A Cycling Experience Unlike Any Other...

 

the best way to see napa valley...

Experience the beauty of Napa Valley on a private cycling excursion (27 or 38 mile options) that will depart from the Veterans Home of California, located on the hill above the Napa Valley's dining mecca, Yountville. Take the wheel of our hosts as you pass through vineyard lined avenues sharing the road with the friends of The Crush Challenge, which has previously included cycling pros past and present Alex Steida, Freddie Rodriguez, Alison Tetrick, Bob Roll, Chris Carmichael, Brent & Jamie Bookwalter, Levi Leipheimer, and Christian Vande Velde to name a few. Complete ride support will be provided by SRAM & Napa River Velo, as well as a unique stop-over ('rest stop') at the ZD Rutherford Estate. Following the ride, indulge in The Food & Wine Marketplace! Participants share their stories of the "Crush" as post-ride entertainment paired with delicious food and wine from many Napa Valley Restaurants and Wineries will round out the afternoon. $175pp with commemorative jersey / $125pp without jersey

Ride with team 7-eleven at the 2018 crush challenge...

New for 2018!

The Crush Challenge is proud to announce that former professional cyclists and members of the venerated Team 7-Eleven that first brought the USA to the Tour de France will be joining us for our private ride, where they will be riding in support of their teammate Davis Phinney and his foundation for Parkinson's. This is your opportunity to catch the wheel (and a story or two) from the athletes that traveled the world in pursuit of yellow and pink jerseys, medals and glory on the cobblestones of the classics.
