Ride Santa Barbara 100 (RideSB100), the premier cycling event set on California’s Central Coast, will return to Leadbetter Beach for its 10th anniversary ride on October 231. Registration opens at www.ridesb100.com starting March 29 with a $99 opening discount good for 48 hours.
Called “One of 9 American Centuries to Master” by Outside magazine, RideSB100 delivers a scenic, challenging, fun cycling experience. The event starts and ends at Leadbetter Beach, where a beachfront expo will provide a setting for riders, friends and family to gather for food, beer gardens and sponsor booths over two days.
RideSB100 features four routes catering to riders of varying skill and experience levels including:
100-mile: An advanced ride featuring the Gibraltar Challenge, a grueling 3,000-foot climb in just 7 miles.
100-km + Gibraltar: For experienced riders who want to tackle the famous Gibraltar Challenge.
100-km: A challenging cycling experience featuring coastal and mountain roads.
34-mile: A fun and scenic course for casual riders and weekend warriors.
Additional categories for teams, tandems, e-Bikes (Classes 1 and 3) and virtual riders are also included for 2021.
“We’re bringing the Ride Santa Barbara 100 back better than ever for the 10th anniversary, and we can’t wait to welcome riders from all over the country to the amazing roads, views, and landmarks that have drawn cyclists to Santa Barbara for more than a decade,” said Jamie Monroe, RideSB100 race director.
Ride SB100 is again partnering with the Foodbank Santa Barbara County, after raising the equivalent of 60,000 meals for families in need during the 2020 virtual ride. This year, each 100-mile registration will include a donation equal to 100 meals, highlighted by this year’s slogan #100Miles100Meals.
