Friday Rides, all leave from Steen Sports Park.
Guided Self Supported Ride (Mystery Route) – 1:00 PM Distance to be decided
This ride leaves from Steen Sports Park at 1:00 PM. You will be led by a local rider. While there is no sag or food support for the ride, our guide will make sure you get back to the Park. The distance of the route will be determined by the riders who show-up. This is a no-drop ride done at a casual pace with a usual distance of 25-35 miles, but could be longer depending on the group.
Self Supported Rides
Airport to Moore Park Loop—on your own 35 miles +1050’ elevation
A nice ride around the airport with a hill climb on HWY 140. There are good shoulders on the HWY for most of the route. The ride back on Lakeshore Drive takes you around the lake and back downtown.
Airport Loop—on your own 34 mile +846’ elevation
Similar ride to the Airport to Moore Park loop but cuts off the section on HWY 140 and around the lake. On Greensprings Dr., you’ll be treated to a great view of the downtown and waterfront. Be sure to stop-in at our sponsor, Discover Klamath, to learn more about the community. Jim Chadderdon is a great supporter of riding and you’ll love the visitor center. Spoiler alert: we will be traveling on some of these roads July 3rd.
Running Y Ride 35 mile +1700’ elevation
This is a favorite of local riders because it goes around the lake and much of the ride is in a residential area. Be sure to check out the stores at the Running Y Ranch
Monday Rides on the Klamath West Side Leaving From Steen Sports Park
For the past 2-3 days we’ve been traveling in southern and eastern Klamath County and Northern California. Today you will go to the Westside of Klamath County
Guided Ride on the West Side Distance to be decided
This ride leaves from Steen Sports Park at 9 AM. You will be led by a local rider. While there is no sag or food support for the ride, our guide will make sure you get back to the Park. The distance of the route will be determined by the riders who show up. This is a no-drop ride done at a casual pace usual distance is 25-35 miles, but could be longer depending on the group.
Self Supported Rides on the West Side
Hamaker Mountain Out-And-Back—on your own 50 miles +3510’ elevation
This is the shorter of the two routes to Hamaker Mountain. You will ride on HWY 66 with most of the route having an ample shoulder. There is a portion of HWY 66 before turning into Keno where there is no shoulder. The ride up the mountain is 10 miles and starts in Keno. Local riders love this ride because the road was resurfaced almost all the way to the top about 5 years ago and is only lightly traveled. Only the last ¼ mile is bumpy. The view from the top is spectacular. At its peak in the 1960’s, Hamaker Mountain served as an Air Force radar site, but today it is abandoned. The ride up the mountain averages a 5%. grade
Hamaker Mountain Loop II—on your own 68 miles +3600 elevation
This route to Hamaker Mountain is exactly the same as the out-and-back. However, when you descend into Keno, you turn right and return to Klamath via Keno Warden Rd and Township Rd. This is my favorite route back to Klamath after riding Hamaker. It does add 18 miles, but the road is rolling and not traveled much.
Keno Township Loop—no Hamaker Mountain—on your own 49 miles +1100 elevation
This is the same route as Hamaker Mountain Loop II but doesn’t climb the mountain.
Monday Rides Near Crater Lake National Park
These routes require you to travel by car to start your ride. There isn’t a great way to the starting points for the rides via bike. It’s recommended you drive to Rocky Point via HWY 140 W to begin the Westside Rd route. You should also drive to Crater Lake Park via HWY 97 N to begin the Rim ride. Use the west entrance to the park by turning left on to HWY 62.
Westside Road Ride to Fort Klamath Loop—on your own 48 miles +1200’ elevation
Unlike the Rim ride, there is only +1200’ of climbing. This route uses the Volcanic Scenic Byway, which was a finalist this year for consideration as an Oregon State Scenic Bikeway. You’ll start the route close to Harriman’s Resort and Rocky Point Resort. These are two different resorts about 1.5 miles apart. Make sure to have lunch after your ride! If your legs are starting to talk to you, this is a great route to ride, have lunch, and then drive around the Crater Lake Rim. Or borrow a page from Jens Voight; “shut-up legs”, and ride the Crater Lake Rim Ride below!
Crater Lake National Park Rim Ride—on your own 32 mile +4000’ elevation
This is an advanced level ride rated very difficult. The 32 ride around the rim is one of my top 5 rides in the world. You will climb over 4000 ft in the 32miles. You should bring a camera and lots of water. The preferred route is to leave from the Park headquarters. Another option is to leave from Rim Village. Both departures should follow a clockwise rotation. Once you leave Rim Village there will be no water stops.
