Road Routes

What makes Klamath County such a great road cycling destination? Three things: excellent weather, diverse and scenic routes, and low vehicular traffic with mostly generous shoulders. The Klamath basin enjoys more than 300 days of sunshine each year. Get your daily Vitamin D while you ride over mountain passes, through rolling farmlands or meander the high desert landscape on the bountiful roads dotting Klamath County.  Our inviting roads allow you to pick from the easy 9-mile Lake of the Woods ride to the grueling 90-mile Ashland Loop that hooks up with the Cascade Siskiyou Scenic Bikeway. The “MUST RIDE” is Crater Lake!

“I like riding in the Klamath region because it is so open, there’s almost nobody on the road here. We have a huge variety of roads, long climbs and long flats, and no matter where you go there’s very little traffic. Its been a constant joy to discover new routes, I’m still finding roads I haven’t ridden before and I ride several thousand miles a year. And we have the most gorgeous scenery . It’s so dramatic, you can see it wherever you are riding!”

-Zach Gilmour, Owner Zach’s Bikes, Klamath Falls
