The 17th Annual Mt. Adams Country Bicycle Tour (MACBT) will be another glorious opportunity to ride the beautiful Mt Adams Country with well marked routes, rest stops, safe sag support, and of course wonderful weather. You can choose from the 11.5 mile Family Fun Ride (Trout Lake Valley), the 51 Mile Loop through Trout Lake, BZ Corner, Glenwood, and back, the 54 Mile Forest Loop (up and down the flanks of Mt Adams) and the combined 105 Mile Infinity Ride (51 + 57 ** revised mile loops). Each well-marked ride takes you on quiet country roads through some of the most beautiful countryside around
** Because of major damage in 2016 on USDA forest roads 23, 90 & 88, the Forest Route is completely impassable by bicycle. As of June 2019, a loop route is not possible due to two large washouts on FS 88. Prior to winter of 2018-2019 it was possible to dismount and walk a bicycle. We are recommending riders ride the forest route as two out-and-backs.
We will be offering 5 ride options this year: Super Century, Full Century, Mountain Metric Century, Valley Metric Century, and a Half-Metric Century. The rides will follow one or both of two loops – one to the south of Mt. Shasta and one to the north.
All rides start and end in the beautiful Mount Shasta City Park. Here, the headwaters of the Sacramento River emerge from the base of Mount Shasta in its purest and clearest form. You will be treated to the best tasting drinking water the world has to offer! Bring a jug with you and fill up for later! With grass and shady trees, relax along the river in this heavenly location and enjoy what we hope is one of the most enjoyable bike rides you ever experience!
BSG showcases the mountain communities of Watauga and Ashe counties. We offer a very challenging 95-mile route and a 45-mile route that is shorter on mileage but still big on challenge. Both routes include epic area climbs. The 95-mile route features the famous Snake Mountain climb. More route details including map links and gpx file downloads are HERE.
Registration includes admission to The Oregon Garden, live music, a fully supported ride with delicious stops along the route and a gourmet dinner with unlimited wine and beer.
The entire course is paved and features plenty of climbing. It’s a fun ride, but if you’re an avid cyclist, we invite you to add some fun by competing in the Elite category!
RATPOD starts and ends each year in Dillon, Montana. Registration for RATPOD is open to individual riders who are welcome to ride as much or as little of the route as desired. Riders who choose to ride only part of the 127-mile route are responsible for their own logistics and transportation between Dillon and their alterate start/finish location(s). There are five food/water stops along the route, as well as pre-ride block party (Friday evening) and post-ride food and festivities (Saturday night) following the ride at the start/finish on the University of Montana-Western campus in Dillon.
