  • Help Make Oregon a Safer and Better Place to Bike

    Portland State University’s Transportation, Technology and People Lab has developed a smartphone app to collect route, infrastructure, crash, and safety data for the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT). ORcycle will let you record your bicycle trips, display maps of your rides, and provide feedback regarding crashes, safety, or infrastructure issues. The pilot app can be downloaded from GooglePlay (Android) and Apple’s iTunes (iOS).

Congratulations to all! Thanks also to retiring Board Members Gordy Gilmore, Glenna VanBuskirk, and Wayne Evitts for their contributions throughout 2014.

  • Always a New Challenge

    With winter approaching you may find yourself looking for a new challenge. There are many at low elevations within a few miles of most of the communities in the Rogue Valley. Be creative and keep your tires pumped (don’t forget to do a quick-check). Dominic Barth and Matt Walker met this one, at a 33 percent grade, heads-up and crank’n.
