The Paskenta Century or Paskenta
By: Jason Boynton, Folsom Bike/VW/Raley’s
The Paskenta Century or Paskenta as it is referred to is a long standing ride/race that starts in One Mile Park in Chico, takes a counterclockwise 100 mile route through the Northern Valley and ends in North Chico. The ride is always held on Super Bowl Sunday and is an unofficial show-up and ride event that is put on by NorCal bike race celeb and all around great guy Rodney Cox. Rodney is a true champion of amature cycling and has literally put on thousands of free races in the Chico area through his Chico R.A.C.E series.
