The 40th Cinderella Classic & Challenge

Saturday, April 9, 2016 - 7:00am Alameda County Fairgrounds, Pleasanton, CA

The Valley Spokesmen Bicycle Club proudly presents the 40th Cinderella Classic ® & Challenge

Cinderella Classic Route

This unique bicycle tour for women of all ages and abilities winds through Amador, Livermore, Diablo, and San Ramon Valleys. The Classic route is a metric century (65 miles/105k) and is mostly flat with a few moderate hills. From the start at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, the ride circles south through Pleasanton, out through the vineyards of Livermore, then north and along the base of beautiful Mt. Diablo to Danville, where it turns south and winds back to the Fairgrounds in Pleasanton. Charming Princes will be at three rest/food stops along the way, with a cold lunch at the second. Our SAG service patrols the entire route to provide rider assistance if required. A Cinderella Classic ride patch is awarded to every rider. Leave your Prince Charming at home and enjoy a special day!

The Cinderella Challenge

The Challenge route is for experienced and extra-conditioned riders only. It includes an additional 20 miles and almost 2,000 feet of climbing. At mile 25 you turn east and climb Patterson Pass, then enjoy a six-mile steep rapid descent into the valley. Making a loop, you return via Midway, Altamont Pass, Carroll, North Flynn and the great descent of South Flynn, after which you rejoin the Classic route ten miles before the lunch stop. Riders will be monitored onto the route and given a Challenge route sheet. There will be a water/refreshment/Challenge award stop at Midway and Grant Line.
