Registration: November 1—March 17

Ride Date: March 20

Please join us on March 20, 2022 for Ride & Walk4Art in the beautiful California foothills in West Calaveras County. This event is presented by the Calaveras County Arts Council and managed by the Motherlode Bicycle Coalition.

Choose from 3 bicycle rides—30-miles, 45-miles or 100-miles. (For detailed information on each ride, please go to the website: www.rideandwalk4Art.com)

We're expecting no more than 300 participants, making this an intimate ride with a community vibe. You'll traverse rolling California foothills along roads that rarely see cars, past scenic views of oak forests and pastoral meadows and the blue waters of three reservoirs.

Note: The Ride Start Location has changed in 2022

All Ride4Art rides begin at the Jenny Lind Veterans Memorial in Valley Springs.  

The 30-mile bike ride takes cyclists through the small Gold Rush town of Campo Seco. The 45-mile course continues past Pardee Reservoir north to Harrah's new Northern California entertainment center and casino in Ione, then heads south to Camanche Reservoir, and back to New Hogan Reservoir. The 100-mile ride takes you past a rolling landscape and three steep hill climb options to the small Gold Rush towns of Paloma, Stoney Creek and South Hogan Dam Road.. The new Century Hill Climbs descents have spectacular views of Mt Diablo, the Valley and the Tri-Lake area.

Walk 4 Art will start at New Hogan Lake. The Chicken-in-a-Barrel Lunch will be at the Jenny Lind Veterans Memorial in Valley Springs.
