Click to go to the web site for the Davis Double in Davis, California

The Davis Double the most popular double century in California. It is considered an ideal first double century. There is no "death", "terrible", "monster", "devil", or "heartbreak" in this ride. What really sets the Davis Double apart from other rides, for first-time as well as more experienced long-distance riders, is the level of support we give our riders. There are nine rest stops in addition to a lunch stop, and multiple SAG vehicles patrol the entire course. As for difficulty, there is about 8,000 feet of climbing with a few longer climbs. Nearly all of the climbing is under 10%, primarily in the 6-8% range, and the climbing ends well before Mile 150. There is also a four-mile section of hard-pack dirt road around Mile 100 in Big Canyon. The hard-pack section of the ride is a gradual climb with a few gentle rollers. You can see a video of it (as of May 2, 2015) here.

The ride starts at the Veterans Memorial Center at the intersection of 14th and B Streets in Davis. After leaving town, the first part of the ride runs through flat farmland in the Central Valley toward Esparto. The route then turns south to Winters before climbing over the Berryessa Gap and running north through the hills in east Napa County to Middletown and Lower Lake in Lake County for lunch. After a long climb up to Resurrection at the Lake/Yolo county border, the road descends through Cache Creek Canyon and Capay Valley back to the Central Valley farmland and the finish at the Veterans Memorial Center in Davis.
