Ride to Eat

Fruit Yard Century October 11, 2014

The Stanislaus County Bicycle Club invites you to our 3rd Annual Fruit Yard Century, on Saturday, October 11, 2014 starting at the Fruit Yard Restaurant, East of Modesto, CA.

This event offers three routes traversing the Central Valley farmlands, and the Central Sierra Nevada foothills. There’s a route for every skill level. We have even included a favorite part of our previous Cheese and Wine Century, the formidable Marshes Flat Road!

You will receive a descriptive route map at the start/finish, and the routes will be well-marked. We will also have the radio-dispatched SAG support provided by the Stanislaus Amateur Radio Association.

All of the routes will have rest stops, well supplied with a variety of fresh fruit, snacks, and drinks. Also, our rest stops will provide food prepared by the American Culinary Foundation! That’s right, we have chefs working our rest stops.

The 104 mile and 100 km rides will be treated to a full lunch midway through the day. Continental breakfast will be served at the ride start and will include coffee, pastry and fruit. All riders will receive an an “after-ride” BBQ chicken dinner, served by The Fruit Yard Restaurant. Vegetarian fare will also be available.
