Santa Cruz Mountains Challenge

The Double Metric ride is the crown jewel of the SCMC. Route includes a loop through Big Basin Park with magnificent redwoods, twisty rollers and the best road surfaces in the county. With 127 miles (204 kilometers)  and 12,550′ of climbing, this route comes close to the Death Ride in elevation. More climbing bang for your buck at 98 Feet Per Mile (FPM)!

Riders should start by 7:00 am and clear the Lunch Stop by 1:00 pm, or return via the 100M route, as there will not be sufficient time to complete the 127M route.

Due to the amount of mileage and elevation gain, this course is only suitable for experienced cyclists with a very strong fitness foundation
