Santa Cruz Mountains Challenge: July 20
We're proud to be a sponsor of the 2019 Santa Cruz Mountains Challenge (SCMC), the main fundraiser for the Santa Cruz County Cycling Club (SCCCC).
SCCCC provides grants to local non-profits that support cycling and health, and is staffed entirely by members and other volunteers. This year, SCCCC celebrates the 20th year of its popular road cycling event that offers four distinct routes through the scenic Santa Cruz mountains and along the coast.
Route choices include: 44-mile / 2,914′ of climbing; 74-mile / 6,736′ of climbing; 102-mile / 10,301′ of climbing, or the crown jewel ride — a 127-miler with 12,551′ of lung busting climbing. Riders ascend through soaring redwoods, descend along scenic meadows, and pedal along roads on the Monterey Bay to the sound of crashing surf.
