FulGaz HD Cycling Videos: Ride the World’s Best Routes

Coleman Creek

Occidental, CA, USA

About the ride

Rolling roads down to the Californian coast and back. This ride forms part of Levi’s Grand Fondo. There’s a lot of climbing, and the ride back up Coleman Creek is brutal! I was shown the ride by Phil Fifer from Sonoma Bike Guides. He’s the rider in the video.Terrain - Hilly and tough with 7 min, 12 min and 10 min climbs, some gradients above 10%. Loops are rides where the start and finish are at the same point, this lets you do multiple laps without getting weird distances in Strava etc. To ride multiple laps of a ride non-stop, go to Settings then select Laps from the Ride Modes menu.
