Cantrall Park Loop
The route up to the top of Cantrall Road is strenuous but worth the effort. You climb through thick fir forests mixed with madrone trees. The average gradient of the climb is 8.9% wi...
Galice to Wolf Creek Loop
Ride goes from Galice Resort to Wolf Creek. This is a scenic route along the Rogue River and Graves Creek for much of the route. There are many miles on Graves Creek Road that is a si...
The Lakes Loop
The Lakes Loop is a great training ride in the weeks before the Mountain Lakes Challenge (MLC). It incorporates all of the really hard parts of the MLC and still gets in roughly 50 mile...
Crater Lake Loop
This is probably the classic ride in Southern Oregon. It brings everything a rider could want to the table. It's a short 33 mile loop around the lake with several options for start...
Butte Falls Prospect
The Butte Falls/Prospect Loop is an amazing ride into the cascades. It has some good climbing - nothing that will break the legs - and superb scenery. Traditionally the club rides will...
Triple Peak Challenge
Looking for something a bit out of the ordinary? Try riding to the top of Dead Indian, Mount Ashland and the Greensprings in one day. The total elevation gain for the 92-mile thigh-burn...
Conde Creek Loop
The Conde Creek Loop is one of the harder rides the Club will run each year. It is very similar to the Cedar Flats/Deer Creek Loop in that it is generally a rolling/flat ride with one v...
The Woodrat ride is a great intermediate length loop that quickly takes you out of the populated Rogue Valley into a forrested rural area. The ride is roughly 46 miles with 3000 feet of...
There aren't many places around with views like you get on the Mt. Ashland Road. Once you clear the initial mile you are thousands of feet above the landscape below and the horizon...
Applegate Dam via Sterling Creek
This route leaves from Jacksonville and starts to climb immediately on Cady Road. Once at the top of Cady you make a left onto Sterling Creek Road. The climb from Jacksonville to the...
The ride to Applegate Lake and back is possible at just about any time of the year, it just so happens that it's about the best moderate length ride to open the season in the sprin...
Ashland Watershed Loop
Nothing about this ride is ordinary; the road is single-lane decomposed granite, the route is remote (like cycling in the wilderness), and the surrounding landscape is breath-taking. Yo...
Salmon River Loop
If any ride speaks to the rugged beauty of the State of Jefferson, the very challenging Salmon River Loop does it in spades. This 100 mile loop is in the middle of one of the least deve...
The road to Anderson Gap is one of only a few paved one lane roads that climb into the mountains above the Bear Creek Valley. It does this in spectacular fashion. I enjoy hard climbs. A...
Cedar Flats/Deer Creek
Experienced cyclists who've exhausted all of the possible rides and loops in the Medford/Ashland area may not be aware of this very challening loop south of Grants Pass. Like the C...

July 22, 2017 brought approximately 100 hearty cyclists to Emigrant Lake in Ashland, Or to begin a 49 or 80 mile ride up into the high lakes country on the Up and Down ride. Siskiyou Velo served as a co-sponsor for this event and also provided a group of dedicated volunteers who helped make the ride possible. A big thanks goes out to the following:
John Grimbergen- SAG driver
Ginny Jensen- Daley Creek rest stop
Willi Zilkey- Daley Creek rest top
Lisa Brill- Daley Creek rest stop
Lan Roberts- Dead Indian Memorial rest stop
Jeff Roberts- Dead Indian memorial Rest stop
Sandra Wetzel- signage
Jay Harris- graphic design
An extra special thanks goes out to the two Club members who served all year on the ride planning committee and also played critical roles on the day of the ride: ML Moore and Matt Walker. ML was a lead on the planning committee, coordinated registration and worked on a number of logistics issues in addition to greeting and encouraging riders at the start and finish lines. Matt Walker also served on the planning committee, coordinated and physically moved all of the supplies and equipment needed to equip the multiple rest stops AND rode the 80 mile loop. The ride would not have been possible without their contributions.
And finally, a big thanks to all the Club members who turned out and did the ride. Covering the miles on a bike is what the whole event was about. Until next year and the 3rd annual-keep enjoying the miles.
