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

Making Bicycling Safe for Everyone
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

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

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.
