    Cycling on City Streets Should Not Require Bravery

    Making Cycling Safe for Everyone

  • 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

  • Understanding Cyclists' Positions on the Roadway

    The American Bicycle Education Association has created a video to help understand cyclists’ positions on the roadway. This video illustrates the safety concerns of cyclists using the road, and how the bicyclist’s position on the roadway can dramatically increase or decrease the most common crash types.  The 11-minutes video can be viewed at  https://vimeo.com/272643165

    The Institute for Police Technology & Management is using the video in its “Pedestrian & Bicycle Safety High Visibility Enforcement” course commissioned by the Florida Department of Transportation. The mission of the American Bicycle Education Association is to provide the best education and resources available for cyclists, transportation professionals, law enforcement, educators and the general public.
