About This Activity

The Hungry Buzzard Century (98 miles and 8200’ of climbing)

This is a challenging century with great scenery! The ride starts in Woodlake, and provides a few miles of flat riding to warm up for the first challenge of the day: Dry Creek Road. The route then climbs up to Pinehurst, continues to Dunlap, and then to Badger before the descent to Woodlake. The ride map will include an alternate 90 mile route that eliminates the flat road back to Woodlake, for those who are looking for a great ride that doesn’t quite measure up to a full century. Five rest stops.

The Mountain House Metric Century (63 miles and 5200’ of climbing)

This is a challenging metric with great scenery! The ride starts in Woodlake, and includes the same climb up Dry Creek and to Pinehurst that the century riders take on, but gets to the long, sweeping descent more quickly.   Three rest stops.

The Venice Hills 20 (20 miles and 450’ of climbing)

This is a great ride for new riders, or for folks who are looking for an easy ride through the orchards and rolling hills to the east of Woodlake. One rest stop
