​​The Lake Oroville Bicyclists Organization or LOBO, was formed in 1996 from what was the Oroville Bicycle Advisory Board.

LOBO is a non-profit organization under federal 501 (c) (7) tax code. Federal EIN: Available by request.

Lake Oroville Bicycle Organization's mission is to bring awareness that cycling benefits our health, families, economy and community, and that its fun. LOBO advocates for bicycle safety and access to California's trails.

We are active in the local community volunteering and helping where we can, some of our past activities included:

  • Cleaning up the Skate Park
  • Sponsor of the Paradise rest stop during the Chico Wildflower
  • Sponsor of the Oroville Fish Hatchery rest stop during the Challenge Fondo
  • Volunteer and support of the Oroville Salmon Festival
  • Working with the Sheriff's Office in their Christmas Bike Giveaway, helping to fit children with a free helmet

We organize rides for all levels of riders, from beginner to advanced

  • Beginner rides with no riders left behind. Normally riding at 10-12 mph. Normally riding at a flat elevation. 10-15 miles are typical.
  • ​Intermediate rides based on rider ability with meetup points, often with some hills. Speed is based on rider capabilities. 20-40 miles are typical.
  • ​Ad hoc (more advanced) rides are sometimes planned. They are usually longer or with a lot of elevation gain or both. 50-100+ are typical.

We stress bicycle safety and rules on all our rides.

We provide instruction on basic riding etiquette, safety and bicycle maintenance.
