  • Medford Park(ing) Day Sept 21, 2018

    Park(ing) Day 2018 is a globally recognized event in which Cities across the world turn park(ing) spaces into parks! On Park(ing) Day people attempt to rethink urban form and the use of parking spaces. Parking represents one of the largest public spaces in most cities yet we devote it to cars, not people.

    See the full description including an application for you or your group’s park(ing) space.

     

  • Wednesday stop at Oregon Mountain Coffee

    We say goodbye to Autym, one of the owners of Oregon Mountain Coffee, our usual stop on the Wednesday ride. The owners have sold the business. But Autym assures us that the new owners will welcome us. Best wishes to you, Autym, in your new adventures.

  • Glacier Ride

    The three amigos shown here at the top of the last major pass in Washington state.  The tour was a west to east trip from Sedro-Wooley to the top of Logan Pass in Glacier National Park and then back to Columbia Falls, MT.  We traveled the North Cascades Hwy for much of the travel through Washington.  We covered 870 miles and climbed 44,000′ on our trek.    We had 4 days of rain while on our trip but most occurred while we were in our tents.  One particularly bad day we were out riding in a downpour for 2 1/2 hours.  This was a leg from Libby, MT to Eureka, MT and covered 78 miles along Lake Koocanusa.  I love touring and would go again even with the adverse conditions we saw that day.

  • Volunteers needed July 22 for 1-2 hours

    The club has a storage unit in Ashland.  After the Up and Down ride I will need 2-3 people Sunday morning to help unload the rental truck, and put the signs and coolers back in the storage unit.

    The road signs are made of wood and weigh about 25 pounds each, so being able to lift those is a must.  If you can give me a hand that day call or text 541-261-4891.

    Thanks,  Matt Walker
