The Central Coast Double (CCD) Is a bicycle ride 210 miles and ~15,000 feet of climbing elevation. We’re an organization comprised of an all volunteer staff.
The CCD consist of two routes. A lowland and highland route. The lowland route is 197.2 miles at 12,600 ft of climbing.. The traditional route (highland) is 210 miles and ~15,000 ft of climbing. Both routes are credited toward the Triple Crown Event.
This year, the Central Coast Double Century has the honor to host a Stage Race Event. The CCD finishers of the Highland Route are to be credited for the Stage Race Event. The Lowland Route does not quailfy as a Stage Race Route.
This is one of the more difficult double centuries in the California Triple Crown Series. The Central Coast Double should not be your first attempt at riding 200+ miles, due to the nature and extent of the climbs, which become more difficult if it is a very hot day. In contrast, if you have completed events such as Climb to Kaiser, Terrible Two, Heartbreak, Devil Mountain or the Markleeville Death Ride (all passes) then this ride can be completed well within the time limit.
