Jamboree Rides featuring Super Century

The 2nd Annual Shasta Wheelmen “Jamboree Rides featuring Super Century” is being held at Foothill High School in Palo Cedro, California, which is 8 miles east of Redding. This area is ringed by snowcapped mountains on 3 sides, with volcanic Mt. Lassen to the south east, volcanic Mt. Shasta to the north, and the foothills to the west (including Shasta Bally) that include the Trinity Alps. We received rave reviews from the riders that participated last year. The Shasta Wheelmen have been putting on Century rides for 44 years, and until 2013 the event was called the “Jamboree Century”. This area features range land, farms, flowing streams, and stands of oak, pine & cedar. This area also has many roads that that are lightly traveled, and our routes follow many of these lightly traveled roads. Our routes are crafted to appeal to a wide range of riders, from the 26 mile relatively flat ride that affords a view of the mountains on all sides and the scenic 41 mile ride that is mostly flat, to the 126 mile Super Century, which is one of the more challenging rides in California designed with the diehard biker in mind.
