Option #1 Skaggs! (road) - 96 miles, 9,325 ft.
Option #2 Super Skaggs! + Lake Sonoma Single Track option 96 miles 10,525
Skaggs! No other description needed. Or is there…Wait…let’s start at Lake Sonoma, add Sweetwater on our way to King Ridge, Tin Barn and finish via Skaggs to Lake Sonoma. Truly the most epic 100 miles in Sonoma County. If you’ve done King Ridge but not Skaggs this is a must. Nothing like heading north at King Ridge/Tin Barn junction to feel the tingles of epic adventure run up and down your spine. Remember, these are rides and not races! Be prepared. Pre ride when possible and be conservative in your efforts. The last 20 miles are the hardest and usually in full sun.
*This year we will have the option of finishing via Lake Sonoma single track for those looking for more adventure. Details to follow.
This ride will be a fun-(d) raiser for the Matt Wilson Memorial Scholarship at El Molino High School
Matt was a student from El Molino who passed away while riding his bike at the age of 23. After high school he blossomed, discovering himself and Sonoma County aboard his bike. Matt finished the Terrible Two 5 times and loved Skaggs. We have created a scholarship at El Molino to help students who have faced and overcome adversity. A portion of the proceeds will go to fund this scholarship. In addition to the event’s contribution we would love it if riders could pitch in or even raise funds. You can make a donation the day of the event or contact us for a mailing address. Tax deductible donations can be made out to El Molino High School. Thanks!
