Humboldt County is host to a number of cycling events throughout the year. The list below includes road, mountain bike and cyclocross events.
Stormy Saddle Enduro
RCMBA's signature Event, the Stormy Saddle Enduro takes Place at Lacks Creek Recreation Area an hour from Arcata. The bike specific trails and camping accessibility make this Enduro one of our favorite events in the area.
Banana Slug Series
The Banana Slug series is an organized race/casual road ride series that goes from January through June with a ride on the second Saturday of every month. Rides range from 30-100 miles in length and travel through some of Humboldt most iconic roads.
The Stomach Churn is an annual cyclocross event that takes place in Arcata usually before January is finished. Ever heard of crailing? If not, be prepared with your bike handling and low speed skills!
Tour Of the Unknown Coast
The Tour of the Unknown Coast, TUC for short, "Californias toughest Century" takes place in May. Known for its elevation change and beautiful scenery, this isn't one to miss.
Humboldt State Cycling Mountain Bike Race
