Post Ride Meal is Served

Coffee and breakfast items will be available for purchase at the Gavilan Collage cafeteria before the ride. After you finish, a delicious catered hot meal will be served to riders wearing their wrist band.


Professional massage therapists will be offering muscle-rejuvenating massages at rides end at Gavilan College. The therapists will charge their customary fee and will accept payment only in cash.

Notice To Unpaid Riders

The Tierra Bella is limited to 2000 riders because of constraints on parking, food, support logistics, and most important, safety. We will be actively screening for unpaid riders on the day of the ride. All riders must wear wrist bands.

If you aren't registered for the Tierra Bella, we ask that you choose a different route for this weekend and trust that you will understand.


We hope we've been able to answer all of your questions about the Tierra Bella Tour. But if you still need some information, please consult our FAQs or contact us:

Rules Of The Road

For an enjoyable day while riding the Tierra Bella, please use common sense and courtesy while you are on the road. To help ensure your safety and the safety of others, we remind you:

Remember this is a tour, not a race or an endurance event. Please choose a route which matches your riding capabilities.

You must obey all rules governing vehicle traffic on public roads.

California Vehicle Code rules will be enforced by local police and the CHP.

You must:

  • Ride Single File On All Roads
  • Pass Only When It Is Safe
  • Stop At All Stop Signs
  • Control Your Speed On Descents
  • Ride Defensively
  • Share the road with cars

Other Things To Remember

It is the rider's responsibility to bring a bicycle in safe working condition. You should carry a water bottle, a spare inner tube and patch kit. It's also a good idea to bring a snack in case you are hungry before rest stops.

Always carry identification and an emergency telephone contact and phone number.

Minors under the age of 18 must ride with a responsible adult. All minors must carry the Medical Release Form signed by a parent or guardian (see application). Helmets are required by law for minors under the age of 18. ACTC club policy requires every rider, regardless of age, to wear an ANSI-approved helmet.

No alcoholic beverages are permitted.

Do not leave your bicycle unattended. ACTC is not responsible for lost or stolen property.

ACTC reserves the right to refuse participation to any rider not conforming to the rules listed.
