Each Spring/Fall when Lassen National Park is going to open/close the road they have a car free day, both the north and south entrances are closed to vehicular traffic. This is an amazing thing because riding through Lassen with tourist driving RV's can be a bit intimating for some people, the grades may be long but they are not terribly steep, all and all it makes for a great ride! The park does not get a lot of notice when they do this because it is all weather dependent. 

So we promoted it. 

Check out this Hyperlapse of the first part of the south side decent!

Just a few Instagram's from a perfect day 

Lassen National Park was at the summit snapping some pics of people at the top! 

It was a great day out there perfect weather, it was wonderful to ride with old friends and got to meet a lot of new people, I ran into a bunch of people from Chico, a good handful from the Bay Area and Sacramento as well. I would guesstimate that there were between 100-150 people out on the road today! Let's tell Lassen National Park thank you by sharing our ride photos on their wall. Keep an eye out on Ride Redding for the Spring event!
