Challengingly Beautiful  

Virtual Cycling Experience 

Benefitting the Coastside Community

Registration now open, click here to register.

The Sequoi-tual 2021 is a hybrid virtual / DIY cycling experience with a simple goal: to raise funds for three coastside organizations and other cycling-centric causes while also offering the cycling community “a light at the end of the tunnel” that just happens to be Challengingly Beautiful! Our plan is to offer a “semi-supported” basic route that includes: route marking with RouteArrows, a map and cue sheet with route info noting existing stores and infrastructure and a very cool commemorative jersey by Voler, all included in the registration fee. If the total number of registrants allows, more route and community support ingredients might be provided. There will be no SAG support or manned rest stops since these are not an option for mid-2021. Additional details will be provided as they become available, so please sign up for our email list to be informed when we open The Sequoi-tual registration and have important updates!

The Sequoia has donated over $30,000 to both coastside and cycling charities since 2017, and we want to continue that tradition in 2021 and beyond. Our 2021 list of charities includes:

The Registration fee of $125 includes: a well-marked 73 mile - 8,100 feet gain “Basic Route” as well as route and navigation info on maps and cue sheets and “Ride with GPS” links. Additional Challengingly Beautiful route lengths from 63 miles to 100+ miles and 10,600+ feet gain will also be made available soon!  You can choose any route option, pick your day, then bring your own snacks or stop at any of the friendly, local on-route stores. We plan to provide some limited, well-placed food and water support, as conditions allow.  The single registration price will include these ingredients and a commemorative Voler jersey you’ll be proud to own.

Participants must be strong, competent cyclists who enjoy a challenging, (and beautiful!) route that gains over 100 ft per mile, while riding on their own, or with a friend or three, and wants to support these amazing coastside and cycling organizations while proudly wearing a well-earned bright, colorful jersey.

The Start-Finish “zone” will be in Los Altos, near El Monte, off Foothill Expressway. There will be no monitored parking, or a check-in, or rest stops, SAG support, or a finish line meal provided.  So fill your water bottles, begin your ride nearby, get on the route, zero your odometer and head west!

Our date window is from Tuesday June 1st until Sunday June 6th. Riders are welcome to ride any of those days, assuming all existing safety protocols in place in early June are followed. Registration will open by late February, announced here and by email notice (see links!).  Register as soon as you can so you’ll receive your jersey before you ride! More jersey info will be posted when Registration opens!

The Challenging Beautiful ride that you've been waiting for is Sequoi-tually back for 2021.   More information about additional Sequoi-tual route options will be added before registration opens.
