There is a reason why Santa Clarita is known as the Southern California hub of cycling -- scores of great bike paths snake through this wide-open and scenic valley. Join hundreds of your fellow cyclists along the scenic San Fransciquito Bike Path and beyond as well as riding the beautiful Santa Clara River Path. For those who want a serious ride, take on our Metric Century which travels up to Acton by the world-famous Vasquez Rocks.
BONUS!! This year, we have added a 5K and a 10K you can run or walk! To throw in an extra twist, since it is Halloween we are encouraging you to get in costume, so get creative, and come dressed in your spooky best! Awards will be given for the best costumes.

Finish The Ride was started by cyclist Damian Kevitt as a movement for safer streets after he was hit and nearly killed while riding in Griffith Park in February of 2013.
Finish The Ride is the spirit of courage and determination to overcome tragedy despite apparently insurmountable odds. It's a movement that has literally been heard around the world. Through its awareness campaigns, the Finish The Ride event has been responsible for dropping hit and run crimes by 16% in a single year.
