Mt. Charlie Challenge – Sign up this Saturday April 23, then ride!

It isn’t too late to sign up for the Mt. Charlie Challenge Pledge Ride.  You can sign up the day of the ride for $100 and 100% of it goes to support district wide programs at Scotts Valley Unified School District. See our event page for more information on the ride itself.

New registration opens at 7:00am at the Scotts Valley Recreation Building in Skypark Park.  Come early, we expect a good crowd. To find registration go down Kings Village Road and turn left at Bluebonnet. 

We will have Scotts Valley Cycle Sport handling last minute bicycle maintenance.  Coffee and food will be available while the SVHS Drum Line, featuring Ryan Snell, Jasper Lee and Jared Clark, performs rousing percussion music 7:30 to 8:00 am in the Skypark parking lot.

After your 100k or 50k ride you can return to skypark to enjoy our family BBQ with two great bands:
De Golden Koi, comprised of Zeph Rhoads, Chris Horchler, Jasper Lee and Alex Johnson, performs 11 to 12 noon in Skypark’s BBQ area. The band performs covers of music by the Beatles, Earth, Wind & Fire, Radiohead and other rock bands.

New Paradigm, Mt. Charlie’s headliner (photo attached), performs from 12:30 to 2:30 in the BBQ area. The band is a veteran winner of SVHS’s Battle of the Bands, and plays both original Blues-based rock and funk, and covers of classic rock tunes, Jimi Hendrix and other popular artists.

The post-ride BBQ and concert are open to the community, and are free to riders who participate in the 100K or 50K ride. Tri-tip, chicken, vegeburgers, homemade cookies and other food will be served by SV Kiwanis.

We are having a fantastic Raffle Drawing, which we will hold at 2:00 and you don’t need to be present to win. We’ll be giving away a brand new cruiser bike from Scotts Valley Cycle Sport along with prizes listed below and more:
