Art of Survival Century 2020
September 5 - September 6
The 7th Annual ART OF SURVIVAL CENTURY BICYCLE RIDE (AOS) takes place on Memorial Day weekend; SATURDAY, September 5-6, 2020. This event is a collaborative effort of many local entities and non-profit organizations designed to showcase our rich historical heritage, our many natural resources, and our agricultural community. Plus promote Fitness, Family and Fun! The setting for this unique ride is in one of the most beautiful and undiscovered parts of Siskiyou and Modoc Counties in California and Klamath County in Oregon.
What is unique about our event is that at each rest stop we offer educational components and/or ranger/historian led talks highlighting the history, geography, environmental issues and geology of the area. All routes are light on traffic and have mostly flat terrain, which is great for early season cycling.
We offer multiple routes in multiple lengths and on multiple surfaces.
NEW THIS YEAR
Plan to spend a few extra days in the region. We have a new historical adventure to explore: self guided audio tour “MODOC WAR: A HOMELAND LOST.”
Join Modoc descendent Cheewa James on a riveting and epic driving journey through the historic sites of the Modoc War, starting from Klamath Falls, Oregon to the Lava Beds National Monument in California. Along the way you’ll discover the roots of the Modoc War, hear Modoc and settler stories, and learn what life was like during this turbulent episode in American history.
Whether you ride a bicycle, or not, there will be activities for you and your family at our event on both days, September 5-6, 2020.
