Greensprings Keno Access Loop
This loop will take you through some very scenic areas around two lakes in the cascade range before you get onto the Keno Access Road. The Keno Access Road does a gentle climb up to a...
The road to Anderson Gap is one of only a few paved one lane roads that climb into the mountains above the Bear Creek Valley. It does this in spectacular fashion. I enjoy hard climbs. A...
Butte Falls Prospect
The Butte Falls/Prospect Loop is an amazing ride into the cascades. It has some good climbing - nothing that will break the legs - and superb scenery. Traditionally the club rides will...
Cantrall Park Loop
The route up to the top of Cantrall Road is strenuous but worth the effort. You climb through thick fir forests mixed with madrone trees. The average gradient of the climb is 8.9% wi...
Galice to Wolf Creek Loop
Ride goes from Galice Resort to Wolf Creek. This is a scenic route along the Rogue River and Graves Creek for much of the route. There are many miles on Graves Creek Road that is a si...
The Lakes Loop
The Lakes Loop is a great training ride in the weeks before the Mountain Lakes Challenge (MLC). It incorporates all of the really hard parts of the MLC and still gets in roughly 50 mile...
Applegate Dam via Sterling Creek
This route leaves from Jacksonville and starts to climb immediately on Cady Road. Once at the top of Cady you make a left onto Sterling Creek Road. The climb from Jacksonville to the...
Crater Lake Loop
This is probably the classic ride in Southern Oregon. It brings everything a rider could want to the table. It's a short 33 mile loop around the lake with several options for starting l...
There aren't many places around with views like you get on the Mt. Ashland Road. Once you clear the initial mile you are thousands of feet above the landscape below and the horizon open...
Cedar Flats/Deer Creek
Experienced cyclists who've exhausted all of the possible rides and loops in the Medford/Ashland area may not be aware of this very challening loop south of Grants Pass. Like the Conde...
The Woodrat ride is a great intermediate length loop that quickly takes you out of the populated Rogue Valley into a forrested rural area. The ride is roughly 46 miles with 3000 feet of...
The ride to Applegate Lake and back is possible at just about any time of the year, it just so happens that it's about the best moderate length ride to open the season in the spring. It...
Salmon River Loop
If any ride speaks to the rugged beauty of the State of Jefferson, the very challenging Salmon River Loop does it in spades. This 100 mile loop is in the middle of one of the least deve...
Ashland Watershed Loop
Nothing about this ride is ordinary; the road is single-lane decomposed granite, the route is remote (like cycling in the wilderness), and the surrounding landscape is breath-taking. Yo...
Triple Peak Challenge
Looking for something a bit out of the ordinary? Try riding to the top of Dead Indian, Mount Ashland and the Greensprings in one day. The total elevation gain for the 92-mile thigh-burn...
Conde Creek Loop
The Conde Creek Loop is one of the harder rides the Club will run each year. It is very similar to the Cedar Flats/Deer Creek Loop in that it is generally a rolling/flat ride with one v...

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.

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:
