Registration is open!

You are now able to register for the event on the IEBA's site: http://www.iebikingalliance.org/

You can also follow news and info postings on facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1562664113989341/

Last year's ride was a free, no-cost, gratis event. That was fantastic for everyone, but in efforts to expand, we've set this year's up as a fund-raiser for the IEBA. $35 $25 gets you in on what we hope to be a fantastic rollicking & rolling good time! The $35 $25 includes an annual membership in the IEBA, which goes directly to promoting more and safer bike riding in the Inland Empire. Cost is only $10 for current IEBA members. New members signing up with a $15 membership pay a total of only $25 for membership and RSR! Act now, supplies are limited! Operators are standing by!

Experience what we collectively consider some of the best roads and trails in the Eastern San Bernardino Valley, linked together in one full day of riding. Good trails, back roads, great scenery, fantastic people!

It's official! We're going to pull this off again! The Second Annual Redlands Strada Rossa will be held on the second day of spring this year. A metric century 100km course is the main event, but we are planning on also having a half-metric 50km route that shares most of the longer route's course. In order to really get people's attention, there will be a Friday night pre-ride party, and for folks that want to stick around till Sunday, a post-ride ride in the front-range of the San Bernardino Mtns just to our north.

Oh yeah, here's a preview:

Prepping for 2015!

Yes, we do hope to make this an annual event! Went out scouting the trails this beautiful weekend, and came up with some gems!

There are two main goals for designing next year's course: Reduce the amount of low/no-shoulder road being shared with fast cars and dial back the technical singletrack descents. Those were the two critiques we heard from multiple people, and we listen because we care! But don't fear, we'll still have a bit of climbing involved!!!

Who comes to Redlands to ride a bike?

The Redlands Strada Rossa drew participants from all over Southern California (and Virginia!). Redlands as a destination for bike riding is a pretty cool idea. We would love for Redlands to be on people's minds when they're thinking "What should I do this weekend?"

On that note, here is a map showing the towns that riders came from. This is only for those that showed up, so we're not trying to inflate it to show anything that's not there. Only one tag per town, so somewhere like Carlsbad that had four riders only gets one point. A very cool map, the benefit of living in a GIS town! Thanks John, for putting this together!
