Our 300k brevet is an out-and-back from Davis to (almost) the summit of Cobb Mountain in Lake County.
The route begins from the Mace Park and Ride on the east side of Davis and rolls along the flat farm roads of Yolo County as a warmup. There is some moderate climbing up to Monticello Dam and over Cardiac into the Capell Valley. From there you climb over Priest Grade into Chiles and Pope Valleys. You'll then ride through Butts Canyon and Guenoc to Middletown and finish the outbound leg with a challenging climb up to Cobb Mountain Middle School.
This brevet has close to 9,500' of climbing.
Controls will be staffed by friendly DBC volunteers. Snacks and rehydration beverages will be provided. Services en route are limited; plan accordingly.
