XeDapViet (XDV) Cycling Club invites you to experience some of the challenging scenic roads of California's coast range mountains and the dazzling coastline of Monterey County. Our 6th annual Carmel Valley Double (CVD) will take place LIVE on Saturday, August 28th, 2021 at
Salinas Valley Fairgrounds
625 Division Street, King City, CA 93930
Due to damages caused by the 2020 Big Sur Dolan wildfire, Nacimiento-Fergusson Rd. still remains closed.
An alternate 2021 CVD course is already in place:
From the start in King City to the lunch stop in Big Sur the new course is the same as in the original CVD loop course. After lunch at the Big Sur Taphouse (Mile 95), this year, riders will turn around back to King City with an additional out-and-back climb, Robinson Canyon Rd. in Carmel.
The route is tentative pending final permit approval from the counties. Feel free to upload this route to your navigation device with the caveat that road or weather conditions may force us to change the route at the last minute. You will receive the official cue sheet in your rider packet.
The Carmel Valley Double is fully supported. Ride support includes 7 full rest stops and 1 water stop, all stocked with signature cycling food/beverages. Lunch will be served at Rest Stop #4 in Big Sur (Mile 95). There will be a catered dinner at the finish (Mile 200).
Full SAG support along the entire course.
Rest stops’ open and close times are based on 04:00 start. Faster riders who can finish the course in less than 17 hours are asked to start between 05:00 to 06:00 so our volunteers at rest stops can serve you better.
Also, please review our COVID-19 protocol before signing up.
