The Fresno Cycling Club is known for providing cyclists the notorious Climb to Kaiser. On October 9, 2021 we extend our tradition of quality rides with the 16th annual Bass Lake Powerhouse Double Century. We invite all serious cyclists from around the world to ride in the splendid beauty of the western Sierra Nevada mountain range. The route has 10,562 feet of climbing.

On site registration will also be available Friday, October 8th from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm (cash payment only $140)

Rider Check-in/packet pickup Friday (October 8th from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm), and Saturday morning (October 9th from 3:30 am to 6:30 am)

For riders wanting an official time rather than just an official finish, there will be a 6:30 am mass start. No rider is to leave after 7:00 am.

BLDC is held rain or shine. No refunds or credits. Tandem riders must register & pay separately. AT CHECK-IN, each rider must sign a waiver before starting. Minors (under 18) must be accompanied on ride by a responsible adult and have a waiver co-signed by a parent or guardian

Rider Check-in / packet pickup & registration will be at Homewood Suites (Hampton Inn).
