E-biking & Cycling

All Me or Assist Me

Cycling and e-biking are two different worlds, but that doesn’t mean some paths can’t overlap. Whether you came for a tough ride or just want to cruise, we have trails for everyone. Pick your route or go with the flow. Whether you choose to do a 30 mile loop or a thirty-minute ride, we have plenty of routes here for you. Our favorite asset is the river — any time you ride by, the views won’t disappoint.

Larger Loops

The loop can be however large you want it to be. We suggest you take the “start at sundial” approach. Make your way from the bridge north to Shasta Dam. From there, take Shasta Dam Blvd to Lake Blvd. Once you hit N Market Street, it will take you back into town or pop in at Caldwell Park and ride the river trail back to Sundial.

Hunt Down Your Next Ride

For this 53 mile ride, starting at Sundial is a great option. Ride the river to the dam. From there, you’ll take Lake Blvd to Shasta Dam Blvd. You will ride through the town of Shasta Lake and continue to head out to Bear Mountain. Shasta Dam Blvd will take you to Union School Road, which takes you to Old Oregon Trail. From the Oregon Trail you will head to Bear Mountain, then to Dry Creek. Continue south to Old Alturas and go west until you reach the mall. From the Mt. Shasta Mall, you will head to the river trail — and by the end, your legs might feel like spaghetti!

Rolling Hills and Open Fields

Start at Sundial and make your way to the surrounding towns. Start by taking the River Trail East. You will pass through the Mt. Shasta Mall and make your way onto Old Alturas Rd. From there, take Boyle Rd to Deschutes, then travel to Old 44. Stay on Old 44 as it becomes Millville Plains. Take Millville Plains Rd to Dersch Rd, and take Dersch to Airport. Make a left on Airport and over the river onto Riverside Ave. From there, you can simply take 273 back to the bridge.
