The Million Dollar Challenge (MDC) has earned a reputation as one of the premier cycling events in the country where individuals can use their passion for cycling to make a difference in the lives of others. An epic seven-day, 620-mile journey through quintessential California from San Francisco to San Diego.  This year’s “Trailblazer Edition” MDC is an epic new route that will challenge and transform your perception about what’s possible. While keeping to the camaraderie, first-class support and vigor that makes MDC unique, riders will experience two new days of exclusive terrain through wine country amidst stops in California’s classic seaside towns.

Every year, this journey delivers a life-changing experience for all participants. The MDC is unique in the world of cycling; it builds a community of riders with a deep and lasting appreciation for life- and for those who overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges to live life to the fullest. Helping to raise $1 million dollars for challenged athletes is deeply satisfying. But it is the journey that will change your life forever.

MDC riders not only change gears, but change lives along the roads of California, and around the world.
