00 - 8:00 am. This year's route is revised, but is still a challenging mid-distance ride. Enjoy gentle terrain until things get vertical as you ascend Dry Creek. After the second rest stop, you will take on the steepest part of the course, a brief but steep climb to Mountain House, a local landmark, and then you'll start the long, sweeping descent down Hwy 245 and back to Cutler Park. This ride features great vistas and approximately 3500 feet of climbing with 3 rest stops.
