  • Annual Meeting - Rescheduled to 12/10

    I’m disappointed to report that the Club’s Annual Meeting scheduled for 10/11 has been postponed. There were just too few members registered for the event to make it work financially.

    The Board has rescheduled the event to Wednesday evening, December 10th, at Howiee’s in Medford (details and updates will be included in the Club’s Newsletter, Facebook and website as they become available). We hope that date will work with your schedule and that you’ll still be able to attend. Registration link.

  • Rules of the Road

    The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition released a great new educational video about the top 10 rules of the road. The sidewalk rule, mentioned in the video, is unique to California but otherwise the content is applicable everywhere. Take a look and always follow the Rules of the Road.

  • Bikes, Brews and Boogie at Annual Party

    Get your dancing shoes on for this year’s Annual Party on Saturday, October 11, 1:00 – 6:00. As you noticed, we changed the season of our party to avoid the extreme weather last December. The great  dance band, Colonel Mustard, will be playing starting at 2:00 in Wayne Evitts’ barn at 4923 Hwy 66 (just past mile marker 4 on the left) Ashland. (See map.)

    The Club is hosting the music and a lavish bar-b-q, and guests are encouraged to bring a favorite side to share as well as a bottle of wine or beer.  You must RSVP  ASAP so that we know how much food to buy.

    Ride or drive: bring your friends and  dance partners; be prepared for fun!

    We will have a very short meeting to elect the Board of Directors for this upcoming year. Any members who would like to come for the meeting only are encouraged to do so at no charge.

  • Board Meeting Oct. 1

    The next Velo Club board meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 1 at 7:00 p.m. at Caldera Brewery at 590 Clover Lane, Ashland. All members are welcome to attend.

  • OR99 Highway Plan Comments

    The Board, in its memo, praised ODOT for planning three-lane cross-sections for several sections of OR99. Even still, the Club has a long list of recommended improvements to ODOT’s Draft OR99 Rogue Valley Highway Plan, May 2014. Please forward your comments to Ian Horlacher. Emphasize, in your remarks, that OR99 is the only high-speed bike commuter route connecting all the communities in the Bear Creek Valley and that it should include bike lane designations throughout its length.
