KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — For the fifth year in a row, bicyclists will take to the rural roads of Klamath Basin—from Siskiyou and Modoc Counties in California, to Klamath County in Oregon. The event will take place on Memorial Day weekend, May 26 and 27.

The Art of Survival Century Bicycle Ride springs from local organizations throughout those counties, in an effort to showcase and promote community involvement in the historical heritage and natural beauty of the area—not to mention fitness, family and fun.

The event features a variety of curated courses for cyclists of all ages and levels of ability. The smallest is an 8-mile paved family route (happening on Sunday), and the largest is a 112-mile trek that loops between the outskirts of Klamath Falls and the Lava Beds National Monument in California.

A full set of interactive maps are available on the Art of Survival Century website.

Rest stops along some of the courses feature many of the historical or geographically significant landmarks of the area—Lava Beds National Monument, the Butte Valley Wildlife Area, and a variety of historic sites or working farms and ranches. There are also special activities, such as a Bicycle Rodeo.

Attendees can find lodging and other local activities here.
