A great ride on ANY bike–road, tandem, mountain, single speed, recumbent, fixed gear, cruiser, high wheel, hybrid, unicycle, Bike Friday–the metric (65 miles with 1,300 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) and traverse the quiet rural roads of San Joaquin, Stanislaus, and Calaveras counties, through verdant pastures, orchards, and vineyards. (The metric century includes a portion of Stage Three of the 2011 Tour of California.) Fees ($40.00 for the metric century, $35.00 for the quarter century) include pastoral scenery, maps and route sheets, pre-ride technical support from Lodi Bicycle Shoppe, radio communications provided by the Stockton-Delta Amateur Radio Club, fully stocked rest stops with those famous Betty Crocker™ Brownies courtesy of General Mills, Inc. Lodi Plant, and Gatorade (metric route only) supplied by Farmington Circle K. Of course, riders and guests will end the day with a scrumptious post ride meal catered by DeVinci’s Delicatessen and Catering–Linden and entertainment by Creative Sounds DJ and Sound Services. Photocrazy will capture images of riders on the road, available free after the event. And, be sure to bring a few extra dollars to purchase raffle tickets–$1.00 each or six for $5.00–to win some very cool items donated by Angelo Flores, Road ID, Williams Cycling, and more!
