Blazing some new trails on wheels

image2I have finally made the leap into road cycling and few will be able to miss seeing the lime-green streak around the Jackson County foothills and bikeways. I have ridden Sue’s dad’s hybrid bike for three years and it was a great two-wheeler, but not so good on hills, especially with an old man in the saddle. Lots of Siskiyou Velo Club riders have encouraged me to make the change. So, why now? A book and an author. Free Country, by George Mahood, an Englishman who rode the length of Britain in a most unusual way. Find it on Amazon. Also, I have to thank one of Ashland’s finest gentlemen, Phil Gagnon, for getting me to try the bike club and road cycling.

    Way to go Reg! I loved road biking in the Chicago area & did it as often as possible, given my work schedule. I hope to find a bike club in my new home of Houston after we settle in & the heat goes down! It’s a great way to spend time outdoors so enjoy!


  7. Thanks, Nancy. All the best to you and the family in Houston!
