34th Annual Kirch Flat Century and Rides
Hello Cycling Community! The Fresno Cycling Club is excited to invite you to join us for the 34th Annual Kirch Flat Century and Rides. What started as a small club ride with a ride leader and one SAG volunteer who took lunch to the Kirch Flat campground for the riders, has grown over the years into a fully supported event with SAG, 5 rest stops, 6 ride variations on 5 routes with Communications provided by the Clovis Amateur Radio Pioneers.
This year, we are returning the Kirch Flats Ride to an Active members-only ride. We will still have SAG, the rest stops, communications and an after-ride meal, but we want to encourage more of our members to ride by reducing the price.
We invite inactive members to renew their membership and non-members to join. The price for the ride is $35 no matter the route. Non-members who wish to do the ride can become a member before registering for the ride at: Fresno Cycling Club - Join/Renewal. The 15-mile Family ride is still free this year.
Please join us Saturday, May 4, 2024, at 7:00 am at Pasa Tiempo Park,
1134 Barstow Ave. Clovis, CA 93619
*Located on the N/W corner of Barstow & DeWolf.
The Kirch Flat is our most popular all levels ride. We have 6 ride variations: a 15-mile beginner/family friendly route (A-level Ride); a 48-mile route (B/C-level Ride); a flat metric route (B/C-level Ride); a hilly metric route (C/D-level Ride); a century route and a century+ route (108 miles) (C/D-level Rides). So, round up your family and friends and get registered for this classic event. There will be a delicious after ride meal. You will be treated to great rest stops with friendly volunteers, SAG support and great scenery. We hope to see you there.Check-in Saturday morning starting at 06:30 am to 08:20 am at Paso Tiempo Park.
