  • Central Oregon Rides

    Anyone thinking about doing the scenic bike trails based around Bend and Redmond/sisters Oregon will enjoy a few shots of our adventures there.

    In case you aren’t aware, five of Oregon‘s scenic Bikeways are based around the Bend/Redmond/Sisters area.

    A group of us stayed at Eagle Crest in early September and had 4 days of great riding. We met at Shevlin Park for an abbreviated “Twin Bridges” ride on day 1. Day 2 involved major shuttling organization for the 37mi Sisters to Smith Rock ride. Day 3 saw us leaving Sisters to tackle the McKenzie Pass. The final day due to time constraints and possible smoke in Madras the remaining 4 repeated the Twin Bridges ride before heading back to the now smoky Rogue Valley. These rides were all on lightly traveled primarily country roads with shoulders or bike lanes.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

  • Wildfire Recovery for Cookie Webb

    Cookie Webb escaped the devastating fires in Phoenix, Oregon this week with just her car, purse, and phone.  Her home along with the entire Creekside community burned to the ground.  She has lost everything that wasn’t in her purse.

    Cookie is a frequent ride leader of Slo-Mo rides, much appreciated by many Siskiyou Velo members.  Please donate to help her out if you can.  Her son has set up a GoFundMe page:
