June 18th is the Century Ride, Lake Almanor
Pedal around Upstate California’s Lake Almanor during this annual ride that offers varying levels of challenge. The toughest is the 108-mile “Century” ride, which climbs 3,200 feet while circling the lake and winding through Indian Valley. Or do either the “Metric” (56 miles and 1,200 feet of elevation gain) or the more leisurely “Half Metric” (33 miles), which stays by the lake.
Plumas County's premier cycling event is back! The 39th Mile High 100 Bike Ride will return on Saturday, June 18, 2022, sponsored by the Almanor Recreation and Park District in Chester, California. All proceeds will benefit district programs and events, as well as capital improvement projects with an emphasis on recreation, parks and trails.
Three routes will showcase the beauty and serenity of Lake Almanor and the breathtaking views of Lassen Peak. Distances are 33 miles, 56 miles and 108 miles, and all routes include well-stocked rest stops, rider support, catered lunches and beverages (including free post-ride beer from Lassen Ale Works). All riders will also receive a commemorative T-shirt.
Cycling is one of the best physical activities. It is so recommended and promoted especially because it targets different age groups, which makes it perfect for everyone.

While bicycles are very popular and in high demand now, this was not the case in the past. Cars are taking over, leaving this great eco-friendly option to the side.
