The Revolution Ride and Festival takes place in the one of the most beautiful cycling landscapes in the world – the Sonoma Wine Country! Participants choose to ride a distance along fully-supported S.A.G. (supplies and gear) routes that works for them. Afterwards, everyone gathers for a post-ride celebration at the beautiful Trentadue Winery.
The “Rev” is a fundraising event to support BORP’s programs for people with physical disabilities and their involvement in sports, fitness and recreation. All adult participants raise a minimum of $400 (youth under 18 raise $150) to support a truly great cause.
The Revolution is a magical day of gorgeous cycling, excellent food, and great company. As you enjoy the day alongside the athletes you’re supporting, you will see what ability is all about.
65 Mile (100K) Take the Geyser/ Pine Flat Challenge (EXTREMELY DIFFICULT): Earn your bragging rights by climbing and conquering the Geyser/Pine Flat course. This route begins with a gorgeous tour of the geysers, with climbs that promise to evoke a sense of awe. After you’ve tackled the geysers, this route introduces Pine Flat Road, one of the most beautiful and undisturbed rides we’ve found in Northern California. 65 Mile Geysers-Pine Flat Challenge Route Map
50 Mile: The Geyser Experience (EXTREMELY DIFFICULT): Here is the route for those distance riders who love to seek out new challenges and work for that hard-earned sense of accomplishment.We know you’ve been looking for an excuse to conquer the geysers, so this year we’ve devoted our two longest routes to getting you up on that summit. 50 Mile Geysers Experience Route Map
45 Mile: Tour of the Wine Country (MODERATE): Less difficult than the The Geyser Experience, but for those riders who want to cover some distance, the 45-mile Tour of the Wine Country is a fun, moderately challenging ride with fewer hills and great scenery. 45 Mile Tour of the Wine Country Route Map
20 Mile: The Vineyard Tour (MODERATE): Through flat valley lands and a few rolling hills, the 20 mile route passes oak woodlands, orchards, and Sonoma’s world-renowned wineries. A great ride for adaptive cyclists, families, and those riders who may not want to ride for too long. 20 Mile The Vineyard Tour Route Map
5k – 10 Mile: The Trentadue Vineyard Roll & Stroll (EASY): For kids, families, and people who don’t want to ride on roads, Trentadue has given us exclusive access to their vineyards. Follow graded dirt paths suitable for bikes, trikes, handcycles, strollers, and powerchairs. Choose a distance from 5k to 10 miles and ride as fast or as slow as you want, it’s up to you. Just keep your hands off the luscious grapes!
Virtual Rider: Even if you can’t make it to the Rev yourself you can help support all of BORP’s programs by being a Virtual Rider. With this option, you register as a rider, fundraise to assist our participants, and ‘ride in absentee’. In this way, you are able to fully support the Revolution and our programs, even if you cannot ride in person.
Following the ride, participants, supporters, volunteers and friends celebrate the day’s success at a Food & Music Festival at Geyserville’s Trentadue Winery.
The Revolution Festival begins at 1pm, and features gourmet food, fine wine, live music, and a brief event program beginning at 5pm and lasting approximately 30-45 minutes. A dedicated team of massage-therapists offer free massages all day for riders, festival-goers, and guests!
The Festival is a way to join in the celebration of the day’s success and another way to help support people with physical disabilities.
If you would like to attend ONLY the post-ride Festival (you will NOT be riding, strolling or rolling) you must register in advance as a Festival ONLY Attendee. Festival ONLY Registration is $100 and space is limited! Festival ONLY Attendees are not required to fundraise, but are strongly encouraged to do if they wish!
