About

June 3 - June 5, 2022. The first weekend in June is designated Cycle Travel Weekend by the folks at Adventure Cycling. Not just another Hallmark Holiday, it's an adventure! Here's the announcement as it shows up on the Adventure Cycling Website(https://www.adventurecycling.org/resources/bike-travel-weekend/find-a-bike-overnight/?ShopClubListingsaction=bikeTravelWeekend:main.bikeTravelWeekendDetail&idBikeOvernight=4364 ): The Umpqua Velo Club is proud to participate in the 2022 Cycle Travel Weekend Event! All the close-to-town camping spots had already been taken, so we're going on an epic adventure this year. The ride will start Saturday Morning at 10AM from the Roseburg Public Library Parking Lot, then out beautiful Buckhorn Road and then onto Hwy 138 - the Rogue Umpqua Scenic Highway that parallels the mighty North Umpqua River and up Steamboat Creek Road. We'll camp overnight at the Scaredman Recreation site alongside Canton Creek and take the same route back on Sunday. Feel free to carry everything and make this a bikepacking trip OR toss your stuff into a truck to have it driven out for you. We'll have a pasta dinner Saturday night and a pancake breakfast Sunday morning. BYOB. The ride is open to non-club members who haven't ridden with UVC before, but everyone MUST sign a waiver and MUST wear a helmet! The route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/38433611
