Bicycle Tours in May

If you haven’t taken a bicycle camping tour and would like to try one, here are three, one night tours that can quickly tell you if bike touring is the adventure for you. There’s a possibility that a SAG wagon will be included on one or all tours.  Details on food and other aspects will be answered by contacting Phil Gagnon.

A tent, sleeping bag and pad are essentials along with panniers.  Craigslist is a novel place to start your search for these items if you don’t have them.  (And if bike camping doesn’t appeal, you can resell them on Craigslist.  How about that?)

May 1 – Applegate Lake Tour: Start in Ruch and ride 16 miles to overnight at Hart Tish Park on Applegate Lake’s shoreline.

May 16 –  Rogue River Tour:  Start at Bear Creek Park in Medford and ride 24 miles to overnight at Valley of the Rogue State Park.

May 30 –  Fort Klamath Tour:  Start at Fort Klamath and ride to Chiloquin for lunch and overnight at Collier Park. 16 miles.
