The Revolution Ride & Festival, or “The REV,” is an incredible day of 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.
In 2017 nearly 300 individuals participated, raising over $215,000. This year, with your support, we are hoping to raise $220,000 in support of BORP’s life-changing sports, fitness and recreation programs for people with physical disabilities.
The REV takes place in the one of the most gorgeous cycling landscapes in the world -- Sonoma Wine Country! All the routes are fully supported and offer breathtaking views of vineyards and the rolling Sonoma countryside. After the ride, we all come together for a post-ride celebration at the picturesque Clos du Bois Winery.
The Revolution Festival takes place at Clos du Bois Winery in Geyserville CA. All routes both start and end at Clos du Bois. (19140 Geyserville Ave, Geyserville, CA 95441).
The Ride Routes
65 Mile (100k): The Revolution Challenge (CHALLENGING): The longest route at the Rev, the 65 mile leads you through historic Healdsburg as it's just waking up, crosses the Russian River, and winds through the scenic vineyards of Alexander Valley. The biggest climb of the day is a short push up quiet and redwood covered Green Valley Rd., and then it's miles of rollers along the world famous Westside Rd. wine route where it joins the shorter Revolution routes. You'll spend your last 20 miles riding with BORP's many adaptive and youth riders. Last year, a few strong handcyclists completed the 65 mile. 65 Mile Route Map
45 Mile: Tour of the Wine Country (MODERATE): The 45 is for those riders who want to experience all of the beauty of the Westside Valley, but spend a few fewer miles on the road. The 45-mile Tour of the Wine Country is a fun, moderately challenging ride with a few hills, great scenery, and like the 65, joins the 20-mile route at the end for an amazing BORP community experience. Many strong handcyclists complete this route every year. 45 Mile Tour of the Wine Country Route Map
20 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. A great ride for adaptive cyclists, families, and those riders who may not want to ride for too long. 20 Mile The Vineyard Tour Route Map
Optional Extension for 20mi, 45 mi, and 65 mi REV routes (MODERATE): The extension begins after the final rest stop on Dry Creek road and ends at the ride finish at Clos du Bois Winery. The extension adds 7.9 miles and 300 feet of climbing
5k – 10 Mile: The Trentadue Vineyard Roll & Stroll (EASY): For kids, families, and people who don’t want to ride on roads, Trentadue has given us exclusive access to their vineyards. Follow graded dirt paths suitable for bikes, trikes, handcycles, strollers, and power chairs. Choose a distance from 5k to 10 miles and ride as fast or as slow as you want, it’s up to you. Just keep your hands off the luscious grapes!
Following the ride, participants, supporters, volunteers and friends celebrate the day’s success!
The Revolution Festival begins at 1 pm and features live music, gourmet food, fine wine, music, and a brief event program lasting approximately 30-45 minutes. A dedicated team of massage-therapists offers 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.Fundraising Minimums
