SF Bay Area - Primavera Century - April 22, 2018

Primavera Century

Ride the best of California San Francisco Bay Area's scenic roads on the Primavera Century! Climb the challenging Calaveras Wall, then cycle the scenic route along Calaveras Reservoir. Ride past Livermore vineyards and wineries, and wind turbines of Altamont Pass. After lunch at a winery, it’s up and over the tree-shaded Palomares Road with a thrilling descent to Niles Canyon. Return to start for a hearty meal.

The 25-mile Fun Ride ride through scenic Coyote Hills Park with lots of colorful wildlife and scenery.

Four Beautiful Routes to choose from!

Century: 100 miles
85 mile Option: 86 miles
Metric Century: 100K, 63 miles
Fun Ride: 25 miles, mostly flat, 464′ ascent

Check out the Routes and Travelogue for more info, with all detail at the link at the top of this post.

Distance rides are already 65% sold.

Registration is open, and prices go up after tomorrow. We have a $5/person team discount for teams (see website FAQ for details). This ride has sold out early each of the last several years, so get your registration in soon if you want to ride the Primavera.

It seems to be closed until Sept. 30, 2018.


"The Closure of Calaveras Road to thru traffic between Milpitas and Sunol has been extended to September 30, 2018.
The road had also been closed on weekends and holidays because of a land slide that undermined the road within the closure section. We anticipate the road to reopen for weekend use sometime in 2018. Please keep checking back for schedule details.
This is due to storm damage along this stretch of road. Under normal conditions and the construction schedule, Calaveras Road would be open to thru traffic on weekends and holidays. However, this is no longer the case, and the road will remain closed every day to all traffic until further notice.
Please avoid this area and use alternative routes."

Note the line "We anticipate the road to reopen for weekend use sometime in 2018."

We are in contact with SFWD and are optimistic that the road will be open weekends in the next couple of months. Repairs have been made, but the reroute was off of the county right-of-way and paperwork must be completed. SFWD will continue to use the road weekdays through September 2018. As we receive more information, we will share it on our Primavera email list, Facebook page, and all of the forum communities we have posted this in.

Thanks!
