Co-founder of Bike Friday, Alan Scholz’s pick: Solvang Century
When Alan heard we were putting out another list, he wanted to make sure that this personal favorite made it into the mix. Alan rode in the Solvang Century a number of years ago and loved it “It’s a beautiful spring ride, and if I had the time I would absolutely do it again!” The 100-mile SoCal ride supports cycling as a means of rehabilitative therapy for heart disease. Proceeds go to benefit three summer camps for children with severe congenital heart disease.
2017 Date TBA – Solvang, CA
Make sure to look for this ride next spring!
