See you next year! August 3, 2014
We had a great ride this year. The smoke blew out of Shasta Valley and the wind provided a lightly cooling breeze, but it didn’t develop into a headwind. We’ve posted some photos here, and several on our Facebook page. All the riders were very photogenic! Like us and share your photos.
We do have some Jerseys and Shirts available from this year (and a few from previous years too!). Click on the sidebar to the right to order them. We think they turned out great!
Thanks, as always, to everyone who rode and to all our volunteers.
Ride Update 7/23/2013
Thanks to everyone who has already registered! We have gotten some questions and we wanted to post the answers for everyone to see.
You can pick up your ride packet on Saturday August 3rd from 4PM to 8PM or on the morning of the ride after 5AM, at the start location in the Mount Shasta City Park.
T-Shirts/Jerseys will be available for sale along with a special addition for this year:
Riders who complete all four summits will get a special Super Century glass (on the right).
We’re looking forward to seeing you.
There’s no ride quite like the Mt. Shasta Summit Century.
We offer you the good things in life. Like challenging climbs. Breathtaking views. Lightly trafficked, rural roads. And 16,500 vertical feet of climbing over the course of 139 miles (rides of 100, 60 and 30 miles are also available).
Wrap all that in a cloverleaf route that encourages you to test yourself (you’re never more than a downhill away from home), populate the ride with the friendliest volunteers on the planet (one rest stop offered valet bike parking the last three years), and you’ve got something special.
Something like the Mount Shasta Summit Century.
Registration now open for 2013: Sunday, August 4
It’s tougher than the Markleeville Death Ride – but a lot prettier, and a better first ride for those who are new to hilly, mega-century rides (that cloverleaf route means you’re never more than a downhill away from the finish).
Our Summit Century offers 10,500′ of climbing
It’s the perfect hilly century for those ready to move beyond standard centuries.
Our Metric Century is moderately hilly – only 4,200′ of climbing in 58 miles
Our metric century offers all the views at less than half the suffering. Plus, it’s just plain fun.
Our Half Metric ride?
It’s great for families, novices or folks who’d rather enjoy the views than wrestle with gravity (it’s only 30 miles and 2100′ of climbing).
No matter which route you choose, you’ll benefit from excellent support and friendly volunteers (including an average of three sag wagons working at any one time).
Is this the year you ride one of the prettiest, toughest century rides in the west?
