The Cycleland organization has been around since 1981 and continues to bring good old-fashioned racing and entertainment to motor enthusiasts in the greater Chico area. With two separate tracks, a dirt flat track and a dirt motocross track, there’s a race here for everybody.  Located about 14 miles south of Chico on the corner of Nelson Road off Hwy. 99, it is a short jaunt down for an evening of racing and a good time. If you have never been to any racing events this is a great place to start, with friendly fans and plenty of excitement for the whole crew, you will not go home disappointed. They hold their races on Saturday nights on the flat track, and on Sunday for the motocross fans. Adult tickets to the motocross/outlaw races are $10 dollars, and Children under 12 are $5.  If you want to become a member the dues are $25 for the season. If you want to race, it’s $25 to enter the motocross event as an adult, and $20 for a pewee entry and practice days. The parking is free and more information about either the track or the races is available by calling (530) 342-0063 or visiting their web site at Come on down and bring a friend, we can’t wait to see you at the races!
