Siskiyou Scenic Bicycle Tour

October 03 2020
Yreka, California, USA

The Siskiyou Century has been revived as the Siskiyou Scenic Bicycle Tour and is taking place in the Spring rather than the Fall to avoid wildfire smoke. Siskiyou County is also much more beautiful in May than in September. We changed the name, as we may not have a 100 mile ride each year, as we plan to change the routes each year to highlight different parts of our amazingly beautiful County. We will have 6 different ride lengths this year, including a Century All rides start and finish at Upper Greenhorn park in Yreka, California. All have multiple rest stops and sag wagon support. All have views of stunning Mt. Shasta, >14,000 ft, rising from the Valley floor. The start of the rides will have a mass start with a police escort through the town od Yreka.

The 103 mile route is new this year. The ride goes up to Copco Lake on the Klamath River then winds through Shasta Valley, with great scenery. This ride is all pavement. 5,029 ft. of elevation gain. Gorgeous views of Mt. Shasta.

The 90 mile ride goes out to Shasta Valley then along the Klamath River, and around Irongate and Copco Lakes, with amazing scenery and wildlife. It follows the 81 mile route from last year with a little more challenging areas and more gravel. There is 5,807  ft. of elevation, with 14 miles of gravel along various parts- mostly packed gravel- the rest is pavement. Rollling hills mostly with 1 fairly steep section at Irongate Dam, and 1 steep section in Shasta Valley.

The 68 mile ride goes through Shasta Valley then up to Copco Lake, and back through Shasta Valley- gorgeous scenery! Rolling hills. 4,363 ft. of elevation gain

The 38 mile ride goes all through Shasta Valley along cattle ranches and farms, and has great rest stops, at historic Little Shasta Church, and at the Montague Railroad Museum. 1295 ft. of elevation gain. Rolling hills with flat portions. 

The 21 mile ride goes out to Shasta Valley, Montague and back, and is a great beginners long distance ride. 947 ft. of elevation gain. Rolling hills and flat portions

The 8 mile ride tours the town of Yreka, and is for everyone in the family. A slightly different route than last year's event. Only 423 ft. of elevation gain.
