    Bicycling on Southern Oregon Streets Should Not Require Bravery

    Making Bicycling Safe for Everyone

  • Interesting article on Bike Culture in Seattle

    Biking in Seattle is a way of life. Here’s a look at our deep-rooted bike culture.

  • Why every cyclist needs a pool noodle

    From Quartz.com:

    I’ve discovered a life-saving device that allows cyclists to protect themselves and take back the road: the pool noodle.

    Find one for about $2 anywhere: dollar stores, shopping malls, even the supermarket. Choose from the array of fun colors and use a bungee cord to strap this light, flexible toy to your bike rack so that it sticks out to the left side (or the right side, if you’re in a country where cars drive on the left). Start pedaling and watch as car after car moves over to the other lane.

    The pool noodle may look silly, but since strapping it on our loads, it has made our lives safer every day. (Plus, it’s a fun conversation starter at pitstops, and it also reminds us not to take life too seriously.) On roads with zero road shoulder, the pool noodle becomes our shoulder. It makes us more visible to passing cars and the 18-wheelers that used to skim us constantly.

  • Ride of Silence

    Siskiyou Velo will host the annual Ride of Silence Wednesday in acknowledgment of bicyclists who’ve been killed or injured.

    The ride is an annual reminder to drivers that bicyclists are vulnerable road users and the importance of all road users to follow the law; especially Oregon’s Safe Passing law (ORS 811.065).

    Wednesday, May 16, 2018
    7:00 PM to 8:00 PM
    Start & end location: Hawthorne Park, Medford, Oregon

    Please arrive 15 minutes before departure time. Meet in the Park parking lot off of Hawthorne Street near East Jackson Street.

  • Siskiyou Velo BBQ is Saturday, June 8

    Hey gang we finally have some great riding weather and it’s time for us to get together for the Annual Siskiyou Velo BBQ so mark your calendars for Saturday, June 8th, 11-2. Back by popular demand, Master Griller John Fries will be flipping burgers and grilling dogs. We will have all the delicious fixing and sides to accompany Johns masterpieces.

    This year the BBQ will be held at Creekside Estates (4601 S. Pacific Hwy, Phoenix) Club House/Pool area, located about a quarter of a mile from Blue Heron Park and about a mile from Colver Park. Parking is limited so please start your rides at either location. Our new Bike Corral will be set up at the BBQ for your bike parking convenience.

    Guests are always welcome to our social events, so bring a friend along or somebody that might be interested in joining our club.

    If you have any questions I can be reached at 541-944-1569.

    Hope to see you at this year’s BBQ.

  • Velo Melos hit the roads

    The sun was shining and the temperature warm which meant a perfect day for a Club group ride. Nine Velo Melos, with Viki Brown as ride leader, explored the beautiful, quiet roads around Eagle Point while logging 25 miles of riding with 975 ft. of climbing. For some, it was a “getting back on the saddle” ride after some winter downtime and for others just a chance to ride with some friendly company. A break at Chamberlain Park gave us a chance to refill water bottles and have a friendly chat with a local police officer who stopped by on his rounds. We enjoyed a great view of Mt. McLoughlin on much of the ride. Join the fun and turn out for one of the many group rides going out every week. Thanks to Lan Roberts for the photo snapped from her seat on the back of the tandem behind her husband, Jeff Roberts, Velo Webmaster.
