Winter Blues Cruise – Sweet Beet Station

December 10, 2023 @ 12:00 pm

Free

This is a call to bring your family! Bring your friends! Bring your spark! And bring your Bike/ eBike!

Commence the Winter Blues Cruise! It’s that time of year where everything gets dark early, and it can be a little harder to stay motivated to ride. What better way than to get out with other people, enjoy the beautiful Rogue Valley, and meet up for some great food, fun, or both! This week I wanted to take you on a ride to Sweet Beet Station!

Route info! We’ll meet at Ashland Electric Bikes at 11:45 a.m. At noon we’ll go over some basic traffic and group riding rules, do some call-and-response stretches to warm up (a good friend said that we’re not a group unless we do something cringey together!), and then we’ll ride out to the Bear Creek Greenway, which will take us to Sweet Beet Station in Talent! The ride there is about 8.5 miles one way, and it is mostly flat! We’ll be riding there and back. All who ride with us are encouraged to ride as a group, however you are welcome to ride ahead, behind, join on the route, or meet us there!

There will be 2 regroups: 1. at the Ashland Dog Park (relief room available,) 2. Lynn Newbry Park in Talent (relief room available. *Note: This relief room was closed for our last ride. Here’s hoping it is open for this one!) Reverse regroups when heading back to Ashland!

***Check out our meetup at the URL provided, and please RSVP!***

***Important!
Bring money for food and beverage! And remember your bike lock!

Note: This is a not an Ashland Electric Bikes event. The store owner has agreed to have the shop open, on non-business days, before and after our rides to allow folks a place to gather outside of the cold, use the facilities and grab any last minute items they might have forgot. There will be a waiver that we ask everyone to sign making sure they acknowledge this point.

There is no Support And Gear (SAG) wagon! Please arrive with your protective gear, as well as a tube(s)/pump/tools for the ride in case the ride goes awry! Ashland Electric Bikes (AEB) will have gear and tools available for purchase at the start, as well as the end of the ride.

Also!

We ride rain, or shine! This is the Winter Blues Cruise! Step away from your domicile and become a bit feral! Here’s looking forward to seeing you there!!

Oregon permanent standard time bill survives after Senate splits

An effort to switch Oregon to permanent standard time will live to see another day after hitting a temporary roadblock on Tuesday when the state Senate split evenly on the bill. Supporters agreed to amend the bill to add a trigger clause clarifying that Oregon would only ditch daylight saving time if and when Washington and California do the same.
