Last year’s inaugural Incarnation 100 brought in over 150 cyclists from all over California, and even a few cyclists from outside of California! We also had over 100 volunteers from the Church of the Incarnation, and from the greater community! The Incarnation 100 is a great opportunity to bring the church together with the outside community, and show the people of the State of California, and even the people of the United States, the good work The Episcopal Church does to serve the needy.

The Incarnation 100 supports three vital Sonoma County homeless service entities formed by the Church of the Incarnation:

• The Living Room - provides day services for homeless women and children;
• Sunday Open Table - provides Sunday morning meals and fellowship to the homeless in downtown Santa Rosa; and
• St. Andrews Food Program - provides groceries and meals to people in the underserved Russian River area, at St. Andrews-in-the-Redwoods.

Starting and finishing at the Church of the Incarnation in the heart of historic downtown Santa Rosa, the Incarnation 100 offers three different course options. The 45-mile route takes a leisurely path through Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley and West Sonoma County with course highlights of Wohler Bridge, Martinelli Road, and historic downtown Graton. The 100-km route is almost identical to the 45-mile route but includes the hidden gem and challenge of Sweetwater Springs Road—a secret favorite of many Sonoma County cyclists—which skirts the entrance of Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve. The 100-mile route is a challenging, grand tour of Dry Creek Valley, Russian River Valley, and West Sonoma County; in addition to Sweetwater Springs Road, riders will make their way farther out west along a course that includes Graton, Joy, Occidental, and Cherry Ridge Roads.

A great event for avid and recreational cyclists alike. Everyone, from those on the serious cycling circuit to occasional bike enthusiasts, is welcome. A rolling start will begin at 7:00 a.m.

The Incarnation 100 costs are $70.00 for 45 miles, $80.00 for 100km, $90.00 for 100mile. This cost includes: ride t-shirt. SAG, multiple rest stops, and a gourmet meal at an after party with live music are also included!
Discounts are available for group registrations of 10 or more. Event jerseys are also available for separate purchase.

Sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are also available! For more information, please email
