descriptionSo, you want everything? How about the best of everything? Lassen Adventure Gravel Ride has it ALL! We have all kinds of surfaces from primo smooth gravel to technical 2-track roads and everything in between. There are challenging climbs, fast flats and smile inducing downhills. This is not a race but an adventure ride so enjoy the spectacular scenery as you cruise through pine forests and beautiful mountain meadows. The long course will take you near the shores of two serene, high altitude lakes. We have 3 different courses to fit into all levels of riding and several well stocked rest stops. You might be thinking "Oh sure, another one of those 60% pavement, 40% gravel rides". Not our ride! The Lassen Adventure Gravel Ride is 97% GRAVEL. This is one you don't want to miss!
Start/finishAll categories will start and end at the Historic Train Depot @601 Richmond Road in Susanville. You will have a RFID chip on your bike number plate to account for your start and finish on the course.
