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...
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...
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...
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 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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...

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.

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.

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.
We need four volunteers at a time to manage the parking process and to man the Siskiyou Velo information table. We need volunteers for the following time slots–8:30 to 11:30 (includes set-up), 11:30 to 2:30, and 2:30 to 5:30 (includes take-down). If your availability doesn’t fit into one of these timeslots, please volunteer and let us know what time you are available.
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.
Please respond to me at email@example.com with your time availability. It will be fun!
