As this is the fourth year for this event, we've decided to make it even bigger and better!

1. We're adding a FULL CENTURY! So finish off your riding season with this challenging 100 miler!
2. To reflect the communities and the terrain we are covering in our routes, we've decided to add the subtitle to our ride - Tour de East Bay.
