The 4th Annual Art of Survival Century Bicycle Ride

The 4th Annual Art of Survival Century Bicycle Ride (AOS) takes place on Saturday, May 27, 2017 in Tulelake, California and Malin and Merrill, Oregon.  The setting for this unique ride is in one of the most beautiful and undiscovered part of Siskiyou and Modoc Counties in California and in Klamath County, Oregon.

We offer a Century (100 mile), Metric Century (62 mile), 45 mile, 20 mile mountain bike route, and a 16 mile family friendly route.  Access the Ride with GPS route maps on our website.  All routes (except 16 mile) pass through the Lava Beds National Monument, which has an unparalleled volcanic landscape with towering cinder cones, expansive black lava flows and more than 700 lava tube caves.  The park also has a rich cultural history, containing thousands of petroglyphs and pictographs, as well as the major battlefields of the Modoc Indian War.

New in 2017 – Time to see what’s on the other side of the road!  This year we will be riding the routes in reverse.  Great opportunity to CELEBRATE with us as we honor and showcase our resources throughout this event and during our post-ride festivities.  Whether you ride a bicycle or not, there will be activities for you and your family at our event on May 27th.  Our Honored California Highway Patrol will again host a Bicycle Rodeo event for the children to learn bicycle safety.  Last year 42 children participated, so bring your children and grandchildren with their bicycles and helmets to the Fairgrounds at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday for this fun activity.

The Tulelake-Butte Valley Fairgrounds in Tulelake, the RIDE headquarters, has numerous visitor services available including a museum of local history, the WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument Visitor Center, which is open to explore on Friday, May 26 and Saturday, May 27 from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm.  The Fairgrounds has RV and Camping sites with full hookups.  Reservations will be accepted by calling Linda at 541-723-3181.  Payment required upon arrival.
