The 6th Annual


We would like to thank everyone who participated in 2014.

About the Challenge

The Clark's Corner Cycling Challenge was founded in 2010 by Clark's Corner. This event was designed as a way to give to charitable causes, promote business in the City of Ione and County of Amador, encourage community wellness, and share the amazing cycling we have around Ione.


I am so excited that Chris Horner is coming back to Ione. He is incredibly gracious and generous with his time to ride with us.”

Most Outrageous Season Ending Ride, EVER. He actually allows you to ride in his pace line. At the end of a long ride season you actually can live the dream of riding with a GC tour rider and an more importantly an incredibly gracious man.”

I cannot imagine a more fun way for any bicycle enthusiast/fan to spend some time. The dinner is great and the stories are better. The summer heat is gone and the roads are gently rolling. Chris is incredible, his wife who joined him last year is also a delight. You will not regret one minute of the time spent at the Dinner and or the ride.”

We can't imagine not doing this event every year - everyone has a great time. Chris is as grounded in person as he is on TV...and just as chatty! There's a ride for everyone - you don't have to be an expert rider or have a gazillion dollar bike to have fun.
