Welcome to the Santa Cruz Mountains Challenge! Our routes offer several Cat 1, 2 and 3 climbs. Famous climbs include Alba Rd, Zayante Rd and Bonny Doon Rd which has been part of the Amgen Tour of California. People from from all over the world come to see the sights you will see on these rides. As you follow stretches of Hwy 1, Skyline and Swanton roads you will see the rugged and beautiful California coast well as the entire Monterey Bay. Post ride you'll bask under the redwoods on UCSC campus and enjoy plenty of fresh local food.
