California is open to all ROAD RACING, CYCLOCROSS AND GRAVEL BYCICLES with carbon, steel, titanium and aluminum frames.
The bikes must have drop handlebars. The ride follows the new scenic 82 mile "La via dello Scalatore" Route and participants will experience the most challenging gravel roads of Eroica California. This is one of the most spectacular rides on the Central Coast of California. NOVA Eroica participants who join the NOVA Eroica Strava Club will use the Strava app to track and time segments of the ride and compete with other NOVA Eroica Strava Club members. Riders can participate in NOVA Eroica without using the Strava app, but segments will not be timed. Both teams and individuals are encouraged to participate and experience the Eroica spirit, the beauty of fatigue and the thrill of the conquest on modern bikes.
