  • Ride to Open Streets Oct 12

    I led a short ride on the new section of the Larson Creek Path, to the Greenway and the Medford Open Streets event. We had 5 adults and 3 kids for our extra-Slo Mo ride.

    The Mail Tribune covered Open Streets in the Oct 13 edition.

    Also check out a short video, with an appearance by the OSU cheerleaders at the SV Bike Valet and booth (at the end you can see Ann Smith, Harlan Bittner, and Jen McCracken.

     

     

     

     

  • Slo-Mo Ride from Asante to Open Streets 10/12 10:30am

    This is a short (3 mi) and slow (10mph) ride from the Asante parking lot on Black Oak @ 10:30am,  to Medford Open Streets on Oct 12 from 11am-2pm.  If you’re going to Open Streets you can drive to the Asante lot and bike to the Open Streets event.  There will be a Bike Valet run by Siskiyou Velo to safely park your bike while you enjoy the event.   Riders who are not Siskiyou Velo members will need to sign the waiver.  See the route here.

    We’ll start at the Asante Work/Health Rehab Services lot on Black Oak, ride the new section of the Larson Creek Path to the Greenway, and then exit the Greenway at Jackson to Open Streets at 3rd St and Bartlett St.  Jackson will have traffic control in place. If you can volunteer as a sweep for this ride, let me know by email to: webmaster@siskiyouvelo.org.

    I’ll lead a return ride at the end of the event @ 2pm, but anyone who wants to return earlier can do so on their own.

    Open Streets will have many activities including live music, Zumba, a Bike Safety Demo from Siskiyou Velo, and a bike rodeo for kids put on by the Medford Police Dept.  Open Streets has Bartlett St closed from Pear Blossom Park to Liberty Park.  See their website: https://www.medfordopenstreets.org.

    We also need Siskiyou Velo volunteers for the Bike Valet: respond to advocacy@siskiyouvelo.org.

    Hope to see you there!

  • Velo Melo Ride- August 31, 2019


    13 eager riders turned out for this fun 27 mile ride in Sams Valley on a perfect summer day. We climbed a few hills (1,300 ft) with minimal complaints. Photo taken at our refreshment break at Rainey’s Market. Two riders not in picture are Wil Thomson who left early and ride leader, Viki Brown, behind the camera. Rees Jones managed to duck behind someone else in the photo so he is also is not visible. A warm welcome to Derek Matthews who is new to the Club and on his first ride with this group. He is excited to be a member and looks forward to more group rides. Remember to show up for the Ice Cream Social ride on Saturday, Sept. 7 at Colver Park. Phil Kolczinski will lead the Melos on a ride starting at Colver at 8:30 am.
