The Siskiyou Velo Club is partnering with the Bear Creek Stormwater Phase II Communities for a ride on Saturday, June 6th in Central Point. The purpose of the ride is to look at techniques to improve the quality of urban runoff that comes from streets, parking lots, driveways, and rooftops that makes its way to local streams and ultimately to Bear Creek and the Rogue River. The route starts from Don Jones Park and will loop through farmland and back through Central Point. Stops will be made along the way to allow Jennie Morgan from Rogue Valley Sewer Services and Greg Stabach from the Rogue Valley Council of Governments to explain various water quality improvement features.
This family-friendly ride will be about 12 miles with no significant hills and breaks for explanations of water quality improvement techniques at various places. There will be a stop for refreshments and a few opportunities for bathroom breaks along the way. The ride should finish up around 11:30.
Start is at 9:00 a.m. from Don Jones Park, 223 West Vilas Road, Central Point. If you are planning to attend, please email Ken Kelley at email@example.com or call (541) 857-6819.
All riders will need to wear a helmet and sign a waiver with the Velo Club.
