The Fresno Cycling Club is excited to present the 45th Annual Climb To Kaiser and Tollhouse Century on Saturday, June 17, 2023.  The Climb to Kaiser is one of the most epic rides in the nation

For those who love a challenge and are willing to put forth the training and effort to be a finisher, it is truly a rewarding experience. Set in the scenic and beautiful Sierra Mountains, you will pass by Shaver Lake and Huntington Lake on your way to the top of Kaiser Pass, in many ways it is a one of a kind ride. At 56 miles shorter, the Tollhouse Century ride follows much of the same challenging route. Sign up for the one that suits your riding skills and abilities. 

  • The traditional Climb To Kaiser, rated as one of the 10 toughest rides in America by Bicycling Magazine; It is 155 grueling miles with nearly16,000 feet of climbing. This ride will test your mental and physical toughness. You never know what mother nature has in store on this unique challenging ride. The weather in the valley is generally hot this time of year, but nice in the mountains. On rare occasions we have had the summer mountain rain storm at the higher elevations. Finishers of the Climb to Kaiser earn the right to purchase the coveted Climb to Kaiser Finishers Jersey. (May be purchased with registration, refunds issued for those who DNF).
