the 43rd Annual Primavera!

Sunday, April 26, 2015


Thanks to all the  registrants, the Primavera Century has reached the 1,000 rider limit!

The Primavera Century covers some of East Bay’s most scenic roads.  The longer-distance routes ride past the historic Mission San Jose. Then to climb the challenging “Calaveras Wall”, and on to the scenic Calaveras Reservoir (part of past Amgen Tour of California Routes and home to Bald Eagles). Ride 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!
