A New Course

Due to the road closure on our traditional course, we have an entirely new course this year. We will hold the BHRR on the Crocket Loop. A clockwise loop that starts at south end of Cummings Skyway. Then on to Crockett Blvd, up Ponoma Drive, and then across Carquinez Scenic Drive. We then challenge you with the climb up McEwen Road for a slightly uphill finish on Franklin Canyon Road.


Champions Discount

Current NCNCA and National Road Champions will receive a refund of all but $5.00 on race-day at the registration desk if. In order to qualify (1) Your entry must be received before the pre-registration deadline (otherwise pay full entry plus late fee), and; (2) You must  ride in the category in which you are champion (Master's Champions may ride down in age.) Championship jersey is not required.


The Cause

$15.00 of your registration fee will be donated to the Berkeley High School Mountain Bike Team. Also, Shimano, our lead race sponsor, has offered to generously support our sponsorships efforts. The proceeds raised will be used to create a loaner bike program that will allow kids to experience the joy of cycling, no matter their economic background. Thank you for supporting this cause.
