Road Biking

Welcome to the Plumas County, California, road biking page. Please scroll down for information on bike rentals, a local bike club, and bike events in Plumas County. Miles and miles of backcountry roads in and around the county's quiet communities appeal to road bicyclists of all ages.  Check a county or community map or ask at visitors centers for the safest, most scenic and best-known routes.

The Plumas-Sierra Bicycle Club hosts rides throughout the county on both paved and unpaved roads.  Visitors are welcome! Be sure to check out their Facebook page.

The Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship group is a volunteer driven non-profit whose primary goal is the maintenance and enhancement of the trail systems in Plumas and Sierra Counties. Their excellent map highlighting the varied terrain and world-class trails of the Lakes Basin trail system is available for $15.00. 

And in case you don't yet know about it, Adventure Cycling Association has wonderful routes and maps for the whole Sierra Cascade area available
