    The Half Moon Bay to Santa Cruz Ride has been scheduled for September 6-7 (Saturday and Sunday). It will be here before you know it. For those of you who have done this ride before, this year it is not taking place on the weekend of the Big Kahuna triathlon!

    Team Alameda has reserved a limited block of rooms at a special discounted rate. Only six rooms in the reserved block remain, so don't hesitate to book your room now if you plan on going!

    Registration for the ride is now open and all riders must register online. You can choose to pay the registration fees online (preferred) or send a check. Registration fees ($15 members, $20 non-members) will go towards ride support (SAG and rest stops). 

    Dinner, drinks, and overnight stays are the rider’s responsibility (both reserving and paying). Room rates are as follows:

    • Single Queen $149.95
    • Single King $169.95
    • Double Queen $199.95
    There is a very limited supply of rooms in Santa Cruz during Summer, so please reserve your room first and then register for the ride. The TA block of rooms will be held until July 15. Hotel name and contact information is available in members-only area here.
