Cascade-Siskiyou Rendezvous

Hey all,

we’re excited for this weekend, and hope you are too. Registration is closed and as of now there are 45 registrants. Below you’ll find some important info and reminders.


  • Check in is after 4 p.m. on Friday September 14th. We must be out of the campground by 11 a.m. on Sunday the 16th.

  • If you don’t have a cabin or RV site booked, the tent camping is dispersed and first come first served, meaning there’s plenty of room for everyone but there are not designated tent sites.

  • Fall decided to happen this week! It should be lovely riding weather but the lows are projected to be in the upper 30’s! Remember, the campground is at 4,500 ft. Be sure to bring plenty of layers and warm clothes.

  • Unfortunately the fire ban will most likely be in effect which means no campfires, so be sure to read the info nugget above.

  • Your registration includes a post ride meal, dessert, and two drink tickets.  All other meals and snacks you’ll need to bring with you. More drink tickets will be available and the proceeds go to the Maslow Project.

  • We will have a raffle this year and there are some great prizes. Your registration includes one raffle ticket but please buy more! We will have them available and the money goes to the Maslow Project.

  • PLEASE bring a reusable plastic or metal pint glass or container. We will have disposable drinkware but we strongly encourage you to bring your own reusable container if you have one.

  • Group rides will leave Saturday morning at 10 a.m. If you’re showing up Saturday morning please get there early enough to set up before the ride, or just plan on registering after the ride. You can ride earlier if you’d like too, or later.

  • There are three routes, a 75 mile mostly gravel, 46 mile mostly gravel, and a 35 mile paved (with one mile of dirt). The courses will be marked, there will be GPX tracks available on both the website and Facebook event page, and cue sheets the day of the ride.

  • There are no organized rides on Sunday but that shouldn’t stop you from getting more miles in. There is day use parking at the Klum Landing and Willow Point campgrounds at the lake.

  • There are horseshoes on site but feel free to bring any games you have, i.e. bocce or cornhole.

  • Well behaved dogs are allowed.

Anderson Ridge Honey Badger

This route utilizes paved and hard pack dirt roads to connect new and existing single track. Stunning views towards the Red Buttes and the Coastal Range will be had. This route is by far harder than any HB in 2018 and will be best on a mountain bike or gravel bike with 40mm tires or bigger. Yes, it can be done on a CX bike but you most likely will regret it. 

We will meet up at the Sweet Beet Station Cafe in downtown Talent where you can fuel up for the ride with some delicious breakfast and coffee. The ride will start at 9 a.m. so if you plan on eating there get there early. Post ride food and beverages can be found at the Sweet Beet Station, The Pumphouse or The Grotto.

Short Route

30 miles 3,600 ft. elevation

Long Route 

50 miles 6,000 ft. elevation

Norcal Honey Badger

This year we will offer a new route for the Honey Badger Norcal, but expect to ride some pavement and some dirt (but more dirt than pavement). There will be a long route and a shorter route. Cross/gravel/mountain bike required. Links to the route maps are below. No fee to ride, contact us with any questions/concerns.

Long route: ~50miles/5,500 ft. elevation gain

Short route: ~30 miles/3,500 ft. elevation gain

PLEASE READ IMPORTANT INFO: We'll meet at Yreka park on Miner Street, there are bathrooms here but no water. Both routes start from Yreka park, we'll roll out at 10 a.m. and will be riding counter clockwise. This way we will get the pavement out of the way and save the big climbs for the end! The first 12 miles are paved and on highways. PLEASE be careful and aware of cars, I don't expect a lot of traffic but the locals also won't be expecting a bunch of cyclists on these roads, ride single file when there are cars approaching. At mile 7 there is a dirt spur which is optional, that takes you down to the Shasta River. It is super pretty but the short two track road down to the river is narrow and rocky, if you're on skinny tires or not comfortable on this kind of terrain just skip it and continue on HWY 263. If you take the spur to Hudson Rd. be aware that the end of the road goes through private property with several homes very close to the road, I've ridden this twice recently and have seen (friendly) dogs and home owners, please ride slowly and be courteous. HWY 263 T's into HWY 96 where we will turn left and ride HWY 96 for two miles before crossing the river onto Klamath River Rd. Here the pavement (mostly) ends and the real fun begins. This road has little traffic but again it is narrow and the locals don't see cyclists on it often, please ride cautiously. At mile ~15 the short route turns left onto Humbug Creek Rd. The long route continues until turning onto Yreka/Walker Rd. at mile ~28. Both routes come back together at the intersections of Humbug Rd. and Yreka/Walker Rd. There are several intersections that may be confusing, because the course IS NOT MARKED you'll need to rely on GPS. There will be an aid station on this ride thanks to Jefferson State Mountain Bike association (JMBA). It will be located at the OHV park on Humbug Creek Rd. mile ~39 on the long route. If you're riding the short route you'll have to go off course and turn right onto Humbug and ride .2 miles to get to the OHV parking lot. Water and snacks will be provided.

Honey Badger Strada Biancha

  • 120 South 11th Street Montague, CA, 96064 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

A mixed gravel/paved ride through wide open landscapes with scenic views along quiet roads. This is a good winter ride both for the distance and elevation gain, as well as having multiple points where you can choose to cut the ride short. No fee to ride, and as with most Honey Badgers you'll want a bike with at least 32mm tires (wider is better!) and a GPS (or buddy up with someone who has one). There is public parking at Cowboy Statute Railroad Park.

This route will not be marked, so you'll want to have the GPX file downloaded or ride with someone who does. The suggested routes which you can find GPX tracks for are below. As already mentioned there are a options to make the ride shorter. By taking Ball Mountain Little Shasta Road or Lower Little Shasta Road you can out about ten miles making the shorter loop just under thirty miles in total.

Long Route    

  • 52 miles/3,200 ft. elev

Short Route

  • 40 miles/1,700 ft. elev.

Even shorter

  • 27.5 miles/1,300 ft. elev.

Shasta Valley Honey Badger

A scenic ride along mostly dirt roads in the shadow of Shasta. This year we've altered the route a bit. There is a ~35 mile loop with optional bonus loop that will make it ~54 MI . You'll want at minimum a 32mm tire (no don't ride your road bike) and a bigger tire is ideal, as there are some loose and muddy sections to this route. No fee, just bring a good attitude, lots of layers and be ready for a headwind (possibly both directions)! The ride starts and ends at Mt. Shasta Brewing Co. in Weed. Please give them some business in appreciation for letting us park in their lot. WE WILL RIDE AT 10 AM.

Routes:

SHORT (37 MI 1,770 FT.)

LONG (54 MI. 2,300 FT.)
