State Scenic Bikeway Coming to Southern Oregon
Do you know that Oregon was the first state in the US to initiate a State Scenic Bikeway program? Recently Jenna Stanke spearheaded a proposal to have our iconic Mountain Lakes Loop designated as the first Scenic Bikeway in Southern Oregon. The route has been approved by the State Committee, but there are additional hoops to jump through. The Ashland Chamber of Commerce has recently approved the concept, and the next step is a public meeting to present the proposal to the public and answer questions. The meeting is Sep 30 at 6 pm at Pioneer Hall in Ashland. We should all attend the meeting to show our support and to ask any questions you may have.
