Registration opens December 1.
Thank You for making the 2014 Primavera Century a Huge Success!“Wonderful Primavera 2014 today. Thanks for great organization!” “Rode the 100mile. This is my fifth time riding the primavera and this year was the best. Great road markings. Great food. Lots of SAG presence. Got a flat at mile 95. Everyone that passed me offered assistance. I got it fixed in short order and headed for the food trucks. Great job!” “Rode the Primavera for the first time this year (2014). I’ve ridden a lot of centuries, and I have to say, this is the best-organized, best-staffed, best-supported (SAG & food choices) I have ever seen. My compliment to the organizing committee. Everyone was very friendly, helpful and encouraging.”
The Primavera Century covers some of East Bay’s most scenic roads. The longer-distance routes ride past the historic Mission San Jose to the scenic Calaveras Reservoir (part of past Amgen Tour of California Routes and home to Bald Eagles), along beautiful tree lined lanes, through vineyards, to the top of Altamont Pass, past wind turbines and through scenic canyons. The 25-mile Fun Ride goes through Coyote Hills Park with abundant wildlife.
All Primavera routes are fully supported with SAG, rest stops with mechanics and goodies, hot meal at the end of ride! Medals for kids on the Fun Ride! Proceeds from the ride fund Fremont Freewheelers Bicycle Club and the many non-profits that the club supports.
