The Fallflower 100 will have riders go up to the small hillside community of Cohasset (elevation 2,000 feet), before heading back down to Chico for the 1st rest stop(at the Elks Lodge/Manzanita Place). From there, we head up the famous(and infamous!) Honey Run Road climb to Paradise! We'll stop at the Paradise Community Park for the 2nd rest stop.......before climbing up and up and up to Lovelock via Coutelenc Road! From there, we'll head down Pentz Road.....before stopping at the Durham Park for the final rest stop. An easy stroll through Bidwell Park will bring riders back to Manzanita Avenue - and to the finish at the Elks Lodge/Manzanita Place. Total mileage is 100, with about 4,600 feet of total climbing!

The Fallflower 75 follows the exact same route as the Fallflower 100 - except for the Cohasset climb. You will ride up the classic climb of Honey Run Road - take Pearson Road over to Pentz Road - then up Pentz Road to Coutelenc.....and up and up and up! The 75-mile route is one of the most popular rides among local cyclists. The route climbs approximately 3,300 feet.

The Fallflower 50 eliminates the Cohasset and Lovelock(Coutelenc) climbs.

The Fallflower 10 is a ride for everyone! From Manzanita Place, the riders will head to Bidwell Park for an autumn-time loop around this scenic environment - before heading to Upper Park for a quick stop at Horseshoe Lake!
