About

The Stockton Bicycle Club invites you to the 42nd Delta Century, a Northern California classic - among the flattest and fastest 100 miles or 100 kilometers anywhere!

The date is tentatively Saturday May 6th, 2023, starting under the oaks at the lovely Jessie's Grove Winery, the oldest winery in San Joaquin County. Three routes are available, all completely flat and well supported with fully stocked rest stops, SAG vehicles, radio communications, detailed maps and route sheets, and a delicious post ride meal.

The Stockton Bicycle Club donates more than 80% of the net proceeds to a variety of worthy local and national charities.


Routes

The Delta Century includes three routes, a 100 mile, 66 mile, and a 26 mile route. There are no hills, and the only climbing is for bridges and levees. This makes for an ideal first century or organized ride. Traffic is very light, and there are no traffic signals.

The Quarter Century: 26 miles of vineyards with a fully stocked rest stop midway.

The Metric Century: A delightful 67 mile loop of vineyards, levee roads, rivers and sloughs, and a ride on the J-Mack Ferry!

The Full Century: 100 of the flattest miles around. The same loop as the Metric (including a ride on the J-Mack Ferry) with an added loop to the north.

The routes are available here at Ride with GPS. Please note the routes may be subject to change due to road, bridge or ferry closures or safety issues. Check back just before the ride, and consult the route sheet and course markings on the day of the ride.
