The Revolution Ride

A Fundraiser Supporting Athletic Programs for People with Physical Disabilities

The 11th Annual Revolution will take place on:
Saturday, September 28, 2013 at the Trentadue Winery in Geyserville, CA

Why We Ride
The Revolution is a great ride for all ability levels and everyone enjoys a wonderful day of cycling and celebration, with gourmet food, a pampering massage, live music, and good company in the gorgeous Sonoma wine country. However, the purpose of the Revolution and all of this fun is to raise funds to support athletes with disabilities and to help BORP further its mission in fostering the health, independence and social integration of people with physical disabilities through sports and recreation. The Revolution is BORP’s most important fundraising event of the year and provides the fuel for our growing programs.

About The Ride

The Revolution Ride and Festival takes place in the one of the most beautiful cycling landscapes in the world - the Sonoma Wine Country!  Participants choose to ride a distance along fully-supported S.A.G. (supplies and gear) routes that works for them.  Afterwards, everyone gathers for a post-ride celebration at the beautiful Trentadue Winery.
The "Rev" is a fundraising event to support BORP's programs for people with physical disabilities and their involvement in sports, fitness and recreation.  All adult participants raise a minimum of $400 (youth under 18 raise $150) to support a truly great cause.
The Revolution is a magical day of gorgeous cycling, excellent food, and great company.  As you enjoy the day alongside the athletes you're supporting, you will see what ability is all about.

65 Mile (100K) Take the Geyser/ Pine Flat Challenge (EXTREMELY DIFFICULT): Earn your bragging rights by climbing and conquering the Geyser/Pine Flat course.  This route begins with a gorgeous tour of the geysers, with climbs that promise to evoke a sense of awe.  After you’ve tackled the geysers, this route introduces Pine Flat Road, one of the most beautiful and undisturbed rides we’ve found in Northern California.

50 Mile: The Geyser Experience (EXTREMELY DIFFICULT):  Here is the route for those distance riders who love to seek out new challenges and work for that hard-earned sense of accomplishment.We know you’ve been looking for an excuse to conquer the geysers, so this year we’ve devoted our two longest routes to getting you up on that summit.  Click here for the 50 mile route.
45 Mile: Tour of the Wine Country (MODERATELY DIFFICULT): By popular demand we have added a 40 mile route that is less difficult than the The Geyser Experience! Click for a map of the 45 mile route

25 Mile: The Vineyard Tour (MODERATE): Through flat valley lands and a few rolling hills, the 20 mile route passes oak woodlands, orchards, and Sonoma's world-renowned wineries.  There is an optional 5 mile out and back to Lake Sonoma before rejoining the route that travels northward through the picturesque town of Geyserville.

5k - 10 Mile: The Trentadue Vineyard Roll & Stroll (EASY): If cycling isn't really your thing or if you prefer an easy go-at-your-own-pace ride, join the Roll & Stroll for a leisurely trip through the lovely Trentadue Vineyards. Choose a distance that works for you from 5k up to 10 miles.
Virtual Rider: Even if you can't make it to the Rev yourself you can help support all of BORP's programs by being a Virtual Rider. With this option, you register as a rider, fundraise to assist our participants, and ‘ride in absentee’. In this way, you are able to fully support the Revolution and our programs, even if you cannot ride in person. 
The Festival
Following the ride, participants, supporters, volunteers and friends celebrate the day’s success at a Food & Music Festival at Geyserville’s Trentadue Winery.
The Revolution Festival begins at 1pm, and features gourmet food, fine wine, live music, and a brief event program beginning at 5pm and lasting approximately 30-45 minutes. A dedicated team of massage-therapists offer free massages all day for riders, festival-goers, and guests!
The Festival is a way to join in the celebration of the day's success and another way to help support people with physical disabilities.
