About the 2024 ride

The Sacramento Century Challenge is the region’s premier cycling event, with well over 1,150 riders annually. Presented by the Rotary Club of Sacramento, the 11th annual Challenge will benefit the Sacramento Children’s Home Crisis Nursery program, which protects kids from child abuse and neglect. The bike ride starts from Capitol Mall in downtown Sacramento and winds through the scenic Delta wine region to Isleton, then back to the Mall. There are four different routes: 100 mi., 63 mi., 36 mi., 16 mi. We also have a great Post-Ride Festival, with live music, delicious food and outstanding beer and wine vendors. Registration is Open! So, mark your calendar now. And if you’re interested in a sponsorship, don’t wait, get in touch with us now!
