The San Luis Obispo Bicycle Club invites you to join us for the Wildflower Century as it returns to the last weekend of April. We offer five routes on rural roads through vineyards, ranches, and oak woodlands. Register early to ensure your place in this classic ride.
All routes except the 52 begin by climbing up Highway 41 followed by two fantastic downhill runs on the way to Shandon. After Shandon there are 7 miles of rough pacement out Shell Creek Road that we refer to as our cobble stone section. The remaining section of Shell Creek is smooth and includes the 1 mile sprint challenge and ends with a spectacular display of flowers if mother nature is kind to us.
All routes except the 45 end with a 1.6 mile climb up Highway 229 that is the hill climb challenge (KOM) followed by a four mile descent along a shaded road and ending with a flat three mile run by vineyards and ranches into Creston and the post-ride BBQ.
