Siskiyou Velo

Southern Oregon's Premier Cycling Club

Membership Meeting Scheduled for April 8

by Gary Shaff on Mar, 10 2015

The Club’s members (and the cycling public) will have an opportunity to learn about and offer feedback on a proposal to connect existing bike lanes on N. Main and Siskiyou Boulevard through downtown Ashland. That’s right. The City is beginning the process to provide connectivity through Downtown Ashland. If constructed, people riding bicycles could travel from the City’s south and north boundaries on dedicated bike lanes.

Mike Faught, Ashland Public Works Director, will share details of the current proposal at the start of the meeting. Following the presentation, participants will be asked to provide feedback on the proposed East Main project by using a workshop style process that divides participants into small groups. The workshop will help to inform the City on what cyclists think!

The meeting is schedule for 6:30 to 8:30 pm on April 8th at the Grove, 1195 E. Main Street, Ashland. Please plan to attend. We really need to show the City, by a large turn-out, that people who ride bicycles are committed to improving cycling and, more specifically, the infrastructure that supports our passion.
