    Good ride, well organized, I was impressed they used a driver at the start of this event to help riders get through downtown Santa Rosa by tripping the traffic lights. Rest stops were good, people very friendly and supportive. Nice scenery. Only downside is the road conditions are pretty terrible. Some short gravel sections on Geyser road and very rough pavement for a lot of the ride, use good puncture resistant tires, 28s would be nice.
    Alot of fairly steep and sustained climbing with rough roads makes this a challenging double, but well worth the effort.
    Coast road section is fantastic

    This was my 15th double century in California and definitely one of the most challenging. SRCC is top notch and the staff, food, RFID timing, and support was fantastic. The ride in and of itself is pretty brutal. Lots of exposed climbing with gorgeous scenery on roads both good and bad. Some roads are pristine, while others have gravel bits and bumps. If you are in the ultra scene, this is a must do, a classic in the area. Just don’t forget your small gears up Rancheria and Ft. Ross road!

    First time doing this event. So far I have done two previous double centuries (Davis double and Mt Diablo), this one had the best scenery so far. The roads can get pretty bumpy between Lake Sonoma and Stewarts Point (about 45 miles), but the staff can’t really do anything about it. Besides the 14 miles stretch on HWY 1, there is very little traffic–which is awesome! Compare to other events, this event had the poorest selection of Food. I also believe that the Terrible Two shirts should be giving to all the riders that finish the event–shirts are only given to those who finish before 10 pm. Weather was great for being summer season (2018): average 65-70 degrees, low of 55, and high of 80. Overall it’s a good event!

    Road the 200k version. Other than the weather which no one can control it was a great ride, temps in the high 90’s over Skaggs Spring! Very challenging, well supported. Beautiful area of the county. Met lots of friendly riders! Would do it again as long as the weather was cooler!

    The ride begins and ends at Analy High School in Sebastopol. It heads west and south from town through the hills and down into the rolling dairy lands around Bloomfield and Two Rock. The route is out into the country in about two miles, with the first substantial climbing challenge beginning at mile 3: up and over the stair-step climbs of Burnside Road and down the south side of the ridge to the hamlet of Bloomfield.

    Once that long descent peters out, the course enters a section of nearly 20 miles of mostly flat and rolling terrain—with only one moderate climb—heading south to Two Rock, then east across the llano of the Laguna de Santa Rosa to the next big climb.

    The next big climbing challenge is two-summit Pressley Road. Over the top of the second summit, the route rolls downhill for two miles to the six-mile moderate climb and smooth, fast descent along Bennett Valley Road. A water stop will be located near the Sonoma Mountain Road-Bennett Valley Road junction, around mile 34.

    A few miles of lumpy rollers and one modest climb on Lawndale Road follow. All these miles are on quiet roads through pretty woods in the foothills at the north end of the Valley of the Moon. That brings the route to a fast run west toward Santa Rosa on the smooth, wide shoulder of Hwy 12. Although the highway is fairly busy, the shoulders are huge—usually more than eight feet—so the traffic should be only a minor irritant.
