Founded in 1987, the Lemurian Shasta Classic Mountain Bike Race is renowned for its epic loop, huge climbs and long, technical descents. We attempt to create an extremely challenging and difficult Long course, a more modest Intermediate course, and an easier, but techinical short course. In keeping with our “grass roots” mindset, we offer cash prizes and medals in the Long Course Categories, and medals to the winners of other categories. Since all riders support the race equally via their entry fee, we give away a large amount of “schwag” in the most generous post-race raffle around. In addition all racers receive a finishing pin, water bottle and a post-race meal.
The Lemurian is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit organization comprised of Shasta County, California cycling enthusiasts. We have no paid members. Our goal is to give participants the best race possible and the most value for their entry fee. All donated merchandise is given to the racers in the form of raffle prizes, and any excess funds are either support the local bicycling community or are applied to the following year’s race.
The Redding Mountain Biking Club took the hosting responsibilities in 2013, with all the board members of RMB participating in the Lemurian planning committee. If you would like to help, please contact Redding Mountain Biking Club.
The Lemurian Shasta Classic Mountain bike race is seeking sponsorships. Your support is needed to ensure the continued existence of this epic race. Sponsorships opportunities are limited, please contact us regarding the level of participation that best suites your company needs.
