A special Thank You goes out to Echo Valley Ranch for their generous support of our race this past weekend. They allowed us the use of the hay bales for free for the safety of participants. Echo Valley Ranch is a major sponsor of the Tevis Cup (100-mile horse endurance race) and they probably supply 90% of the local community with horse feed and supplies. It was an example of a truly considerate connection between our local horse and cycling community.

Echo Valley Ranch

This brand new bicycle race will be held in one of the most beautiful venues in Northern California – Sierra de Montserrat – featuring a completely closed course of vineyard-lined rolling hills and technical European-style roundabouts. Feast your eyes:
