This annual gathering of cycling enthusiasts brings together hundreds of people, moving on all manner of wheeled conveyance, to push their limits for the glory of raising funds for BORP.

Event Routes

REV cycling routes winding through wine country will be beautiful. We welcome riders of all abilities, with ride, roll or stroll route options for everyone–it’s not a REV without YOU!

In-person REV participants may choose from the following routes for their Santa Rosa REV ride:

Roll & Stroll on the trail:

Ride, roll or stroll up to 10-miles along the paved Santa Rosa Creek trail. Folks are encouraged to walk, roll, or stroll as far as they are comfortable, and turn-around at any point along the trail.

30-Miles Cycling Route: 

This gorgeous 28.3-mile route starts with 5 miles on the trail, then branches out for 20 miles through beautiful Santa Rosa, before heading to the trail and hotel for lunch and the Festival. View and download the route here.

40-Miles Cycling Route: 

This beautiful 41-mile route starts with 5-miles down the trail, then 30 miles through scenic winding Santa Rosa roads, and back to the trail, ending at the hotel for lunch and festivities. View and download the route here.

45-Miles Cycling Route: 

This 46.2-mile route is the same as the 40-Mile course, with a 5-mile loop add-on at the halfway point. This loop is harder than the rest of the route, so it’s not for everyone, but it may be perfect for you. View and download the route here.
