Meal Service

After you finish, a delicious catered hot meal will be served in the Cafeteria area of the Gavilan Student Center. The cost of the meal is included for riders wearing their Tierra Bella wrist band. Others wishing to eat may purchase a meal in advance. Also, Coffee and breakfast items will be available for purchase before 10:00 AM at the Gavilan College cafeteria.


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.
