Sign up for bicycle and walking updates from the Shasta Cascade Bicycle Coalition and Healthy Shasta. Updates will feature information about creating a more bikable/walkable community, trainings, opportunities to volunteer or get involved, as well as fun information about walking and biking in our community.
Go Outside and Play!
Redding is the second sunniest city in America according to The Weather Channel. In other words, there's hardly a day that isn't a great day to go outside and play! So put down that remote, put on your tennis shoes and head outside!
Shasta County has an abundance of outdoor recreation options available. With an impressive network of walking, biking and hiking trails and a wide variety of parks and playgrounds, opportunities abound! Not to mention Whiskeytown National Recreation Area within minutes of downtown. Whether you go to a park, hike a trail or play in your own backyard, you'll feel great when you go outside and play!
