The Ride + Food & Wine Garden

Presented by UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center

Meet at 8:00 a.m. at the Veterans Memorial Park in Yountville with a 9:15 a.m. start time across the street at the St. Joan of Arc Church. Experience the beauty of Napa Valley on a private cycling excursion (17-, 25-, or 27-mile options). Pass through vineyard-lined avenues, sharing the road with friends of Crush Challenge. Enjoy a “rest stop” at ZD Wines in Rutherford during the Winemaker Barrel Tasting to imbibe in the barrel tasting and food bites.

Following the ride at the North Yountville Park, indulge in the all-inclusive Food & Wine Garden with live music paired with delicious food and wine from Napa Valley restaurants and wineries to round out the afternoon.
Register to Ride

All routes are ‘rules of the road’ rides, being on open public roads, including along picturesque Highway 29 and Silverado Trail. We utilize the California Highway Patrol for awareness purposes, as well as course marshals to help keep this event safe and fun. We recommend cyclists have previous ride experience, or join us for our Winemaker Barrel Tasting or Food & Wine Garden instead.

Note: Route distances subject to change; lengths may show variation depending on which tracker you use.

Cost includes admission to Food & Wine Garden immediately following the ride.

Barrel Tasting at ZD Wines + Food & Wine Garden

Presented by the Clarke Family Foundation

An alternative to the cycling ride, the barrel tasting at ZD Wines is hosted by the founding deLeuze family and winemakers. Located in Rutherford, guests will sample wines maturing in barrel and enjoy light food pairings prepared onsite by Winery Chef Jill deLeuze, 3rd generation of ZD's founding family. Relax on the Vineyard View Room & Deck overlooking the valley floor vineyards of Rutherford while sipping on award-winning ZD Wines.

All barrel tasting guests will receive complimentary admission to the Food & Wine Garden in Yountville immediately following the barrel tasting. Shuttles will be provided from North Yountville Park to ZD Wines and back.

Food & Wine Garden

The all-inclusive outdoor Food & Wine Garden brings together top vintner and culinary partners in the Napa Valley at the North Yountville Park, featuring sumptuous bites, tastes of premium wines, and Mad Fritz pouring cold beer. Entertainment includes live music by Moonstruck.
