Last Minute Notes

Strada Rossa is just a few days away. We will ride rain or shine. To streamline registration, we will offer an early opportunity to pick up your wristband at Stell Coffee & Teaon Friday 3/1 from 6-8pm.

On Saturday morning the ride will stage from Stell Coffee & Tea in Redlands starting at 6am. If you’re local, please ride to the ride. If you’re coming from further away, you may not park inside the Stell’s shopping center. You must utilize the street for parking instead.

If you have an old bike or parts in the garage, we will be collecting donations for Redlands BikeBBQ.

91 mile ride @ 7:00am – https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29244562

63 mile ride @ 8:00am - https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29060441

39 mile ride @ 9:00am - https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28851986

You can find a map that shows all three courses and SAG stops (including information about when they open and when they close) here:


The ride finish and afterparty will be held ~1 mile up the hill at 1027 S San Mateo St 92373. For the 60 and 90 milers, your wristband and ID will be required to enter Seven Oaks Dam. Your wristband also entitles you to a meal after the ride and one drink ticket. Please bring cash (or a card) to purchase additional beverages. We will stop serving food at 5pm.

Strada Rossa is not a race. You'll be sharing the road with vehicles and you must yield to trail users on foot and horseback. Do not deviate from the marked trails, even to avoid mud. Dismount from your bike if you encounter any hazards. You are likely to encounter bees as well, so be prepared for a real adventure.

Please extend the utmost courtesy to everyone you see on Saturday and represent the cycling community in a positive light. In the event of an emergency on the course, please dial (909) 257-7702.

Strada Rossa would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors, partners and tireless volunteer crew. No one is getting paid a penny to put this ride on, so please channel my own appreciation the day of the ride.
