The Roland Mazzotti Snowbird Century is one of EBC's most popular events.  Named after the late Roland Mazzotti, beloved by his colleagues and fellow members for his down to earth humor, love of all things cycling, and dedication to EBC.  We honor the memory of Roland with this ride each year. We have something for everyone, experienced road cyclists can choose from the 100 mile century or 62 mile metric century.  Or have fun cycling with your family or friends on our 40 mile route.  The 30 mile route allows beginners and touring cyclists an excellent option. For this year's cycling event your participation supports Denito's Ride for Kids. Come out and ride with us!
