Road cyclists and mountain bikers are finding their way to Siskiyou County in increasing numbers, and why not?

Quiet, lightly trafficked roads and abundant dirt trails offer both tranquility and lung-searing bicycling challenges - enough that one of the west's toughest one-day bike rides find its home in Siskiyou County: The Shasta Summit Century (135 miles, 16,500' of climbing).

Off-road and on-road cyclists will find an endless variety of rides are available, including those packed with challenging terrain, incredible scenery and solitude.

Single day rides? Challenging multi-pass extravaganzas? Multi-day cycling tours? All here. And all intriguing.

Ride miles of singletrack. Blast down Mount Shasta's extreme downhill trails. Ride rustic roads up mountains. Or simply cruise past the cattle ranches and hay fields of the valleys.

No matter where you ride, you'll never want for a view - or a new cycling challenge.
