King of the Mountains Stage 2

You choose the distance and climbing -- this course has something for everyone:

∑ 2 Pass Option: 51 Miles with 4,400 Feet of Climbing

This option heads out of Redlands to some great country roads. The first pass is Jack Rabbit Trail Ė one of Robert Kahlerís favorite climbs that reminds him of climbing on the backroads of France. You will be treated to Food Stop #1 in Beaumont before the beautiful climb up the second pass to the apple orchards of Oak Glen!! This climb is one of the toughest on the Redlands Bicycle Classic, an event that attracts teams from around the world. You will climb 1,690 Feet in 4.8 Miles for an Average Grade of 6.7%!! There are some pieces that are over 11.4% which will leave you Breathless for sure so bring your climbing gears!! The reward is an incredible 7 mile downhill to Food Stop #2 at the Mill Creek Ranger Station followed by another 7 mile downhill back to the park!! A 3 GU Ride.

∑ 3 Pass Option: 75 Miles with 7,800 Feet of Climbing

After completing the 2 Pass Option, fuel up at Food Stop #2 at the Mill Creek Ranger Station and then for some more challenge and beauty, climb up towards Onyx Summit to Angelus Oaks where there will be a Food Stop #3 waiting for you!! And donít forget about the well deserved, long, smooth, and fast 18 miles of pure downhill!! This is a 4 GU Ride for sure!!

∑ 4 Pass Option: 114 Miles with 12,000 Feet of Climbing

After fueling up at Food Stop #3 in Angelus Oaks, continue up and up until you get to Onyx Summit, 8,443 Feet Above Sea Level. The clock stops at the top of the mountain in the Breathless Agony ... just like in a Mountain Stage in the Tour de France. It will be a great party with the Grim Reaper at Onyx Summit at 8,443 Feet. All 4 Pass Finishers will also receive a well deserved medal at the top. However, the riding doesnít finish at the top: since the clock has stopped, you can take your time enjoying a fantastic and well deserved 42 mile downhill back to the Start / Finish at Sylvan Park in Redlands where youíll have another party including a Burrito Fiesta Lunch all of which is included in the ride fee. Since this ride is comparable in difficulty to the Markleeville Death Ride, this is a 5 GU Major Adventure for Supermen and Superwomen only!! NOTE: All 4 Pass Finishers are expected to ride their bicycles the 42 miles downhill back to the Start / Finish at Sylvan Park.
