RideKlamathRide.com features incredible bicycling opportunities in the Klamath region, which spans from Crater Lake National Park to Lava Beds National Monument at the Oregon/California border. The diversity of scenic landscapes, abundant wildlife, lack of traffic on roads/trails, and average of 300 days of sunshine per year, make this region a high desert, mountain, lake and forest wonderland for bike enthusiasts.
