The Fresno Cycling Club invites all riders to take the challenge at this year’s 43rd Annual Climb to Kaiser on Saturday, June 22, 2019. We offer three rides to choose from: The traditional Climb to Kaiser, rated as one of the 10 toughest rides in America by Bicycling Magazine, The Tollhouse Century, and the Millerton Metric.
The Climb to Kaiser is not an easy ride. How much you enjoy the ride will depend on your training in the months prior to the event. The Climb to Kaiser riders should be able to complete a century with 8,000 to 10,000 feet of climbing in 8 to 10 hours. We suggest that each rider have a bicycle in excellent condition, and carry two water bottles and tools for doing your own minor repairs.
The Tollhouse Century is 95 miles with 7,500 feet of climbing. Perfect for the intermediate climber who aspires to complete the Climb to Kaiser but wants to feel it out first and get a taste of the Fresno foothills and heat.
The Millerton Metric is perfect for the beginning climber who wants to put their new climbing skills to the test with 71 miles and 3,500 feet of climbing.
