We have something for everyone, from a half-metric century for beginners to our Hammerhead for the truly hard-core riders.
The OVC offers unrivaled support at our well-stocked rest stops, SAG support, a full lunch and a delicious, post-ride meal.
New this year, our ride central will be at the Topa Mountain Winery. This incredible facility is the perfect spot to base our ride.
