Why ride the Incarnation 100?
Not only does it benefit the homeless, it promises to be a great ride for all types of cyclists, from those that are avid to those that are more recreational!
- The 32 mile route is a leisurely ride through the oak-studded farmland and rolling vineyards between Sebastopol and Santa Rosa. With minimal elevation gain and lots of shady trees, it is an ideal route for recreational cyclists.
- The 45 mile route which is fairly flat, passes through Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley and West Sonoma County with course highlights of Westside Rd, Wohler Bridge, and historic downtown Graton.
- The 100 km route has been redesigned for 2019’s ride promising a beautiful and challenging ride that takes you over Chalk Hill Road and Alexander Valley before cycling through the Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys.
- The 100 mile route that is a challenging, grand tour of Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Russian River Valley, and West Sonoma County, with the inclusion of Sweetwater Springs Road—a secret favorite of many Sonoma County cyclists— which skirts the entrance of Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve.
- And then there is the AFTER PARTY!!! GOURMET MEAL! LIVE MUSIC! AMAZING WINES AND BEER! We are grilling tri-tip and veggies.

Live Music at the Incarnation 100 After-Party!
Noon – 1:00 pm: The Big Three
The Big 3, with Don Neely playing sax and clarinet, Bill Reinhart on banjo, and Robert Young playing bass sax, provides music from the first jazz era: 1920-1930. Based in the New Orleans tradition, you might hear songs from the American song book, classical paraphrases, hymns or show tunes all exuding a fun and positive vibe. Why don’t you question their answer?
1:00 – 2:30 pm: Rick Fitch
Returning again this year is one of our favorites, Rick Fitch, who will be singing solo and playing harmonica and guitar. Rick, who is usually seen playing with the local Band of Friends, displays a wide musical variety ranging from old classic country, to Folk, Blues, R&B, and Rock & Roll. There’s something for everybody!
2:30 – 4:00 pm: Lee Vandeveer Band
The Lee Vandeveer Band brings a wide variety of musical and artistic influences together to create a rockin’ American Fusion sound that blend’s blues, psychedelic rock, country and elements of jazz into a powerful bundle that gets your body moving and your mojo grooving. Lee Vandeveer’s songs and lyrics invite the listener on a journey through biographical tales of joy, sorrow and resistance. Lee’s vocals are delivered with the power and honesty of someone who’s lived it. Chipley Trombley (drums/vocals) brings an infectious, joyful rhythm to the music. Bassist/vocalist, Baylee Russell brings his groove sensibilities to the music and delivers a fat sound that lays a deep pocket and foundation for the LVB sound. Guitarist/vocalist, Ryan Weiss brings an edgy and powerful guitar sound to the LVB. From the heat of the hills to the cool of the coast, you’ll want some of this jam on your toast!
