NAPA VALLEY, CALIFORNIA
125 Miles // 9 Peaks // 13K feet of Climbing
The Napa9 route is 125 miles and boasts a whooping 13K-13.5K (depends on whose Garmin you look at) of climbing. The ride sends you up several of the steepest climbs (and down the steepest descents) in Napa Valley. Wild Horse Valley starts the day, followed by Mt. George, Atlas Peak, which is the longest climb at 8.3 miles and Soda Canyon, where the views are as spectacular as the steepness as you grind your way to the top.
Who Should Ride
This ride takes both physical and mental toughness. Only experienced cyclists who have done multiple rides of six to nine hours over extremely challenging terrain and weather conditions should ride. The recent Napa Valley winter has taken a toll on the roads—some of the descents are on very rough and pot-holed filled pavement; it takes a very skilled rider to navigate these safely. Napa9
Why we ride
Raising money for the Napa Police Youth Services Bureau
The Youth Services Bureau (YSB) provides, trains, and manages three (3) School Resource Officers (SRO) to high schools and middle schools. The YSB is also responsible for the development and management of the Napa Community Youth Services Diversion Program. It is the goal of the Napa Community Youth Diversion Program to work in partnership with the community by assisting youth who are exhibiting at –risk behaviors, which if not addressed may lead to criminal behavior. YSB focuses on delivering quality programs which in turn inspire youth to make positive changes in their lives while taking responsibility for their actions. Napa9
2020 is requiring the Napa Police Youth Services Bureau to have additional needs, and for that reason, we are adding a “Buy a Backpack” for $25. Each Backpack will be filled with school supplies for our youth in need.
