The Canary Challenge is a fully supported event offering a 5K walk/ride/run along with four cycling routes: 50K, 50 miles, 75K, and 100 miles – all with multiple food and water stops, mechanical and medical assistance, and plenty of commemorative gifts.
The rides cater to all levels of cycling strength and time availability. The longer routes cruise the foothills of the Peninsula, with the 75K and 100 mile routes taking riders up and over Skyline Boulevard. The Canary Century (100 miles) stretches through Pescadero and San Gregorio, onto Highway 1 and up the coast. The family-friendly 5K was added in 2013.
The Canary Challenge welcomes cyclists of all skill levels. In 2017, we anticipate more than 1,000 cyclists to participate.
