The 50km route is a nice mild ride with no elevation gain, and will lead you through the wineries of Lodi and Woodbridge while everything is in bloom. This route can easily accomodate new to the sport cyclists and seasoned veterans alike.
The 100km route takes you through the Lodi wine country, and first heads West through gently rolling terrain to Stillman McGee Park and the historic town of Clements. It then turns back East and leads riders through the town of Woodbridge and north to Thornton before heading back to Lange Twins Winery.
