Incoming!

Soo... End of the month I'm headed down to Ashland for the winter. The guest house I'm renting has a nice garage for wrenching on my bikes, but I'm guessing riding is going to be rather limited. Fortunately, my Aerostich makes a pretty decent ski suit. Any bike nights/toy rides/other fun things to do in the area that I need to check out?

My place is only about a mile and a half from work, so I'm giving some serious thought to picking up a used beater bike and maybe trim a few pounds of the rider module for next year.

Tiller/Trail to Canyonville until the snow flies (watch out for deer. Applegate to Grants Pass, short runs up Dead Indian or longer if you continue on to Klamath falls. Watch out for bugs around the lake! I lived in Eagle Point until I joined the Navy in1982.

So, just for reference, I'm still here! I extended my contract with the Ashland hospital until the end of July. Had to swap apartments, but the new one has a garage and AC and costs a lot less. At the moment, I'm planning on hitting the first 2 OMRRA rounds (that's as far out as my schedule goes). As much as I'm loving Mt. Ashland, I'm ready for some decent riding weather.

If there's anything in the area going on bike-wise, I'd love to hear about it. I've been known to even show up to Harley rallies with the Triumph when the mood strikes.

How has the weather been down there?
Any road reports would be welcome.
Has everything been washed clean down to bedrock?

Hahaha. Hahahahahahahaaahaha. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAAHAHAAHAAAJHAHAHAHA.

No.

Mt Ashland, last I checked, was still 9th in the country for snowpack. And looking to get another foot or two in the next few days. Pretty much any road up into the hills, you're going to run into snow at some point. And even before you hit the snow, you'll run into a shit-ton of the nasty red gravel they use for traction here on them. Pretty much, I've ridden in town when it's nice out. We've had a decent little spattering of days where it's been sunny and approaching 60deg. But the skiing is great .
