Malin Community Service Club Presents:

The Art of Survival Century

May 25, 2024, Malin, OR | May 26, 2024, Dorris, CA

The 11th Annual Art of Survival Century Bicycle Ride isn’t just about pedaling a road or mountain bike through beautiful stretches of county side. It’s also an opportunity to learn about a region that includes Southern Oregon’s Klamath Basin and Northern California’s Tulelake Basin and Butte Valley area.

What is unique about this event—which is a ride, not a race—is that at each rest stop offers educational components and/or ranger or historian led talks highlighting the cultural history, geography, environmental issues and geology of the area.  Along with providing fluids and nutritious snacks at the rest stops, riders will have opportunities to learn about the areas they’re passing through.

This year, we honor the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway.  Embark on a journey along the Volcanic Legacy Scenic Byway, an awe-inspiring All-American Road winding through the captivating landscapes of Southern Oregon and Northern California. This extraordinary route, distinguished as one of only 42 in the United States for its unique qualities, offers a 500-mile expedition through the remarkable aftermath of geologic forces along the Pacific Rim of Fire.

Traverse this scenic masterpiece, where towering volcanic peaks, expansive lava flows, enchanting caves, bubbling mud pots, and steaming fumaroles paint a vivid picture of the Earth’s dynamic history. Immerse yourself in the natural wonders of Crater Lake National Park, Lava Beds National Monument, the alpine charm of Mount Shasta against a snow-capped backdrop, and the captivating beauty of Lassen Volcanic National Park.

As you navigate the route, find yourself surrounded by majestic mountainous forests, expansive wetlands, crystal-clear streams, and picturesque farms and ranches. Beyond the captivating volcanic features, your journey unfolds with great roads, charming towns, and a tranquil pace of life—making every moment along this scenic byway a truly unforgettable experience.
