Early registration for the tenth Pedaling Paths to Independence may have closed, but you can still join the fun! Rider check-in will open at 8:30 a.m., February 24, 2018, at DeVinci’s Delicatessen and Catering-Linden. All riders must be on the road by 10:00 a.m. Fee for the metric century is $50.00; entry for the quarter century costs $45.00. Cash or check payable to Community Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired only, please—no credit cards.
A great ride on ANY bike–road, tandem, mountain, single speed, recumbent, Bike Friday, fixed gear, cruiser, high wheel, hybrid, unicycle–the metric (65 miles with 1,500 feet of elevation gain) and quarter (25 miles with 300 feet of elevation gain) century routes begin and end at DeVinci’s Delicatessen and Catering Linden (18847 East Front Street, Linden - MAP IT) and traverse the quiet rural roads of San Joaquin, Stanislaus, and Calaveras counties, through verdant pastures, orchards, and vineyards. Both routes are new this year. The metric century around mile 44 travels along a private road through the Rancho Linda Subdivision for one mile to avoid State Highway 26. Amiel Way is a little rough, but very rideable. The Amiel Way residents look forward to seeing everyone! Please respect their property. Do not litter or provoke the animals.
Riders may check in at DeVinci’s and ride any time between 8:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.; everyone must be on the course by 10:00 a.m. Fees ($50.00 for the metric century, $45.00 for the quarter century) include pastoral scenery, maps and route sheets created by RouteArrows.com, pre-ride technical support by Performance Bicycle Shop #55, radio communications provided by the Stockton-Delta Amateur Radio Club, and fully stocked rest stops. Of course, riders and guests will end the day with a scrumptious post ride meal catered by DeVinci’s Delicatessen and Catering–Linden and Fruit ‘n Yogurt Parfaits courtesy of Golden State Restaurant Group. Creative Sounds DJ and Sound Services will entertain at the finish and PhotoCrazy, Inc. will capture images of riders on the road, available for purchase HERE after the event. Remember the time you pass the camera—and smile! Be sure to bring a few extra dollars to purchase raffle tickets to win some very cool items donated by Anderson’s Mower and Bike, Cranked Naturals, MDW Sports, Stockton REI Store, David Radmore, Rivet Cycle Works, LLC, and more.
