Planning is underway for the Rotary Club of Mount Shasta’s 3rd annual “Castle Crags Century” on Saturday, June 20, 2015. Last year’s ride was a huge success with over 300 cyclists pouring into the community. This year’s attendance is expected to be around 400.
Mount Shasta Rotary Club is organizing and sponsoring the event with the help and support of Mercy Medical Center Mt. Shasta. 50% of the net proceeds will be given to Mercy Foundation North for the benefit of the hospital Auxiliary’s free transportation program and the balance of the proceeds will support Mt. Shasta Rotary’s local trail- building efforts. There are a variety of sponsorship opportunities available. Please contact Alisa Johnson at 530.926.9318 for sponsor information.
The one day event is not a race, and will offer 4 ride options for riders, including a 97 mile Century ride and 62.5 mile Metric Century ride, which will feature a dynamic and incredibly scenic route over Mumbo Summit and around Castle Crags. The ride will travel through Castella along the Sacramento River through Dunsmuir and back to the City park for lunch. The Century riders will continue after lunch along the same route the 34.5 mile “Half Met” riders will take, heading out Old Stage Road and continuing through Edgewood, around Hoy Road, returning through Weed. There will once again be a “Gone Fishin’” ride option of 10 miles with a stop at the Sisson Museum for a little local history and a short visit to the fish hatchery.
All riders will enjoy rest stops along the route, SAG support, medical support, lunch in the park and a post-ride meal with local microbrew, live music, and free massage from the students at Marinello in Redding.
