  • SV business cards available for members

    Members,

    SV business size cards are now available for members.  See images below.
    Have you ever told someone about the club and mentioned siskiyouvelo.org, only to have their eyes glaze over and you know they won’t remember the URL?  The card has a QR code on the front with a helpful “SCAN ME” message for the technically challenged.  Point a smartphone camera at the QR code and “siskiyouvelo.org” appears, which is clickable.

    The purposes of these cards are:

    – Help people remember the website and have a takeaway reminder after promoting the club to them.
    – Give to cyclists you meet anywhere

    If you’re interested, here’s how you can get some:

    • Send me an SASE and say how many you want (up to 10). If interested, email me and I’ll send you the address, or get it from the club directory.
    • Wait for the next SV social event

  • Siskiyou Velo at the Ashland Bike Swap

    On April 30th, the Siskiyou Velo bike club hosted a table at the Ashland Bike Swap. We promoted the club, signed up a new member, and talked about bike safety, local rides and bike advocacy to many people. Although it drizzed lightly, a good time was had by all.

    I’m guessing that 200 bikes were on sale – kids’, mountain, electirc and road bikes – plus bike gear, helmets, etc. Stop by in 2023 to volunteer, buy or sell a bike.

    Ann, Lisa, Harlan and John at the SV table. Frank and Robin also volunteered.

  • Siskiyou Velo Members Ride the Wildflower in Chico, California

    Siskiyou Velo members enjoyed the Wildflower 2022 ride in Chico, California on April 24.  Several rides were offered, and members participated in the 30-mile, 68 mile and 100-mile versions (the 30-mile group added an extra loop to make it 40).  Congratulations to Viki Brown for completing the 100-mile ride in 7.5 hours!  It was a beautiful sunny day that started out a bit chilly but quickly turned into a warm spring day.  Some of the routes went through Paradise, California, going through the aftermath of the terrible Camp Fire from November 2018.  Many beautiful new homes have been rebuilt and there were indications everywhere of a strong recovery.
