2017 Sikad Route
The Sikad Fun Ride offers three routes: a 22-mile ride, a 44-mile, and a 62-mile (metric century) ride.
The course routes for the April 18, 2015 ride are currently being tweaked by our course committee due to some road constructions. We need to strike a balance between road safety, accessibility to rest stations, and continuity in the ride in finalizing these routes. As soon as the courses are finalized, we will let you know here and in our other social media. That said, we are providing last year's routes for reference. We do not anticipate deviating significantly from the 2014 routes, other than perhaps changing direction (clockwise to counter-clockwise) but that is all still being worked out.
The metric century is composed of 20 miles on the Santa Ana River Trail and 42 miles of surface streets that go towards the hills of Santiago Canyon and back. This ride is a great cardiovascular workout! The highest elevation is on the corner of Loma Ridge and Santiago Canyon, which is about 1500 feet. This route contains a series of sprawling hills with gradual ascents and downhill runs.
We are now planning our 2018 Bike route and are looking into having a new venue, date and routes. Please come back soon for new information.
