Cruise through the green hills and secluded valleys of northeastern San Luis Obispo County. See California the way it was during the mission days. There are three route options: 50, 75 and 100-miles in length. All three routes begin in Creston and then weave through the roads east of Templeton before stopping for lunch at the northern outpost of Shandon. Return to Creston over rolling foothills facing a delightfully cooling afternoon breeze. Adventurous centurions can continue south on challenging and desolate mountain roads, finally completing a loop back to Creston and a well-deserved barbecue dinner. Come join us and see why we're considered the best ride in California.

Eliminate the hassle of the Saturday morning crowds! Come out to Creston Friday night and pick up your registration materials. While you're there do a pre-ride carb load-up and benefit our host, the village of Creston, at the annual Spaghetti Feed put on by the Creston Women's Club Scholarship Fund.
We are proud to support the communities that host our events, as can you. The Creston School Science Camp will be hosting a booth at which they will sell coffee and treats you can purchase before you set out on your ride. You will find their booth near the registration area Saturday morning.
The Wildflower registration fee is $60.00. There is no day-of-ride registration. Moreover, the ride is popular and sells-out quickly. Register early to assure yourself a place.
The SLOBC uses the funds from its rides to support the great work of the San Luis Obispo Bicycle Coalition, sponsor scholarships for the CalPoly Wheelmen and Shandon High School, support programs at Creston Elementary, contribute to the maintenance of mountain biking trails, support bicycle advocacy organizations, promote helmet use in our area and other issues of concern to bicyclist.
Another fabulous Wildflower has gone into the history books. Go to the PhotoCrazy web site to look for your photos taken during the event .
