Start Planning for the Santa Cruz Ride!
The Half Moon Bay to Santa Cruz Ride has been scheduled for September 6-7 (Saturday and Sunday). 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. Registration and ride details are still in the works, but room details are firm.
Registration fees (TBD) will go toward 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
We emphasize the limited supply of rooms in Santa Cruz during Summer, so please plan on doing this fun annual Team Alameda ride (50 miles each day).
Reserve your room NOW! The TA block of rooms will be held until July 15. Hotel name and contact information is available in members-only area here.
