  • Bikes N Brews

    The Brisk group did the Stout ride in the Bikes N Brews bicycle ride on October 14th.  This is a multi-route bicycle ride sponsored by the Downtown Medford Association.  The Stout ride is the longest ride and is 67 miles.  The route takes riders into Gold Hill and out into Sam’s Valley before returning to downtown Medford.  There were multiple aid stations along the way staffed by excited individuals.  These were well set-up, and all riders appreciated the aid and support of those at these rest stops.   Seven of us were in the Brisk group for the ride and the weather was very good for the route.  We observed the annual eclipse on the first hour of the ride and were able to see it due to a heavy blanket of fog without the normally necessary glasses.  After the eclipse, the sun came out and warmed everything and made the rest of the ride very enjoyable.

  • First Annual(?) Siskiyou Velo Septuagenarians’ Birthday Ride October 1, 2023

    Phil Kolczynski, Ride Leader, designed this 79.5-mile moderate ride with only 3,000’ of climbing to recognize all club Septuagenarians’ birthdays this year. Click here for the route.

    Younger riders invested their extra miles in a longevity account.

    Seven cyclists left Jacksonville to ride at 8:00 a.m. We cycled an eight-hour round trip to Grants Pass, had lunch, and returned – 7 hours of pedaling time.

    Hopefully, we’ll do another ride like this in 2024.

  • Please Volunteer for the Bikes n Brews Event October 14

    Siskiyou Velo will again provide bike parking for cyclists participating in the October 14 Bikes n Brews event at Pear Blossom Park in Downtown Medford.  Please consider volunteering to help with this event–it’s fun and offers a chance to meet other club members and to promote our club to the public.

    Bike n Brews is part of the Heart of the Rogue Festival, which showcases our community–there will be music, food, drink, art and vendors.  For more information on the festival, go to https://www.travelmedford.org/heart-of-the-rogue-festival.
