Join us for a ride through Lassen Volcanic National Park. We'll get an early start to beat the traffic in the park and enjoy the scenic views and challenging climbs. This is a favorite among most.
We'll meet at the Morgan Summit parking lot at 8:15 a.m. and provide ride details and group instructions before rolling out. We'll begin at an easy pace of 15-16 mph as we climb the gentle rise to the park and acclimate to the elevation. Regroups on the ride will be announced, but the out'n back route allows everyone to enjoy the ride at their own pace and snap pictures if desired. Be sure to bring a helmet, 2 bottles of water, fuel, sun screen, money and flat-fixing essentials. Restrooms are available at Morgan Summit, and restrooms & cafe items are available at the South Entrance. Entrance fees apply, $12 per bike, or $80 for a season pass. FYI - 3 cyclists can accompany someone with a senior pass... so bring those passes! Afterward, we gather at Mill Creek for a sandwich on the deck, before heading back to Chico.
