“I like riding in the Klamath region because it is so open, there’s almost nobody on the road here. We have a huge variety of roads, long climbs and long flats, and no matter where you go there’s very little traffic. Its been a constant joy to discover new routes, I’m still finding roads I haven’t ridden before and I ride several thousand miles a year. And we have the most gorgeous scenery . It’s so dramatic, you can see it wherever you are riding!”

-Zach Gilmour, Owner Zach’s Bikes, Klamath Falls

At the same time, there’s more hiking, more kayaking, more outdoors, more adventure, and… well—there’s just MORE in Klamath County. More to do, more places to be, and more things to see. So, without
