Sports Day For Charity – 2014

 Another great day in the books!

Our second annual Sports Day for Charity held on Saturday, July 26th was a huge success.  We had over 500 participants across the 3 sports (Obstacle Course for kids, 3 – Bike Rides and the 4 on 4 Reverse Coed Grass volleyball tournament) and were supported by more than 100 volunteers.  With your help, we are well on our to continuing our goal of achieving $50,000 in 5 years!

Sports Day – Bike Ride – 2014

Bike Ride

The Wipeout Cancer Sports Day bike ride will be a day full of fun and excitement where riders of all levels join forces and support cancer organizations focused on patient care.

The Sports Day bike event is a ride, not a race. Whether you are an occasional rider or an experienced cyclist, there is a route just for you. SAG support and aid stations will be available. Complimentary bike tune-ups will be available for all bike participants in the morning at the Campbell Community Center. Complimentary bike valet at the Campbell Community Center will be provided for all bike participants.

Helmets are required for all riders.

Date: July 26, 2014

Three rides to choose from (tentative routes posted below):

  1. Fun* – This is a short ride around the neighborhood for kids aged 4-12 to improve their bicycle skills and have a fun spin with supervised activities. Parents/guardian can join kids as they navigate their bikes along a 1 mile route in the quiet streets directly behind the Campbell Community Center. Kids can ride the route multiple times while the Fun course is open. Note: For the safety of our riders, we will NOT ride along the Los Gatos Creek Trail this year.
  2. Fitness – 50km (31 miles), 1000 feet elevation. This course is mostly flat, which is appropriate for most beginner and intermediate road cyclists. You’re welcome to ride your mountain bike or hybrid, though the course consists entirely of paved roads. The fitness ride takes you north through Cupertino, along Foothill Boulevard where you can rest at an aid station at Lincoln Park in Los Altos after 13 miles. The course weaves 5 miles through some side streets and circles back around to the same aid station with only 13 miles to the finish. The course follows much of the same route back to Campbell Community Center, where you can enjoy a delicious lunch. Download 50k Cue Sheet
  3. Challenge – 100km (62 miles), 4600 feet elevation. This challenging course is for experienced intermediate and advanced cyclists to test their climbing legs up the 8.5 miles category 2 climb up Page Mill Road to Skyline. Fill up your bottles and grab a snack at the aid station at the top of Page Mill, then safely enjoy the descent down Skyline and Highway 84. Rolling hills along Portola Road, Westridge Road, and Arastradero bring you back to Foothill Boulevard for an aid station in Los Altos. Then, it’s all flat back to Campbell Community Center, where you’ll recover with a well-earned lunch at the park. Download 100k Cue Sheet

Since the route is “out-and-back”, riders can opt to turn back at any time to accommodate riders preferences and time.

  2. Fitness (32 miles) – The fitness route is 32 miles with 1500 ft. elevation. The route is suitable for intermediate cyclists who are comfortable with some climbing and can handle themselves on city streets (mixed with car traffic). The fitness route heads west from the Campbell Community Center through Cupertino for a flat first 8 miles, past De Anza College. A left turn on Foothill brings us up a 4 mile gradual climb up Stevens Canyon Rd and Mt. Eden Rd. Turn right onto Pierce Rd for a short and steep climb, then the fitness route will split off from the challenge route with mostly downhill/flat roads through Saratoga looping back to the Campbell Community Center.

At the Skyline Blvd summit, we head north on Skyline/Hwy 35, followed by a thrilling descent on Page Mill to Foothill.
