The Rotary Club of Petaluma Sunrise invites you to join us for our annual Sonoma County Backroad Challenge.  Enjoy your choice of a challenging 36.52, 65.74 or 99.54-mile bike ride through beautiful Sonoma and Marin Counties. 

It has been said that the Backroad Challenge is the best way to spend a Saturday outside. It’s your chance to ride one of three epic Wine Country back road routes that will take your breath away and test your resolve. Get your buddies together, drag them over the Marshall Wall, draft behind them on Chileno Valley Road, wait until that perfect moment then swing out and beat them to that cold beer and BBQ at the Backroad Festival.….No one will be disappointed. Make this the year that you took the Backroad Challenge and let your legs determine that you’re worthy.
