A great ride on ANY bike–road, tandem, mountain, single speed, recumbent, fixed gear, cruiser, high wheel, hybrid, unicycle, Bike Friday–the metric (65 miles with 1,400 feet of elevation gain) and quarter (25 miles with 300 feet of elevation gain) century routes begin and end at DeVinci’s Delicatessen and Catering Linden (18847 East Front Street, Linden) and traverse the quiet rural roads of San Joaquin, Stanislaus, and Calaveras counties, through verdant pastures, orchards, and vineyards.

Riders may check in and ride any time between 8:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.; everyone must be on the course by 10:00 a.m. Fees paid prior to the event ($45.00 for the metric century, $40.00 for the quarter century) include pastoral scenery, maps and route sheets, pre-ride technical support by Performance Bicycle Shop #55, radio communications provided by the Stockton-Delta Amateur Radio Club, and fully stocked rest stops. Of course, riders and guests will end the day with a scrumptious post ride meal catered by DeVinci’s Delicatessen and Catering–Linden and entertainment by Creative Sounds DJ and Sound Services. PhotoCrazy will capture images of riders on the road, available for purchase at http://www.photocrazy.com after the event. And, be sure to bring a few extra dollars to purchase raffle tickets–$1.00 each or six for $5.00–to win some very cool items and bid on an HED LT Ardennes wheel set with Michelin Pro 4 tires and Campagnolo Z11 11-speed 11t-25t cassette.
