Wine Country Century


Explore The Three Route Options Below

If you've participated in the Wine Country Century in the past you'll recognize the routes offered as some of the best cycling available in Sonoma County. If you're new to the event, you're in for a treat! Each of the three options are shown below. You can view each one in great detail at RideWithGPS by clicking on each of the maps. Remember that these rides are not races but rather an opportunity to enjoy the scenic wine country back roads from the saddle of your bike.

Each of the routes are SAG supported if something unforeseen happens and you need a lift back the the LBC. There are also rest stops on every route where you can refill your water bottles, pickup a sandwich or snack, and rest for a little while among fellow cyclists. As always, we aim to make the 50th Wine Country Century event an unforgettable experience.

All rides start and finish at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts (LBC)

34 Mile/55km / 1200'

63 Miles/100 Km / 2600'

Expanding on the Scenic Route, our Metric Century will fill your senses with the sights and sounds of the Sonoma County wine roads, all the way up to the Warm Springs Dam rest stop where you can enjoy a quick bite or something more with sandwiches made to order and other tasty choices. You can then refill your water bottles and head back through Geyserville, JimTown, and Chalk Hill Road to the LBC after party. There are THREE fully stocked rest stops along the route.

100 Mile/161km / 4900'

Upon leaving the LBC you'll head west for a climb over Graton Road and then down the beautiful redwood lined Bohemian Highway. You'll pass through the Russian River towns of Monte Rio and Guerneville. Then it's back toward the southeast and turning north joining up with the Metric Century riders towards the Warm Springs Dam Rest Stop where you can grab a quick bite or something more with sandwiches made to order and lots of other tasty food choices.
