Humboldt Randonneurs


June 16: Humboldt Bay 200K

A newly revised version of Bear River Ridge, the Humboldt Bay 200K, will be run for 2018. The start/finish is at the Arcata Community Center.

The route first heads around the Arcata Baythe bay, crossing the bridge into Eureka - a good stop to fuel up before continuing around the south end of Humboldt Bay and up to the tip of South Jetty; then countinue south to Rio Del befor the big climb up Bear River Ridge for spectacularly rewarding views and vistas as we travel toward the coast and out to Fleener Creek Overlook; then back to the historic town of Ferndale and a final hump over Singely Hill before returning to Arcata.

(note: this route is under review by RUSA and subject to change - a final GPS route and cue sheet will be sent out to all registered riders Friday, June 15th)



June 23: The Unknown Coast 300K

The second brevet for 2018 will be the Unknown Coast 300K, a fabulously scenic route, if a bit challenging! Starting and finishing in Arcata, the route will travel through the historic town of Ferndale before the first big climb out to the Lost Coast and around to the little town of Petrolia and Honeydew, then climbing over Bull Creek Flat and descending into magnificent stands of old-growth red woods and continueing up the Avenue of the Giants along the Eel River to Miranda before the turn-around and return to Arcata.
