Registration opens January 4, 2016
The Sequoia Century is one of the most challenging and beautiful rides in the San Francisco Bay area. Riders will travel through Stevens Canyon, past redwood forests and through small towns to the Pacific Ocean. After a ride along the coast, riders again pass through rural areas and forests before descending a challenging route back to the start. Total distances range from 70 to 120 miles, while climbs range from 6700 to 10,000 feet.
The 70-mile route starts in Los Altos Hills, climbs Redwood Gulch and Big Basin Way to Saratoga Gap, goes north on Skyline, descends Alpine Road to La Honda, continues to San Gregorio, climbs Tunitas Creek Road, descends Kings Mountain to Woodside, and returns to Los Altos Hills. Total climb is about 6,700 feet.

Awesome ride!!! Definitely doing this again next year and hopefully more years to come.
The rest stop are great. My only suggestion is that hopefully all the rest stop will have hot soup that will help a lot. Thank you. - Rasco
Great event, outstanding support that made a difficult route doable even for first time Sequoia Century rider like me. Highly recommended. See you next year! - Roland
This is a great Century ride - scenery, great food, beautiful roads and a nice amount of challenging climbing. The rest stop at the top of Tunitas - with a coke and a smile was great. Not to mention the post-ride food was excellent. - Carolyn
