I don't own a car, so I cycle! :) I have a 2009 Schwinn World GS commuter bike that serves me well year around.
I joined soon after moving here in 2009 to get to make cycling friends and get to know the area.
I cycle for commuting nearly everyday for about 5 miles, but about three days a week I cycle about 10 - 15 miles to run errands. In 2011, I rode the 16 mile route for The Worst Day of the Year Ride at 7 mi/h, the 30 mile route for Petal Pedal at 12.2 mi/h, the 72 mile route for the 2011 Portland Century at 12 mi/h, and the 34.7 mile route (Big Dog) of the Tour de Lab at 10.4 mi/h.
The 72 mile route of the 2011 Portland Century although with commuting and getting lost, it was slightly more that 77 in total! Ha ha!
Right now I am training the 100 mile option for the Harvest Century. A mix of time in saddle and hill climbing would be great.
I prefer to start as close to my house in the Tanasbourne/Orenco Station area as possible due to not having a car and it takes forever to get anywhere by public trans.
Hi Shannon, what you said, and thanks for the time we shared on the dance floor. You've got some great moves. Hope to see you at one of my 80s video nights.
Hi, Shannon it was nice to meet you too. Thanks for coming out, I'm glad you had fun. See you next time.
Hi Shannon! Welcome to the group! I look forward to meeting you!
Welcome to the Rogue Valley! To answer your question, Medford gets an average of 20" of rain a year and October is considered a transition month. December and January are historically the wettest months, but even then you'll see the sun occasionally. David
