This ride goes from Winters to Vacaville through the English Hills. Last spring I revised the beginning so that we might see some almond trees in blossom. Turns out it was a nicer way to get to Allendale Rd than along Winters Rd. However, it added a few miles so now the short route which stays on the rollers in the English Hills is 36 miles with 1060 ft climbing (https://ridewithgps.com/routes/38344197). The long route is now 44 miles with 2200 ft climbing (https://ridewithgps.com/routes/38344202). The routes are the same except for climbs up the east and west sides of Cantelow Rd.

My actual birthday is December 30th but weather and schedule issues have caused the ride to be rescheduled to this date, March 16th. Route sheets will be provided.

The Davis Double is considered an ideal first double century. There is no "death", "terrible", "monster", "devil", or "heartbreak" in this ride. What really sets the Davis Double apart from other rides, for first-time as well as more experienced long-distance riders, is the level of support we give our riders. There are nine rest stops in addition to a lunch stop, and multiple SAG vehicles patrol the entire course. As for difficulty, there is about 8,000 feet of climbing with a few longer climbs. Nearly all of the climbing is under 10%, primarily in the 6-8% range, and the climbing ends well before Mile 150. There is also a four-mile section of hard-pack dirt road around Mile 100 in Big Canyon. The hard-pack section of the ride is a gradual climb with a few gentle rollers.
All riders must be on the course by 5:15am Saturday. The ride closes at 1:00am Sunday.
