CANCELED for 2020 !

The 2020 PARTY PARDEE Metric Century is FULLY 
More information about this very difficult decision
follows below:



Dear Party Pardee Participant:

With all the latest concerns with Covid-19 social-distancing, no congregation of large groups, and difficulty preventing the spread of the virus, etc., the Sacramento Bike Hikers have explored all the possible ways to keep the Party Pardee 2020 ride open on October 24th. Our primary concerns are the health and safety of our riders and volunteers. We have made inquiries to all the county health authorities that govern such events, and unfortunately, the answer stays the same. At this time no one for certain can say Party Pardee will or will not be allowed to happen as planned until the last moment, possibly just days before the event.

Because of the all the months of planning, permits and insurance that it takes to make such an event happen successfully, there is no assurance at this time the event can take place until the last moment.  Since we do not anticipate any viable way to assure the health and safety of 1500 riders and volunteers, the Sacramento Bike Hikers sadly announce the Party Pardee 2020 is canceled for the first time in the history of this event.

All currently registered riders will automatically have their registration rolled over to a guaranteed spot in Party Pardee 2021 on April 3, 2021, along with any merchandise purchased. Sadly, we understand a few of you feel you must cancel. If you cancel your registration, all merchandise purchased will also be canceled and refunded. In the next few days you will receive another email with instructions on how to cancel and request a refund once we have coordinated the process with Active.comCancelation requests can be made thru September 30, 2020.

Thank you for your patience in these trying times. We wanted so much to put on Party Pardee 2020, but it just wasn’t meant to be! We hope you will join us for Party Pardee 2021 in April.

Two Routes to enjoy


You won't be disappointed!

100K Route (65 miles)
Ride the quiet country around Ione, passing Lake Camanche and Pardee Reservoir, through quiet little towns like Buena Vista, Campo Seco, and Valley Springs. The route is a challenge for most riders, with plenty of "rollers" through the green wooded foothills in all their spring glory. Hits the sweet spot in your early training! About 3500' of climbing.
Route Profile  RWGPS
 50K Route (26 miles)
A scaled down version of the 100K with less climbing and fewer miles but just as much scenery. Still a challenge for riders looking for a shorter option. About 1200' of climbing.

 Come Join the Party! 

Yes, the riding is wonderful and as challenging as you want it to be. But we offer more:  A PARTY !

From the beginning of Party Pardee in 1993, each year's event has a distinct festive theme. The banquet hall, the rest stops, and even the very enthusiastic and helpful v
olunteers are adorned accordingly. Party Pardee is the most fun cycling event around!

In 2020 we celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the
   Roaring 20's! 

Doll and Gangsters
Starter breakfast before the ride
Catch a little of the 20's vibe as you fuel-up with  goodies and coffee (donated by Coffee Works), served by flappers, guys, dolls and fellas. Watch out for the goons and grifters. Obey the bulls, and you'll be the bee's knees! Ya follow?

Delicious Post-Ride Lunch

Amador Catering serves tri-tip, chicken or a vegetarian option, four salads, and dessert. Wet your palate with a variety of beverages, including non-Prohibition beer and wine (no-host). Swell!

Live Music

Listen and dance to the sounds of Island of Black and White, known for their high energy fusion of rock, funk, blues, folk and reggae.
