  • Siskiyou Velo Thanks volunteers for 2nd Annual Up and Down Ride

    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.
