Lassen Ale works will be serving beer at the finish line of the Downieville Classic, which has been named one of the top 10 best bike festivals from Outside Magazine. Its a weekend of racing and partying in the Sierras where riders have to pick one tool for two disciplines: a 29-mile course follows a rugged "Gold Rush" era route from the mountain town of Sierra City, is one of the last remaining point-to-point bicycle races in the United States. The Classic is followed by the Downieville Downhill, which drops 5000 vertical feet in 15 miles from Packer Saddle to Downieville. It's the longest and most demanding downhill mountain bike race in the nation. Not a racer? Not to worry. Nearly as famous are the Ron's House of Big Air River Jump, the log pull competition, and a soundtrack of live music.
