Redding’s riding scene will have you California dreaming
Redding is hard to beat for great riding of every variety. That's why we're here to help guide you to the cream of the cycling crop with our curated list of routes vetted by our shop staff and awesome customers!
Nestled within the scenic Shasta Cascade region, Redding gives road, mountain, and gravel riders alike a chance to get in some epic elevation gains. Gravel riders looking to explore miles of unpaved paradise can enjoy grit and good times in Shasta-Trinity National Forest or Lassen National Forest, while trail tamers searching for off-road adventures have access to an entire mecca of mountain biking thanks to the Redding Trail Alliance. And if it's a scenic paved route you're after, a popular northern ride over the Shasta Dam delivers a stunning cruise for any road warrior.
For those who like to keep it casual, the Sacramento River Trail, running alongside its namesake and into the center of downtown, is the perfect route to enjoy a relaxing spin with the whole family. Add over 300 days of sunshine, and it's clear to see why cyclists are always sporting a grin while rolling around Redding.
