There’s nothing more exciting in the world of cycling than that last mad dash to the finish line, the all-out leg clobbering final push that separates the meek from the mighty.
Red Bull Bay Climb is a straight line sprint up the historic, near vertical Potrero Hill in San Francisco that promises to deliver those end-of-race moments for all involved.
San Francisco is home to some of the steepest streets on the West Coast and brave competitors will face a .32-mile sprint up vertical grades, the steepest topping out at 20.62%.
The race is divided into two categories: Fixed (single gear) or Open (any two wheel bike). Each category has a male and female division with one major rule: the bike must be human-powered — no electric bikes allowed.
There are no bleachers or seats available. Spectators are invited and encouraged to bring camping chairs if they would like. However, beach style umbrellas and pop up tents are prohibited with the exception of registered athletes/teams set up in the athlete area.
Red Bull Bay Climb is free to the public. All spectators are invited to attend at their own risk. The event is not responsible for injuries to persons or property due to your attendance. By entering the event area you assume these risks.
Due to there being a limited capacity in and around the event area, the event organizer, in conjunction with the San Francisco Police Department, reserve the right to close access to the event area at any time to ensure the safety of all guests. This event will run rain or shine.
