CAF Cycling Challenge – Back to Back NorCal

Enjoy 3 days in California Wine Country

Date: August 26-28, 2016

Fundraising Minimum $4,800

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER 

Enjoy three days in California Wine Country. Indulge yourself in challenging rides, gourmet offerings and the camaraderie that only CAF offers. Start your journey right outside the city of San Francisco at historic Cavallo Point Lodge in the idyllic bayside town of Sausalito. You’ll soon leave the Golden Gate Bridge behind as you hug the coastline heading north past Oyster Farms and through quaint towns along the water’s edge.

The scenery changes as you turn inland, leaving the Pacific at your back and welcoming the vineyards, wine tasting rooms and luxury accommodations that await you. Settle in for two nights in the heart of California wine country at The Lodge at Sonoma Renaissance Resort & Spa, nestled in the heart of Sonoma just minutes from picturesque downtown Sonoma. The next two days will take you on the challenging climbs and descents that mark the terrain between the Sonoma and Napa Valleys. The higher you climb the greater the panoramic vistas of vine covered rolling landscape with views reaching all the way to the San Francisco Bay.

Each effort will be rewarded with exhilarating descents, miles of open road and ultimately the finest wines and cuisine the area has to offer. On this three-day cycling adventure you’ll have time to connect with your fellow riders as well as the inspiring challenged athletes sharing the journey with you. You’ll have time to enjoy the best of the region and the rewarding feeling that comes from your ride with CAF.

Your event registration includes:

  • Tope of the line event branded cycling apparel
  • 3 days of first class ride support and bike mechanics
  • One night at the historic Cavallo Point Lodge in Sausalito and 2-nights in the heart of Sonoma at The Lodge at Sonoma Renaissance
  • Daily breakfast, lunch, dinner, massage and more!
