Wine and Roses Bike Ride

Cyclists ride along picturesque roads before enjoying bbq, wine & roses

Cyclists from across California and beyond are invited to register for the Annual Wine and Roses Bike Ride, taking place on Saturday, Oct. 11.

Due to the popularity of this annual event, this year’s registration will be open to 350 cyclists. Registration opens on; the ride is expected to sell out and interested riders are encouraged to register early.

The event opens Friday at 6 p.m. with the Bike Bash Dinner at Wild Horse Winery. The next morning at Templeton Park, cyclists will meet to start out on one of the 30, 65 (metric century), or 100-mile pre-marked routes. The courses allow cyclists to ride some of the best cycling roads in the area, such as Highway 229, Vineyard Drive, Peachy Canyon and Adelaida.

The ride finishes up back at the park, where participants enjoy barbeque chicken and tri-tip, wine, and roses for the women. The event has become a major fundraiser for the Templeton Chamber with proceeds going to support community events and area non-profits throughout the year.
