Bass Lake Powerhouse Double Century

October 10 2020
Clovis, California USA

For over a quarter of a century, the Fresno Cycling Club has been noted for providing to bicyclists the “Climb to Kaiser”, an event heralded as “one of the most difficult rides in America” by Bicycling Magazine. The Fresno Cycling Club extends its tradition of quality rides by offering you the opportunity of participating in its 16th Annual Bass Lake Powerhouse Double Century, which is considered as the "Best Supported Ride" among the double century events

We heartily thank those participants and many volunteers who have joined us in years past. The splendid beauty of the western Sierra Nevada mountain range beckons all serious bicyclists from around the country.
