Travel and Accommodations

Santa Rosa is the happening hub for all there is to see, do, eat, drink, hike, bike and explore in Sonoma County.

Specific Locations

Packet Pickup

Packet Pickup takes place at the Church of One Tree. It is a stunning, historic building that was built in 1873 from a single redwood tree of the forest that envelopes Levi's GranFondo. The tree used to construct the Church stood 275 feet high and was 18 feet in diameter.

All participants are required to collect their rider packets in person.

The Ride Start

Our ride is unique in that it features a different start location than where it ends. Getting to the start is straightforward. Depending on where you're arriving from, you will want to take a different route. The easiest way is to ride your bike along 3rd Street from our recommended parking location until you reach A Place to Play.

RECOMMENDED PARKING:

PARKING: The green dot represents parking near Finley Community Park--coincidentally where the ride used to take place. Free parking is graciously made available to us by this business park on race weekend. It is just a few minutes by bike from both the A Place to Play and Juilliard Park.
START: The purple dot represents the ride's start location at A Place to Play.
FINISH: The blue dot is the festival location at Juilliard Park, and where the ride ends.

The red line is the best way to ride your bike there from Finley Community Park. (STRAVA ROUTE)
The blue line is how you should ride back to your vehicle after you're done. (STRAVA ROUTE)
