Much like the rest of the world, Party Pardee was canceled for 2020 and 2021 due to Covid19.
  Nearly all registrants chose to rollover their registration both years to be assured of a spot in this year’s return event.  Only a few hundred registrations were available before reaching our limit of 1500 riders. These remaining registrations sold quickly!

(Appropriate Covid safety procedures will be followed at this event)

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.

 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 2022 we finally 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, 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

Refuel after the ride with a generous, healthy main course, salad, 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.
