Apple Blossom Bike Tour

A post-ride meal will be served and all participants will receive t-shirts and goody bags.

Apple Blossom Bike Tour

Metric Century
This ride will give you spectacular views. You'll make your way through some of El Dorado County's pristine vineyards before climbing into the woods.  Cruise to your car by way of Apple Hill®.  Don't be fooled!  This is not a typical metric century.  This ride will test your fitness with 7000+ feet of climbing.  

Metric Half-century
Pedal through 30 miles of the most beautiful scenery in Northern California.  This ride will reward you with spectacular views.  Enjoy winding country roads as you make your way through Apple Hill's® orchards.  The descent has sweeping views of the Sacramento Valley and passes through towering cedar trees.  The 3,500 feet of climbing will be worth it!

Family Route
Tour El Dorado County's bike trails.  Follow the old railroad bed as you head toward Apple Hill®.  Gain approximately 900 feet before returning to El Dorado Adventist School.  This is a family-friendly route so bring your kids! Recommended for riders ages 8 and up.
