“I’ve been riding and racing bicycles (sans training wheels) since I was two. Over the years I’ve become an avid road, mountain and gravel rider with the good fortune to ride all over the world… from the hills of the Dolomites, trails of Colorado and throughout Oregon’s roads and single track. And honestly I’ve never ridden in a place as accessible, diverse and fun as Klamath Falls. From the challenging and scenic “backyard” trails of Moore Park to the growing network at Spence Mountain or Brown Mountain or all of the ‘epic’s’ within an hour of here to the endless scenic asphalt ribbons that role through the Southern Oregon Cascades and high desert there’s something for everyone.”

-Adam Burwell, Co-founder of Lost Cascades Bicycle Club and Product Engineer at Jeld-Wen.
