The Chileno Valley Cycling Classic will be held on September 26 as a fundraiser for the NorCal Mountain Bike High School League. Starting at Bauman Ranch in Petaluma, California, the ride features breathtaking scenery, gorgeous roads and challenging, but not overwhelming climbs near coastal Marin.

The ride will offer both recreational and competitive cyclists the opportunity to participate in a challenging and meticulously organized ride. There are three ride options of 40, 60 annd 100 miles.

After the ride, every rider who raises the minimum fundraising goal will enjoy a free massage, live music from the Green Strings Farm Band and a catered dinner in a relaxing garden setting - all part of the Chileno Valley Feast.

Top fundraisers will also win prizes like a Gary Fisher HiFi Pro mountain bike or a Gary Fisher Presidio cyclo-cross bike.
