Kicking Off A Scenic Bikeway In Style

Up & Down Ashland
/

  Getting into the mountains can yield some spectacular views.  Getting into the mountains on a bicycle can get you the views and a lot of exercise. 

Such is the nature of the Oregon-designated Cascade Siskiyou Scenic Bikeway, rising into the mountains from the Rogue Valley floor. 

The inaugural event on the bikeway will be the Up & Down ride--advertised as "not a ride for the faint-hearted"--on July 23rd.  Jenne Stanke Marmon, Bicycle and Pedestrian Program Manager for Jackson County Parks, visits with details of the bikeway and the first big ride on it.
