Solvang Century • Description
Solvang, the faux "Danish Capital of America", is one of the most popular cycling regions in California. The Solvang Century is the biggest event in the area. Other rides include the Solvang Spring Double Century and Solvang Autumn Double Century.
The Solvang Century leads west through Buellton and follows Santa Rosa Road to Lompoc. Then the route turns north, visiting Vandenberg Village and Santa Maria, the farthest point. Afterwards the course leads east towards Sisquoc, and then south following Foxen Canyon and Ballard Canyon back into Solvang.
Sandra, Lisa, and I went for the weekend to Solvang. This ride is very popular, attracting thousands of riders.
