Susanville, CA, May 15, 2013 Beginning on June 1 and running through October 19 on the first and third Saturday of each month, the Bureau of Land Management, Lassen Land and Trails Trust and members of the Susanville Area Bicycle Association team up with Lassen Rural Bus to provide a shuttle for your bike in combination with a bus ride to the trailhead of your choice along with all the support you need for a great adventure.
According to a press release today, you can put your bike on the bike shuttle and hop on the bus to Devil’s Corral trailhead for a leisurely approximately 7 mile ride down the trail’s 3% grade back to your car at the historic Susanville railroad depot visitor’s center.
If you’re more adventurous, chose Fredonyer Pass for an 18 mile ride or chose Westwood/Mason Station for the full 28- mile experience.
For those who want a challenge, take the newly-built South Side trail off the Bizz for climbs and great single track finishing up on a timber road down to Hobo Camp and the main trail to the depot.
Advanced registration can be completed by calling the Lassen Land and Trails Trust, at (530) 257-3252. Cost is $7 per person and bike to Devil’s Corral and $8 per person and bike to either Fredonyer or Westwood/Mason Station.
The registration fee includes the bike shuttle and bus fare. Advanced registration closes at 5p.m. the Wednesday prior to the scheduled Bike the Bizz shuttle.
On-line registration after that time is $10 per person and bike. Day-of registration is $10 per person and bike is strictly on an ‘as available’ basis.
The Bizz Johnson National Recreation Trail is managed jointly by the BLM and Lassen National Forest with support from the non-profit Lassen Land and Trails Trust, a regional conservation, open space and recreational trails organization.
