Welcome to the eleventh annual Ojai Vally Century Bike Ride. Ojai is a Shangri-la nestled below the stunning mountain views of the Los Padres National Forest. We are fortunate to have the mix of flat, coastal, mountains, beautiful country, and usually good weather all in one place.
We look forward to seeing you on the ride and see why the Amgen Tour of California selected this route four years: Stage #4 (2013) and Stage #6 (2006-2008).
Bicycling Magazine, with readership over 2 million, recommended our ride in their guide to best cycling (May 2009, page 28). In 2012 Active.com named our ride first in their write-up 10 Rides to Do Your Own Tour of California".
We are striving to make this a ride of choice for the area and solicit any feedback you may have so that we may continue to improve the event each year. We have received many accolades from the event riders. Each year our management team incorporates many improvements to the ride. The NEW 4 mile section of Highway 101 bike path construction is now complete!
If you have ridden the OVC before, bring 5 friends who have not, and we will refund the registration fee. You will need to register and pay as normal, but check the “Refund for Friends” box, and provide the names of the 5 friends. After we confirm that these friends have paid their registrations and have not ridden previously, the cost of your registration will be refunded by check mailed to you. This will occur within one month following the ride.
