2020 Event Cancellation - Thank You For Supporting RSR!


It pains me to say it, but between the El Dorado Fire in Yucaipa and local rules regarding organized events in public open space, we have no choice but to cancel Strada Rossa. 

Your refund will be processed shortly. If you purchased a t-shirt, that order will be refunded too.

We held on as long as we could because we genuinely believe we could have put on a safe ride. We know riding your bike and a little outdoor, socially distant comraderie are good for the soul, and to be completely frank, the non-profits this ride benefits desperately need your financial support.

So what now?
When the smoke clears, come out to Redlands and ride the 'unsanctioned' Strada Rossa 7 course on your own.

If you're able, please consider making a donation to one (or all) of the organizations below. 100% of your entry fee will be put to use improving and maintaining our trail system and teaching folks who rely on a bicycle for transportation how to repair their own rig.

Redlands Conservancy -

I'd love to say "we'll see you in the Spring", but at this point, who knows.

stay safe and ride on,

New Date: October 24.... Corona Rossa!

 Oh, hello there. Yes, it's us... the Redlands Strada Rossa folks. We're peeking our heads out and looking to see if it's clear to go for a bike ride. So far we feel confident holding a no-host ride on 10/24. All registered participants have been sent the details on that, as well as how to ask for a refund. What changes is that there won't be a mass start, or an after party. No ride over the dam. No riding through El Dorado. We still hope to share the day and our trails with you, and celebrate what we do have and the community that has built up around this event. Please reach out if you have questions or concerns.
