Tour de Rocklin October 13th



The 4th Annual Tour de Rocklin takes place this Saturday October 13, 2012.

The 4th Annual Tour de Rocklin offers riders a wonderful opportunity to get out and enjoy a day of Fall cycling while supporting an excellent cause. The event benefits the Alyboo & Izybee Foundation, who help babies that are in the Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) and their families. The weather forecast calls for a cool, overcast morning followed by highs in the upper 70's with plenty of sunshine.

The Tour de Rocklin starts and finishes at the Sierra Meadows Plaza shopping center at 4800 Granite Drive in Rocklin.

The Tour de Rocklin has a rolling window of check-in times based on the route you have selected to ride. The goal is to have everyone back around mid-day for the BBQ lunch. The 100K ride has check-in from 7:00am - 8:30am. The 20 mile ride from 9:00am - 10:00am. The Family Ride from 10:00am- 11:00am. Riders may depart once they have checked in, signed their waiver form, and received their ride wristband (required for rest stops and support).

How Much Does it Cost?
The Tour de Rocklin has three routes, each with a different price. The Family Ride (5 or 2 miles) costs $10. The 20 mile route costs $25. The 100K route costs $40. These prices are valid through October 6, 2012. After that date, all fees rise by $5. The rider fee includes route sheets, fully stocked rest stops, SAG support and a catered BBQ lunch at the finish. Non-riders may purchase a lunch for $8.
