Oregon Bicycle Ride

BRNW California

August 04 - August 11 2018
Yreka, California, USA

Let us take you some places BRNW has never been… the 2018 route includes some old favorite towns and roads, some brand-new segments, and one memorable highlight: a ride up Mt. Shasta! It’s seven days of riding in the wild, punctuated by a series of charming and quirky overnight communities. The words “isolation” and “California” may not seem to go together, but this part of the state is still a wonder of untamed natural splendor. You’ll spend a major portion of the week following twisty roads that parallel rushing rivers – our favorite riding environment. And make no mistake about it: There’s a lot of overall climbing on this route.

A significant portion of the route travels through the historic homelands of multiple Native tribes, including the present-day Hoopa and Yurok reservations. This is also the region where the most famous Bigfoot artifact – the 1967 movie clip – was filmed, and you’ll be riding through some country that’s wild enough to harbor that reclusive beast. Top it off with an optional ascent up Everitt Memorial Highway on the slopes of iconic Mt. Shasta, and you’ll know why far northern California has wanted to secede – it’s a unique place, completely unlike the more populated parts of the state to the south.

It’s somewhere you can still get away from it all – in this case, on your bike.
