Siskiyou Century/Siskiyou Scenic Bicycle Tour

Greenhorn Park Lake, Yreka, May 2017
Mount Shasta from Shasta Valley
Copco Lake

We had a great event on May 4th, 2019! We had perfect weather and all went well. Thanks to everyone who participated, riders, volunteers and all. We hope that you join us again in 2020 on May 2nd. The website will be updated soon with all the new information for 2020. We will probably use the same routes again in 2020, but after that we will probably go to new routes to highlight other areas of our beautiful county. Please feel free to give us suggestions.

The Siskiyou Century is being revived as the Siskiyou Scenic Bicycle Tour and will be in the Spring, to avoid wildfire smoke. The ride will be May 4th, 2019. The ride will feature an 81 mile loop around Irongate and Copco Lakes, with 9.2 miles of gravel in various spots along the route. There will also be many all pavement routes, 69, 38, 21 and 8 mile routes. The rides will all start and finish at Upper Greenhorn Park in Yreka. There will be a great meal at the end of the ride with beverages and music to cap off your day. We look forward to seeing you then! The 2 long rides will start at 8am, all others at 10am. Camping available at the park for $15/night. Multiple rest stops and sag wagons on all routes. Historical information pamphlet. The 81 mile route has 4,692 ft. of elevation gain. Look at the maps and route descriptions!!!

All bikes are welcome, including electric bikes. Picadilly Bikes out of Ashland, OR will be at the event with demo electric bikes to try out in the afternoon. 

May The Fourth Be With You!!!

      1. The 8 mile route starts out at Upper Greenhorn Park and winds through the town of Yreka. The route map is on the website under the heading of maps. I hope that you are able to join us for this ride. Sincerely, Christal Duncan

    1. Next year you need to have a map to get to camping and map to get to registration area. Most of us from out of your area have no idea how to find park and camping. Also your website about the park should have a road map for in the park. I could only find the trails. If you are bringing an RV you don’t want to drag it around and get stuck in a dead end area.

      1. Thanks for your suggestion. There is only 1 Greenhorn Rd. in Yreka and only 1 entrance to Upper Greenhorn Park. It is a loop so you will not get stuck. The registration is at Upper Greenhorn Park. Pre-registration packet pick-up is Friday May 3rd between 5-7. We will direct you to the area where you will set up your RV then, which will be at Lower Greenhorn Park. Take exit 773 off of I-5. Turn West- you will see a Black Bear Diner and a stop light. Turn North on S. Main St, go about 1/4 mile, then West(left) on Greenhorn Rd. About 1/2 mile the park is on the left. Turn into the park. It is a loop. If you WAZE or Google direction it you will find it. See you next week! The weather is slated to be 72 degrees and sunny. Sincerely, Christal Duncan, event director

      2. Yes I agree completely! If we come down next year we will bring our travel trailer and will need exact directions for those very reasons you mentioned.

    2. Description for 38 mile ride mentions three rest stops, but map only shows two. Which is it? Hoping there’s one within 8-12 miles from start.

      1. Jerry- there are 2 rest stops for the 38 mile route. At Little Shasta Church and at the Montague Railroad Museum. They are both great stops. Of course you can stop anywhere along the route if needed. I will fix that description. In past years there has only been 1 rest stop for this route. Thanks for letting me know. Sincerely, Christal Duncan, event director.
