Mad Marchness 2017

Mad Marchness 2017


It's back. Don't even know what happened last year but somehow we missed it. Not this year. Join us for the classic route from San Francisco to Santa Cruz. 90+ scenic miles including at least 3,000 feet of climbing - more if you tack on the Bonny Doon extra credit.

We'll ride to the Seabright Brewery in Santa Cruz for lunch and refreshment before jumping on the bus back to SF. Your bikes will also have a ride back.

Mad Marchness 2017
April 15th. 8am.
90+ miles.

Spots are limited and will sell out quickly. We can only take as many as we can bus back.


This ride is Rain or Shine. (Unless it's so bad that it'd be dangerous. Then we're staying in bed)

All sales are final.  No refunds once you purchase but you can trade with someone else - just let us know.

Please bring one bag with a change of clothes (to the start) so you don't have to wear your spandex (and gross everyone out) at the brewery and on the way home. There is always one person that forgets. Don't be that guy. We'll have that bag driven and waiting for you at the finish line. If you forget to bring a change a clothes we will all make fun of you - like if you ordered a gluten free scone. 

Remember, it's not a race but there will be 3 timed segments along the route:  a climb, a sprint and a GC segment. Prizes will be NOT be given for the winners of each segment. Social media it if you want some praise, cause we don't care.  Too harsh? #madmarch17

Starting point is Craftsman & Wolves (746 Valencia Street). We'll be leaving at 8am sharp but you must be there between 7:00am & 7:30am to get your directions and sign your waiver. No waiver. No ride. You also must wear your helmet, obviously.

We need some help during the day of the ride, so if you can't ride or your significant other wants to help, please email us at

What is the route? Same route as all the other years. We'll have a GPX file for you later.

Nobody cares if you get to the finish line first.  So, let's ride safe and be careful - especially riding out of the city.  

To get a prize, you will need to be at the brewery at the end and be smiling.  

The finish line is at Sea Bright Brewery which is at 519 Seabright Avenue in Santa Cruz Their number is 831.426.2739

Food and beverages will be provided.  Once everyone gets to the bar we'll begin handing out the prizes.

We'll depart from the brewery by 5:30pm(ish) on a comfy charter bus. Your precious little bike will be transported in a separate truck. The bus (with all the humans) and the truck (with your cute bike) will be dropped back in the city. Your bag with your disgusting sweaty kit will also be transported back to the city by you. You can carry it and be responsible for it.

Bring plenty of food and money if you wanna stop along the way.  Don't forget to stop at Swanton Berry Farm for a Strawberry Shortcake or two.  Hopefully we'll all be there together with a sugar high.

Again, by registering for the race you understand that there will be no refunds.  Sorry for being so mean about it but that's just the way it is.
