“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, Manager Hutch’s Bicycles, Klamath Falls
“My husband I have been avid riders for years, and now with a family we continue to enjoy mountain biking, road biking and BMX. We love that Klamath Falls has the amazing Moore Park, just a mile from downtown and are really excited about the new Spence Mountain trail system going in near the lake. You can take off and ride from anywhere in Klamath and personally, I am pretty fanatical about just riding from my house straight down Old Fort Road. It has great elevation changes, smooth gravel, few vehicles, and the feeling of being in the forest. It’s perfect for my family, because I am getting a workout instantly when I leave, and I don’t have to factor in travel time. The road riding options in our area are practically endless. There are super scenic roads going around the lake, and in every direction from town. There are countless combinations of roads to make a new ride easy to plan. The boys have become involved in BMX at the BMX track off of Anderson Street. The BMX track and team that runs it is a tremendous resource in our community.”Allison Andrews, Mom and President of Ecosolar & Electric Klamath Falls
“I’ve been riding and racing bicycles (sans training wheels) since I was two. Over the years I’ve become an avid road, mountain and gravel rider with the good fortune to ride all over the world… from the hills of the Dolomites, trails of Colorado and throughout Oregon’s roads and single track. And honestly I’ve never ridden in a place as accessible, diverse and fun as Klamath Falls. From the challenging and scenic “backyard” trails of Moore Park to the growing network at Spence Mountain or Brown Mountain or all of the ‘epic’s’ within an hour of here to the endless scenic asphalt ribbons that role through the Southern Oregon Cascades and high desert there’s something for everyone.”Adam Burwell, Co-founder of Lost Cascades Bicycle Club and Product Engineer at Jeld-Wen.
