Incarnation 100 – A fundraising ride to benefit homeless services*
Saturday, June 9, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Incarnation 100 supports three vital Sonoma County homeless and low-income service programs founded by the Church of the Incarnation:
- The Living Room, providing day services for women and children including those who are homeless or escaping domestic violence.
- Sunday Open Table, serving a hot breakfast every Sunday morning for people living on the streets.
- St. Andrews Mission Food Program providing groceries and meals to people in the underserved Russian River Valley in Monte Rio.
The ride starts and finishes at the Church of the Incarnation in the heart of historic downtown Santa Rosa. Riders can choose one of four courses:
- A 30 mile route is a leisurely ride through the oak-studded farmland and rolling vineyards between Sebastopol and Santa Rosa. With minimal elevation gain and lots of shady trees, it is an ideal route for recreational cyclists.
- A 45 mile route which is fairly flat, passing through Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley and West Sonoma County with course highlights of Wohler Bridge, Martinelli Road, and
historic downtown Graton.
- A 100 km route that is almost identical to the 45-mile route but includes the hidden gem and challenge of Sweetwater Springs Road—a secret favorite of many Sonoma County cyclists—which skirts the entrance of Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve.
- A 100 mile route that is a challenging, grand tour of Dry Creek Valley, Russian River Valley, and West Sonoma County, in addition to Sweetwater Springs Road. Both avid and recreational cyclists are welcome to register for the event.
The Incarnation 100 entry fees are $65/30mile, $70/45mile, $80/100km, $90/100mile. Start times begin at 7 a.m. for the 100 mile route and continue on the half hour for the other routes. The courses have multiple rest stops. After finishing, riders and their guests are invited to a gourmet meal with live music. Discounts are available for group registrations of ten or more.
