THERE WILL NOT be a 2020 Great Scott Ride due to funding issues

Thank you to the County of Sacramento for providing the bulk of the funding over the last 8 years of the Great Scott Bike and Walk Event. 

Sadly, due to funding issues and hiring freezes, the County of Sacramento was forced to make a very tough decision to cancel the 2019 Great Scott Ride. 

Due to another year of insufficient funding and support, there will NOT be a Great Scott Ride in 2020. 

Keep your eye out for other May is Bike Month activities throughout the region.  

2018 Great Scott Recap!

2017 Great Scott! Bike and Walk Event


Q. What was the Great Scott! Bike and Walk Event?

A. More than 30 miles of beautiful country roads, centered around Scott Road, where only cyclists and pedestrians are permitted for 7 hours.

Q. Can I ride the route anyway?  

A.  For 2020, the ride is canceled.  This means all roads will be open to traffic with no restrictions.  The lack of shoulders and the number and speed of cars on the road do not make this route safe for the casual cyclist.  If you decide to ride the route, you do so at your own risk, just as you do anytime you ride your bike - or drive your car for that matter.
