This premier event offers scenic routes, uncluttered roads and friendly people!
Fall River Mills is nestled in a pristine northeastern California valley. The area offers many opportunities to ride in solitude with commanding views of two of California?s famous volcanoes: Mt Shasta to the northwest and Lassen Peak to the south. We?ve planned a spectacular ride for you on a great route that capitalizes on this and other scenic wonders of the area.
This year we are offering the 25 mile ride for $25, a ten dollar reduction. The short ride consumes less, so it ought to be cheaper. We hope this will bring more riders of all ages and skill levels to the event so we can infect everybody in the whole world with the bike bug!!!
Modified Routes, Better Pavement!
This year's century and double metric routes have been changed slightly to take advantage of newly widened and rebuilt Highway 299. Check it out!
Pancake Breakfast Before:
The Willis Hollenbeck Post, American Legion, will make a pancake breakfast available the morning of the ride at a modest price. Expect a hearty, excellent meal!
New menu for the after-ride feast! Look for a variety of choices that will satisfy your cravings after a long ride through our gorgeous area. Updates will be posted as soon as the details are available. We'll be sure to cook enough chow for your guests too. For a modest extra fee they can join you in this delightful meal.
Everybody may start at 7:00 am (no later for the two longer rides). 100k riders must start no later than 8:00 am, and 25 mile riders must start no later than 9:00 am.
We'll be riding from the Inter Mountain Fairgrounds again this year, located in McArthur, about four miles East of Fall River Mills. You will have green lawns for your tents free of charge, and a very relaxed atmosphere. There are large trees and plenty of room for everybody. Don't miss out on a great time hanging out with great people!
Fall River Mills is on State Route 299, 72 miles East of Redding. Travelers coming from the North should travel SR 89 South from Mt Shasta, then East on 299 about 11 miles.
This event is organized by volunteers that happen to be avid cyclists. We are not affiliated with any other organization or club.
