Distances: 200 miles
Difficulty: Ultra Distance and Climbing for events well over 100 miles
Limited to: 500 Participants

The Davis Double is considered an ideal first double century. There is no "death", "terrible", "monster", "devil", or "heartbreak" in this ride. What really sets the Davis Double apart from other rides, for first-time as well as more experienced long-distance riders, is the level of support we give our riders. There are nine rest stops in addition to a lunch stop, and multiple SAG vehicles patrol the entire course. As for difficulty, there is about 9,500 feet of climbing with a few longer climbs. Nearly all of the climbing is under 10%, primarily in the 6-8% range, and the climbing ends well before Mile 150. There is also a four-mile section of hard-pack dirt road around Mile 100 in Big Canyon. The hard-pack section of the ride is a gradual climb with a few gentle rollers.

The ride starts at the Veterans Memorial Center (corner of 14th and B Streets in Davis). After leaving town, the first part of the ride runs through flat farmland in the Central Valley. The route then climbs over Lake Berryessa and runs north through the hills in east Napa County to Middletown and Lower Lake in Lake County for lunch. After a long climb up to Resurrection at the Lake/Yolo county border, the road descends through Cache Creek Canyon and Capay Valley back to the Central Valley farmland and the finish at the Veterans Memorial Center.

All riders should be on the course by 5:00am Saturday. The ride closes at 1:00am Sunday.
