Course Notice
We wanted to make sure all of you riders that are going up Mt. Charlie for the 100k route are aware that the road is quite rough once you are on Highland Way and Eureka Canyon.

Due to prior mudslides the road is closed to car traffic, which makes it nice for bicycles (no traffic), but the road is a rough surface. Please be aware when going in and out of sunlight that you watch the holes and bumps.

We had our group ride go out that way last weekend and they said it was no problem and beautiful. Since it is closed to car traffic, we will have SAG vehicles on both sides of the barricades.

Course Map
You can view the course map ahead of time at our Mt. Charlie page on our website.


Please bring your pledges with you to check-in. If you were unable to raise pledges, please plan on giving the $55. donation in lieu of pledges.

Directions To Skypark Park
From Santa Cruz: Take Hwy 17 north toward San Jose. Take Mt. Hermon Exit. Follow Mt. Hermon Road strait, go through 2 stoplights, and take the 2nd right into the shopping center (where the theatre sign is). Follow about 1/10 mile, and take a left on Bluebonnet Rd. The parking lot next to the dog park / skate park is up on the left about 100 yards, or so.

    Thanks for organizing the fun ride and post-ride event! Craig’s arrows were great once I knew what to look for, but a few more prominent signs at critical junctions wouldn’t hurt. It would be nice to change the 100k route to roads that are in better shape. I understand several riders fell and I hope they’re all right. A rider was hospitalized after falling on the downhill outside Corralitos last spring.

    Good job!
